Our Mission: Transformation

Transforming Lives -> Through Faith -> In the Risen Christ!


Looking for a Church Home?

As a "A House of Prayer for All People"

our mission is transforming lives through faith in the risen Christ! 

As an American Baptist church in a great urban, university and health care

 community our IDENTITY IN CHRIST is shaped, in part, by:

Our Faith Traditions:

  Believer's Baptism: An outward expression of faith in Christ, where those of age are
      immersed in water, which symbolizes washing away sin, and then lifted up,
      symbolizing new life in Christ.

  The Lord's Supper: We practice open Communion in remembrance of Christ's
      sacrifice. All may partake based on his or her conscience, sharing in the breaking

      of bread, which represents the body of Christ; and the cup, the blood of Christ.
  Priesthood of All Believer's: No one (pastor or priest) stands between God and us,
      but Christ alone.
  Congregational Autonomy: We operate independently with minimal hierarchical
  Tolerance for differing views; to interpret scripture as led by the Holy Spirit.

Along with:

  Inclusiveness & Hospitality: Welcoming & connecting people of diverse cultures
      to Christ.

  Sharing Space: We glorify God and serve our community, in part, through the activity
      that takes place inside the historic sacred place entrusted to our care.

  Generosity: Tithing church rental & investment income in support of missions.

  Compassion for spiritual and physical needs.


Lives are transformed through faith, by the grace of God,

when we believe in our heart and confess with our lips

that Christ is our Lord and Savior.
