In a world of totally right and totally wrong—entirely good and entirely evil—we seek bridges from people in the church to people in the marketplace. In a world of blind passions and willful ignorance, we represent a message of acceptance and love.
We believe the Lord is moving within the marketplace through the disenfranchised who are finding alternative ways to fellowship, worship, and study the Word of God.
We believe in the Word of God, but we do not use it as a club to beat people with, or a guest list to keep riffraff out, or a proof text to bolster prejudice, or a textbook with which to answer every question we throw at it. We go to the word as a key to unlock the mysteries of God, and we are prepared for the fact that those mysteries may lead us to more questions than we had when we started. We go to the word because we find God there within its pages through His Holy Spirit.
We are comfortable with ambiguity and paradox; indeed, a good deal of the truth we hold dear is made up of both. We renounce rigid delineations of people into categories and embrace all men and women as unique creations of God with intrinsic value.
And most of all, we love Jesus. Jesus is it. He is the whole enchilada. If you have Jesus, you have the Father and the Spirit. We love the fact that we cannot outline Jesus, program him, summarize him, polarize him, popularize him, or second-guess him. Only follow him, which we do by loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and loving our neighbor as ourself.
