We are a community committed to one another and the Biblical claims of Jesus Christ. We are open to all individuals, giving them the opportunity to make lasting friends, to learning more about the Bible, and to start having a growing intimate, LOVE relationship with Jesus, God, their Father, and the Holy Spirit, who can empower them to live a vibrant, meaningful life.
We are known as a community where vibrant, exciting, heart felt worship is given to God.
We are committed to being a community of evangelism, sharing the "good news" in a relevant way on today's campuses and around the world through mission trips, because Jesus Christ came to set people free and to give them "real" life.
We are committed to being a community that leads people into becoming more like our Biblical model Jesus Christ, through small group times, special retreats and annual conferences.
We are committed to be a community that sees Christ's followers on campuses and in the community live out practically the "one another scriptures" of the Bible, i.e. - care for one another, encourage one another, etc.
We are committed to be a community of prayer, for each other, and for those in the world at large, believing that intense, focused prayer has the power to change other's lives and circumstances around us.
