Our vision is to cultivate an urban-focused, small group driven community of missionaries who wholeheartedly worships God, unconditionally love all people, and boldly live out and extend the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, through Jesus Christ.
Our doctrine is purposely short, purposely simple, and purposely central to the Christian faith: the Apostle's Creed. If you would like to discuss our beliefs in more detail we'd be happy to grab a coffee and talk further.
We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ,
God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
*catholic refers to the universal body of Christ (the church)
"In the essentials we need unity, in the non-essentials we need freedom; but in all things we need love."
Although we hope that our lives an actions will show what we value more than words ever could, here are some words about what we seek to embody. Our seven values listed below can be summarized by these three themes:
We believe that life with Jesus is best experienced in relationship with others. Together we seek to embody radical acceptance, abundant generosity, unconditional forgiveness and sacrificial love.
To be present and open to seeing God in each other and to be actively participating in the community is at the center of what it means for us to engage. We aspire to be a people that love well in the heart of the city.
We believe the way of Jesus is an invitation into peace. To become our most transformed selves opens us to the movement of restoration in our own lives and inspires us to be a part of this movement in Spokane.
