As a church, we are dedicated to empowering each of us to live out Jesus’ commandment by going deeper to worship, connect, serve, invite, and grow. Our worship is joyful and vibrant. We stay connected through unity in our diversity. We serve with joy and sacrifice both in Austin and around the world. We invite others to join us in our journey and we are dedicating to growing in our faith as a community and as individuals.

You can’t love what you don’t know. And the more we know, the more we appreciate what God – the Father, our Creator, Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer, and the Spirit, our Counselor and Guide – has done for us. A deeply rooted faith can withstand the storms of life, is unafraid of questions, and sustains a thoughtful response to God’s love for us. The deeper we go, the more we want to go deeper.
