Our Vision

Our vision is to plant a church through the faithful proclamation of the gospel, for the salvation of sinners and the building up of the saints, that will become the epicenter of a church planting movement in the Connecticut River Valley.

We envision a church that faithfully and relevantly proclaims Jesus Christ and Him crucified from the whole Bible, in all contexts, and to all people.

We envision a church that will impact Greater Hartford with the gospel of Jesus Christ as sinners are transformed from rebels into worshippers of God in Christ.

We envision a church shepherded by godly men who lay down their lives in Christ-like humility, looking to Jesus, the Chief Shepherd, as our example of sacrificial service to the flock of God.

We envision a church with vibrant whole-hearted worship and deep and transparent body life, where people are vunerable with one another and real before God.

We envision a church in which the gospel of Jesus Christ is displayed before a watching world by our Christ-like love for one another; a love that is sacrifical, bears one another's burdens, considers others as more important than ourselves, and stimulates one another to love and good deeds.

We envision a church whose members live intentionally to reach the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ, who seek to meet needs compassionately but with gospel-driven clarity, knowing that sharing the gospel is the most loving thing that we can ever do for someone.

We envision a church with strategic outreach to families, universities, local schools, and businesses as a means of reaching every generation with the gospel and developing future leaders of the church.

We envision a church whose corporate heart beats for Christ's mission to preach the gospel to all nations.  We are eager to partner with gospel-proclaiming missionaries and missions organizations.

We envision a church that has church planting in its DNA, strategically launching new church-planting churches throughout the Connecticut River Valley by sending trained and supported men and their families into needy areas.
