The good-news of Jesus is needed everywhere. Throughout 2017, God called our family to participate in his ongoing work in South Richmond. Since then, we have set down roots, built relationships, and discovered our identity as a church.
We believe Richmond is a beautiful city of neighborhoods; where people of many backgrounds live, work, play and discover meaning. It is a city marked by the very fingerprint of God. Yet, many in Richmond are still searching for more. Richmond is filled with struggling, confused, divided, and homesick people looking for a people, a place, and a purpose. For this reason Jesus came to give us a home and make us his family.
As a church, we envision, pray towards, and are slowly becoming a counter-cultural church family in RVA. We are becoming a vibrant church that embraces the Gospel and embodies it in every sphere of life. We are becoming a church that overcomes barriers of difference for the sake of God's glory reflected in the unity of his people. We are becoming a church that equips people to join his work of restoration.
Jesus moved into the human neighborhood for us. He lived for us. He died for us. He conquered Satan, sin and death for us. Through him, we are "no longer strangers and outcasts, but fellow citizens with all the saints and members of the family of God" (Eph. 2:19). Our story is one of strangers made family in Christ.
