WHAT WE’RE ABOUT
Sadly, Christians are typically known for the things they’re against, rather than the things they’re for. Here’s what we’re about …
Jesus is the point. Our sin has separated us from God, but Jesus’ death and resurrection paid the penalty for our sin and restored our broken relationship with God. Because of Jesus we now get to approach God with boldness and confidence as sons and daughters. Not because of anything we’ve done, because of what Jesus has done for us.
God has graciously chosen to reveal Himself to us through His Word: the Bible. We strive to be a people who treasure the Word of God evidenced by our knowledge of it and our obedience to it.
Jesus is the man. The Bible calls Him the Lion and the Lamb. That means He’s strong, bold, courageous and hates sin. But He’s also merciful, empathetic, compassionate and gracious. The more we follow Jesus, the more we figure out how to look like Him and reflect His character to those around us.
It’s completely possible to enjoy life if you don’t know Jesus. The problem is that Jesus came to give life and life abundantly. That means you’ll never experience fullness of life without a relationship with the One who offers it most extravagantly. We have a heart for people who don’t know Jesus because we truly believe they’re shortchanging themselves.
God tells us that He has created every person in His image. We call it the imago dei. That means every single person has an inherent dignity that should be respected. We strive to protect and fight for those created in the image of God when their dignity is under attack.
The body of Christ is diverse. The gospel unifies a diverse population of ages, personalities, races, ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, education levels, senses of fashion, and social cues. It honestly doesn’t make sense how people so different could ever get along. We strive to be a place that fosters a community so uncommon that people skeptical of what we believe can’t argue with how well we love each other.
Life can be pretty brutal. But Jesus provides a joy that doesn’t change when our circumstances do. He helps us see that our hope is not in this world, but in Jesus and His promise to restore and redeem this broken world. So we endure the ups and downs of this life with joy because we know our hope is in Jesus, not our circumstances.
WORSHIP WITH US

Wednesday nights are where it’s at if you want free food, more worship and solid teaching. We believe that no matter where you are in life, God wants to begin—and then continue—a work of Renovation in you. Be a part of the larger young adult community in Fort Worth!
We make it a priority to create rad memories together every year. That’s why we head out of town together twice a year: over fall break to the mountains of Colorado and during spring break to Belize. Every trip is a chance to bond as a group, serve local ministries, worship Jesus and have an all-around sweet time. We think either trip has the chance to change your life!
Come spend fall break with us in Denver, Colorado! Our annual trip has everything you could possibly want in a fall break experience: mountains, friends, coffee, an excuse to wear flannel, incredible food, van dance parties, hiking, an opportunity to serve with a rad organization and so much more! The best part is that it only costs $420! Sign up and we’ll take you on a trip you’ll never forget!
Every spring break we serve and love the people of Belize! Our team will travel to the southern part of the country where our brothers and sisters are in need. We will be running a children’s program where we get to love the kids of Belize as Christ does, and we’ll also get to tackle several construction projects to bless these people! It will be a trip that (most likely) changes your life!
Tuesdays, Beginning Sep. 10*

The Avodah Project
June 1 through July 24, 2020
It’s pronounced a·vō·dä’ and it’s a Hebrew word that is used for “serve,” “work” and “worship.” The Avodah Project is where work and worship connect. We’re not just designed to serve Jesus on Sundays; we’re here to bring worship into our work. So The Avodah Project is committed to faith and work going hand in hand in student internships during the summer. More info is coming soon, but what you need to know now is you’re required to have a summer 2020 DFW area internship lined up before applying.
Applications open November 24.
LET’S HANG OUT
Our College staff would love to get to know you personally! Reach out to any of us and we’ll grab coffee, get lunch, go to the movies … whatever you want to do!
