Our mission is to make disciples. To love God and love others while clearly communicating the gospel. We believe the gospel changes lives and desire to help people go ALL IN for Jesus Christ.
The Church We See
We see a community where people from all backgrounds gather together as one to worship Jesus Christ.
We see a family for people who are healthy and hurting, fearful and faith-filled.
A church where whosoever, means whosoever.
A church where people can come as they are and be loved as they are.
A church that truly says, welcome home.
We see a church that shares hope in a skeptical, cynical, fearful world.
We see a growing, vibrant church multiplying and reproducing to reach beyond with the gospel of Christ.
Beyond the walls of a building, beyond the walls of cultural separation, beyond where we have been, but never beyond God's reach.
We see churches planted across the Pioneer Valley and Western Massachusetts, cooperating to share God’s truth, build strong faith, and send the gospel to the world.
We see a church that is a regional training center for Bible study, evangelism and worship.
We see a church working together with other churches, championing them to build the body of Christ and glorify God.
We see a church that thousands of people call home.
Where Jesus is lifted high every day.
Where hurts are healed, captives are set free, and relationships are reconciled.
Where the defeated find victory, where the lonely find a place to belong and be loved.
We see a future that is seen with eyes of faith, that exists in the heart of God and flourishes to become all that God has designed.
We believe in a God of great promise. A Heavenly Father who is faithful to His Word.
We believe that Jesus is God's Promise to Us. He is truth, He is good, He is Love and He is life. 2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.
