Who We Are.

We are the broken, the misfits, and the hurting. We are not the ones who “got it right.” In fact, we’ve tried that and failed already. We don’t think we know everything, nor do we pretend to have it all figured out. What unites us is the story of Jesus, because He did all the things we couldn’t. Where we failed, He succeeded. Where we are broken, He brings healing. And where we only have questions, Jesus brings answers. With every challenge, we have found that Jesus brings breakthrough. This makes us a family, beautiful and always growing, struggling and experiencing new life each and every day. So if you’re like us—imperfect, messed up, and still asking questions—you’re in the right place.

2020 was difficult for all of us. There are no exceptions. Many of the things we once took for granted are no longer possible.  Our church is no exception. With the departure of our founding pastor and the effects of the pandemic on our church, we knew that we had two choices: Either we would keep going like we always have and hope things would magically get better or we would choose to change. The first option might feel safer, but it was always bound to fail in the end. So we chose to step out, take a risk, and start an entirely new church. We are convinced that Paul’s words to us as individuals will one day be true of us as a church: “[We] are a new creation. The old has gone and the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

If you’re like most people, you’ve grown tired of waiting for the day to come when things would finally “get back to normal. But what if normal wasn’t the point? What if it wasn’t even the best next step? What if there was something even better right around the corner? That is why we are here: to go beyond finding a new normal and help others discover something better than mere existence, something better than “normal.” The Inland Empire has many churches, but not many churches for the people who gave up on church a long time ago. We are forming a community of people who want a breakthrough for our area. Our hope is that our church can be just a small part of helping our city make 2020 a distant memory compared the wonder and awe of what Jesus is doing in and through it.

The Bible. God’s Story

The Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is the divinely inspired Word of God, the final and trustworthy authority for faith and practice, and the story which gives meaning to our existence. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and is truth without error and is found today exactly as God intended it to be. The Bible is the supreme authority for faith and practice for followers of Christ.
(Deut. 4:1-2; II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)

God. Three in One

God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. God exists in one essence in a perichoresis of three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
(Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; John 4:24, 14; Gal. 4:6; 2 Pet. 1:17; Psalm 2:7ff; Isaiah 7:14; John 1:1-18; Hebrews 1:8; Psalm 51:11; 1 John 4:13, 5:7; Acts 5:3-4)

The Father. Our Protector

God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. It is in Him that we live, move, and exist. God is good: He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Christ Jesus.
(Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; John 3:16, 4:24, 5:26, 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4)

Jesus. Our Hero

The Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, fully divine, fully human, the eternal and pre-existent Word. His death made full atonement for our sins. He lived a perfect life and received punishment for our sins when He died on the cross. He defeated death in His resurrection so that all who trust in Him could have life.
(Is 7:14; 53; Matt 1:18-23, 14:33, 16:16, 28:5-6; Lk 22:70; John 1:1-3, 14; 10:30; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Rom 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8; 10:4, 2 Cor 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Phil 2:5-11; 1 Tim 2:5-6; 3:16; Heb 1:1-3, 4:14-15, 12:2, 13:8)

The Holy Spirit. Our Guide

The Holy Spirit convicts people of their sin, guides believers into all truth, empowers all who believe in Jesus Christ, and reveals the righteousness of God. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, helps, teaches, and guides God’s children into the likeness of Christ.
(Genesis 1:2; Psalms 51:11, 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 6:1:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35, 4:1, 11:13, 12:12; John 15:26, 16:7-14; Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 2:38, 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17)

Eternity. Somewhere Forever

Humans were created to exist forever, whether eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. Heaven is eternal life with God and Hell is eternal separation from God. Both are places of eternal existence.
(Matthew 24:29-31; Matthew 25:31-46; John 3:16, 36, 11:26-26; Romans 6:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 1 John 2:25, 5:11-13; Rev. 20:4-6, 11-15)

Humanity. God’s Reflection

Humans are made in the image of God and are the supreme object of God’s creation created to have fellowship with Him, but became separated in that relationship through sin. As a result, human beings cannot attain a right relationship with God through our own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Godly love.
(Gen 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-19; 3; Ps 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Acts 17:26-31; Rom 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6, 12-21; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Cor 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Col 1:21; 3:9-11)
(Deut. 4:1-2; II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)

Salvation. God’s Only Way

Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection provides the only way of salvation for the forgiveness of sin. When people trust Jesus Christ as Savior, they receive salvation. Salvation is a gift from God and it cannot be earned through our own efforts. Through Christ the believer becomes a new creation whose mind and will are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
(Matt 1:21; 22:37-38; 27:22-28:6; 28:18-20; Rom 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 8; 10:9-10; 13; 1 Cor 1:18; 2 Cor 5:17-20; Gal 2:20; 3:13; Eph 2:8-22; Phil 2:12-13; Heb 9:24-28; 1 John 1:6-2:11; Rev 3:20)

The Church. Plan A

The Church is God’s chosen instrument to accomplish His mission to rescue lost people. We believe in the local church and the instruction of the Bible to all Christ followers to associate themselves in a visible, local church. Members of the local church are to be on mission with God in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
(Matthew 16:15-19; 28:18-20 Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 1:8; 16:30-33; I Corinthians 6:19; 11:23-26; Galatians 3:26-28; Eph. 1:22-23; Hebrews 10:23-25; James 1:27; 2:8)

Partner with us.

Starting a new church is a faith stretching, risk taking, audacious effort! It takes more than just attenders to see a new church come to life: it takes a team. There are three ways you can partner with us in this effort:

Plan a Visit.

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at our church a great one.

What to expect

We are committed to providing gatherings that are safe and impactful. You can expect high energy music and an encouraging message.
Services last about an hour.

What about kids?

Your kids are going to have a blast! We make this a priority every single week. The other thing we make a priority is your child’s safety.

We know how nervous it can make a new parent to have a crying child in a public place. You can relax. We love babies! Every time we hear a child, it’s just a reminder that we are all one big family. So bring your little one. We would love to see them!

Your child can enjoy the service in one of two ways:

Kids play area: We have created a play area next to the gathering space just for kids to gather during the service. We will provide a background checked adult to ensure your child is safe and they will check your child in when you arrive. Also, because it’s so close you can always look over whenever you’d like just for peace of mind.

Busy Bags: Grab a kids bag from the table on your way in and have your child(ren) sit with you during the service. It is filled with fun things to keep him/her occupied. You can grab a bag every single week or bring back the one you got the first time. New bags will be supplied regularly.

As you enter, grab a Busy Bag from the children’s table and have your child(ren) sit with you during the service. The bag is filled with fun things to keep him/her occupied. You can grab a bag every single week or bring back the one you got the first time. New bags will be supplied regularly.

We have an awesome group that meets during the week for students led by background checked, trained youth leaders. But bring your student on Sundays, too! Our music is upbeat and contemporary, and pastor was in youth ministry for over 15 years, so we think your child(ren) will love it.
