Church Objectives


To be a training center for God’s supernatural power through prayer & ministry.


To be a place where kids and teens love to hang out and learn how to live & love like Jesus.


To have church culture-shaping influence in our city and around the world.


To have a vibrant network of life groups where people become like family

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

Item No. 01

Worship God

The Kingdom of God is not a geo-political territory, nor is it the people of God. Rather, the Kingdom of God is a dynamic realm. When one enters the Kingdom of God they experience the dynamic reality which exists within the triune God. This means that the experience of the Kingdom (and thus, the experience of God’s presence) is central to our faith.

Item No. 02


The Church exists for the sake of those who are exiled from God. We are called to bring the Gospel of the kingdom to every nook and cranny of creation, faithfully translating the message of Jesus into language and forms that are relevant to diverse peoples and cultures. To this end, we promote a creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative approach to ministry that is faithful to Jesus and expressive of His heart to reach those who are far away from God.

Item No. 03


Jesus is reconciling humans to God, to each other, and to the entire creation, breaking down divisions between Jew and Gentile, slave and free, male and female. Therefore, we are committed to becoming healing communities engaged in the work of reconciliation wherever sin and evil hold sway. We seek to be diverse communities of hope that realize the power of the cross to reconcile what has been separated by sin

Item No. 04


We lean toward the lost, the poor, the outcast, and the outsider with the compassion of Jesus as sinners who only standing before God is utterly dependent on the mercy of God. This mercy can only be truly received inasmuch as we are willing to give it away.

Bruce has been in Houston for about 2 years and loves music and adventures. Bruce is honored to lead our Student Ministry Team. He sees each student as an amazing creation of God with a God-given purpose. His joy is hanging out with them, encouraging them and most importantly pointing them to Jesus.
