WHO WE ARE

OUR VISION

We exist to see every man, woman and child in the greater Lakeland area and the world experience redemption through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

OUR VALUES

Committed To The Gospel…

The Gospel must be central to everything we are and do as a church. It is the power of God to save and transform every aspect of our lives. It is this defining message that changes everything for us.

Calling Others To The Gospel…

We are compelled by the great love of Jesus to be ambassadors for Christ. We desire to call others to be reconciled with God through the Gospel. We will call others through demonstrating and declaring the Gospel.

Connected To Gospel Community…

Through the death of Jesus, we are connected to others in community. The Gospel brings together people in new and compelling ways, tearing down barriers and allowing us to be vulnerable and transparent with others.

Contributing To Gospel Work…

In light of God’s generosity to us in Jesus, we are compelled to use our time, talents, treasure, and testimony (story) to show Jesus’ infinite value and worth and see the Gospel advance into new lives and hearts.
