A GROWING FAMILY OF INITIATIVES
Our ecclesiology is simple: When a group of people band together in sincere worship and genuine community to accomplish a part of the mission of God, they are the church. WORSHIP, COMMUNITY and MISSION then are the ecclesial minimum.
These groups, no matter their name or size, are the essential unit of Church; and every follower of Jesus needs to be part of at least one. Our model of Church is to affirm, empower, and release a network of Micro-Initiatives and Micro-Churches that are supported by a city-wide network for camaraderie, coaching, and resourcing.
A "BEAUTIFUL MESS"
We inspire, equip, train, network, pray for, coach, support, and celebrate every individual who desires to know and respond to God's unique calling on his/her life...without any predetermined model. This is a distributive, rather than a centralized, manifestation of Church. We gather occasionally for teaching, worship, prayer, encouragement and camaraderie...so that we can effectively scatter constantly to re-present Jesus to the world around us. So this is not a centralized thing that looks like a finely-tuned machine, but a de-centralized network that's constantly developing, adapting, expanding.....and it's a bit messy.
