Marked with the cross of Christ and sealed by the Spirit, we receive a new identity as followers of Jesus, and the story of Jesus becomes our story. Story matters. The Story Matters Initiative is designed to help congregations articulate their unique missional Identity using the Bible as the framework for finalizing this identity. Once the congregation has chosen a Biblical passage or story that is representative of their missional identity, the congregation becomes intentional about developing discipleship and mission strategies, using their selected Biblical passage or story as the theme for these intentional activities
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
