A Rich Heritage
Our church's core values are Gospel, Family and Mission.
The gospel is for all of life.
The gospel saves, sanctifies, gathers and sends. It is the principle doctrine of the faith that both reconciles us to God and helps us to become more like Jesus. The gospel motivates and guides everything we do.
The gospel gathers unlikely people into a new family.
God has created us for community and no one was created to succeed in isolation. We’re created to live and grow in community. Even though it isn’t always easy, we will delight in doing life together, believing that God uses others to refine us so that we look more like Jesus.
Everything we say and do ought to be a blessing to Baltimore.
We’re a church that wants to bless our city in our words and actions. Although our faith leads us to be a counter-cultural community that demonstrates what life looks like when Jesus is King, we are a people that have been sent to the city of Baltimore. Therefore, we will not isolate ourselves from the city but rather strive to be honorable citizens bringing joy to the city. The problems that face our city are our problems. We are responsible to bring the gospel to bear on the issues that deteriorate our city’s core.
