WHO WE ARE
We are a group of Christ-Followers that are focused on living lives as closely as we can to Jesus. We are a non-denominational, completely self-sufficient community that teaches Biblical principles of grace, mercy, love, and community service. If you are intimidated or uncomfortable in traditional churches and desire genuine worship and community, this might be a great chance for you to experience a true and authentic encounter with God.
We believe that all worship begins and ends in a genuine encounter with the person and completed work of Jesus Christ. Salvation is not just found in one or two scriptures, but through a personal walk and relationship with Jesus. We are a community dedicated to Christ's saving grace, constant repentance, baptism as a symbol and public profession of Christ's work, the indwelling & empowering of the Holy Spirit (the fruit and gifts), and the marriage of faith and works as the evidence of genuine salvation. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, the Bible as the inspired word of God, and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that as Christ-followers we are strongest when we are pursuing Christ with other people. If we attempt to live the Christian life apart from intimate and genuine friendship and fellowship, we are more vulnerable to Spiritual attack and prone to deception. This is why we strive to create an environment in our small groups (Life Groups) where people are allowed to live transparent lives with one another and are safe to confess failures, struggles, and inconsistencies. Authentic community only happens when we give each other permission to be honest without fear of rejection. Life Groups exist to build relationships, discuss and learn the Bible in a small group setting, and give people the opportunity to pursue Christ together as a people united by His grace.
We strongly believe in showing Christ's love through giving generously to our community. 20% of every dollar given to our church is given back to Murfreesboro through projects that directly benefit the city. 5,000, our homeless and low-income ministry, feeds breakfast at a local park every Sunday morning to those in need. The Bar ministry shows the love of Christ through serving hot dogs and water to individuals coming out of the downtown bars off of the square on Friday nights.
Through church wide community service projects such as Yard Day (where we landscape and mow our neighbors yards), Help Portrait (where we provide free professional portraits to families at Christmas time), and the Fall Festival, we work together to get outside of the church walls and show love to our friends and neighbors closest to us.
We also work with Doors of Hope, Salvation Army, Portico Pregnancy Support Center, and numerous other projects and organizations that benefit members of our community. We believe Jesus has called His church to clothe, feed, & care for those who are in need.
