We believe that The Bible is the inspired Word of God. We also know that most people, Christians and non-Christians alike, wrestle with the Truth of God’s Word at various times in their lives. We find it helpful to understand the storyline first, then, find yourself in the story. Asking questions & seeking answers regarding God is just about the most important adventure of the human life. Too often, Christians act as if they don’t wrestle and dismiss those who are honest enough to admit they do. We embrace the tension and encourage the quest to find ourselves in The Story! We also know that in order to do so, we must understand and believe the gospel. We are "Kingdom minded," in that we believe that our daily mission is to bring God's redemption into every aspect of life wherein we find ourselves. We invite you to get to know the person and work of Jesus Christ with us, and allow Him to shape our lives in community.
It is because of Christ's death in our place that we do not experience the wrath of God which we so justly deserve. Jesus Christ satisfied God's justice and turned away God's wrath from us by bearing it Himself on our behalf. Now God can extend mercy to us without subverting His justice. Mercy and justice meet together at the cross. We are here, at such a time as this, to share this Good News with our community. We are a multi-generational, Christ exalting community of faith committed to sharing the love, mercy, and grace of God that we have so richly received.read more
WHAT IF CHURCH WASN'T A PLACE YOU GO BUT WHO YOU ARE?
What if a few neighbors lived out faith with you in the everyday rhythms of life? You'd share meals, watch each others kids, party together, serve neighbors, restore what's broken in your community, talk about Jesus a lot and see people begin to follow Him. It would be messy and it would be glorious.
We want to say, "Yes, absolutely, for sure! You're gonna love it." But, we are under no illusions that everyone is going to dig what God is doing among us. We are tired of wearing masks, exhausted by the impulse to be approved by our religious efforts, and desperately in need of The Savior. We know we are sinners and we bask in the grace of God. We are not here to impose anything, but rather to expose the love of Christ. If you simply want to "go to church," this probably won't be a good fit. But, if you want to learn and apply the teachings of Christ in every aspect of living, then Real Life just may be a community for you.read more
