Mission & Vision

Mission: We exist to glorify God by advancing the message of Jesus Christ through Gospel Centered: worship, community, training & sending.

Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20). We are committed to living out this mission together through the help of partnering churches, generous donations, prayer, old-fashion hard work, and the Holy Spirit's power.

Vision: Our vision is to advance the gospel by reproducing multi-generational, gospel-centered missional communities throughout the Route 8 corridor (South Butler to North Pittsburgh). This will include the strategic multiplication of Community Groups and Church Plants. We believe God is leading us to launch four new churches by 2025. In fact, 10% of our annual budget will be continually set aside for church planting throughout this region.

Strategy & Beliefs

Our strategy is simple and can be communicated in 3 questions:

1. How can we bless our neighbors and community?

2. How can we cultivate and reproduce inclusive communities where

people are safe to be who they are without fear of being judged?

3. How can we create environments for people to meaningfully connect to God?

Our Beliefs

"In essentials unity. In non-essentials liberty. In all things love." St. Augustine

God has worked in many ways through ordinary people. We are thrilled to have been witnesses of His grace and faithfulness!

The link below is our version of an annual report. It is designed to illustrate a greater picture of the ministries of the church.

We look forward to 2019 and beyond with great expectation as we strive to live lives worthy of the Gospel.

Our Logo

Each arrow in the logo has progressive significance as people grow in their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ:

The BLACK ARROW represents people who are SEPARATED from God’s saving grace.

The 2ND ARROW represents people who have been SAVED by God’s saving grace.

The 3RD ARROW represents people who SERVE as a result of God’s saving grace.

The LAST ARROW represents people who are SENT to proclaim God’s saving grace.

Our leadership strategy is simple. We want to help people progressively advance through these stages of spiritual growth.
