Our Values & Culture

Why we are a Church

Our Values

The Cross

"Jesus is our treasure". The Cross is at the center of the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ. Jesus is at the center of everything we do. So we preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified in everything we do.

(Mark 1:1; 1 Cor 2:2)

The Scriptures

"God's word is our map". We believe the scriptures are God's unified story that leads us to the treasure of finding and following Jesus. Our desire is to see God's unified story in all of the scriptures while meditating on them and to see ourselves in God's story while applying what we meditate on.

(Luke 24:25-27; 2 Tim 3:14-15; Psalm 1)

The Community

"The church is our Eden". We are a Jesus community that believes the local church is a place that should resemble the ideal humanity that was lost in Genesis 3 and restored through faith at the cross. Our desire is to cultivate a community that follows Jesus by living out our Gospel Culture Pillars with one another: Humility, Welcoming, Honesty, Prayerful, Encouraging, and Joyful.

(1 Cor 3:16)

The City

"North Des Moines is our City". We believe God has called us to be a life-giving presence in the city of Des Moines. We desire to invest our lives into the city by loving and serving people like Jesus. Our dream is to see Des Moines prosper and eternal life flow through its streets.

(Jer 29:7; Mark 10:43-45)
