A Little About Us…

Our mission is to GO into the world, CONNECT with people and CONNECT people to God, GROW them in Christ, equip them to SERVE and send them out as ambassadors for Christ.

 
The church are those called out of the world, called together for a purpose. Our purpose is to exalt God by doing the good works that He has prepared in advance for us to do.
We aim to do this as one body with one mind and one Spirit
Our hope and goal is that the world may see those good works and give praise to our Father in heaven and that by our unity, they would believe that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ into the world.
John 17:21 + Ephesians 2:10 + Matthew 5:16
 
 

Our vision

is to become a multiplying movement that spreads throughout the city of Utica and all of Central New York, sending people all over the world in God’s service. We will appropriately testify to the glory and grace of our God in each unique community in which we are planted. We would be disciples making disciples and churches planting churches: individually transformed and collectively a force fixed on bringing the healing message of Christ to the world. We will be a people who feed the hungry, clothe the naked, welcome the stranger, visit the sick and imprisoned, take up the cause of the fatherless and widow, and care for the refugee.
 

Our Values

We value love above all and believe that God has called us to be kind, compassionate and hospitable people.
We value truth and firmly believe that God’s Word is truth and has been divinely shared with us through the written word, the Holy Bible. God has called us to know truth, testify to truth and proclaim the good news of His Son Jesus Christ and His kingdom. He calls His church the pillar of truth.
God has called us to be true: honest, open and sincere.
 
We value people. God loved the world enough to send His only Son to die for our salvation. We should love the world with the same affection that God does. We believe we should lay down our lives to help others find salvation in Jesus Christ.
 
We value family and tend to relate most to the church as the household of God. We are sisters and brothers and mothers and fathers in Christ.
