Our Values

We want every single person to know that they are loved, valued, and believed in.

I Am Third

God first. Others second. Me third. Everything we do is upward and outward.


We give and serve sacrificially to make an impact. We grind. We do work. We put in sweat. We do whatever it takes to make an impact for the gospel and to carry out our mission. We are contributors, not consumers.

Empowerment is Exponential

Always look for an opportunity to hand something off or raise up a leader. We equip people and empower leaders to use their God-given gifts to impact the world. Our desire it to sharpen and unleash what God has already put inside you. Disciples make disciples.

All Are Welcome

We make decisions that favor welcoming outsiders rather than coddling insiders. We are friendly and outsider-focused. We don’t care who you are, what you’ve done, or what you believe. We have a culture of inviting.

We Are Real

We value community and therefore must be vulnerable and authentic with one another. We are not perfect and don’t pretend to be. If you have flaws, if you have questions, this is the place for you. It’s ok not to be ok. You don’t have to believe to belong. We don’t agree on everything and that is ok.

Sunday is More DisneyWorld Than DMV

We are high energy, fun, and live life to the fullest. We go above and beyond to be welcoming with over-the-top hospitality. You only get one chance at a first impression.

Details Make the Difference

Excellence matters- we do all things for the glory of God. The best news on the entire planet deserves the best presentation on the planet. We leverage our resources to be the best stewards possible.

Start Shallow, Go Deep

We reach people exactly where they are and equip them to rise to new life in Christ. We start in the baby pool with water wings but move to the deep end. Everything we do should progress our people toward spiritual growth and discipleship.

Speak Life

We encourage, honor, and uplift one another. Words are weighty.

Keep It Simple

We achieve far more by doing far less. We are laser-focused.

We can’t wait to see you!
