WE ARE CROSS FOCUSED
We exist to live in a gospel-centered way. We believe that the gospel is not only the means to be born again but a way of living. That means that all areas of life (sex, money, power, relationships, citizenship, spirituality) should be aligned with the truth of the gospel.
WE ARE COMMUNITY DRIVEN
We desire to be authentic in who we are and in our relationships because we believe that the gospel brings out both honesty and humility in people. For this reason community life is not optional for those who desire to live by the gospel. It is through community life that we can both experience the gospel as well as showcase it for those who do not understand it. In other words, community affirms our faith when our faith or rationality fails us.
WE ARE CITY POSITIVE
We exist to love and renew the city. When God created the world, he gave Adam and Eve the mandate to be fruitful, multiply and exercise dominion over creation. What God intended was that they would build a God-honoring civilization with the use of the resources available to them. Since Adam failed in doing so, God sent Jesus, the true and better Adam, to accomplish the initial task that belonged to the first Adam. In the last two chapters of the Bible we see that history ends with a God-honoring city. In the meantime, we believe that Jesus is using the church to redeem culture. Therefore, the church should be about cities. If the city is captured by the gospel its culture will be transformed.
WE ARE A CATALYTIC MOVEMENT
We desire to birth a movement of churches with the same DNA to renew Miami, and subsequently, the world. Our goal is not to become a great mega-church. Our goal is to make Miami a great city. For this reason, we believe that no particular church will accomplish this task. Only a movement will.
We Believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
We Believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We Believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.
We Believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.
We Believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
We Believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
We Believe that the Holy Spirit dwells in God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
We Believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
We Believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
