We exist to help people in the upstate
to connect with Jesus to change their world

OUR CORE VALUES

Prayer is the foundation of all that we do because without God we can accomplish nothing.
We seek to worship Him with our whole lives, mind, body, and spirit (Matthew 6:33 & 22:37).

We are real people who are honest about our flaws. We are a genuine, transparent, united
group of believers who are devoted to biblical truth (1 John 1:8-9, Matthew 23:25-27, & John 13:35).

We want to be known as passionate disciple-makers, committed to engaging the culture
both locally and globally by reaching and teaching others to become followers of Christ. This will not happen accidentally.
Our goal is to lead new believers on a journey of growth and true fulfillment. (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 2:17, & Acts 1:8).

We are a church that values every person at every life stage and circumstance.
Married, single, divorced, or widowed, you are an important part of our family. We desire to build a community of support
where relationships thrive. Our goal is to create safe and exciting environments where children love to attend and their parents are prepared for the journey (Psalm 100:5).

We don’t just want to be people who give. We desire to be known as extremely generous investors.
We really believe it’s better to give than to receive, and we want to invest in people (Acts 20:35 & 2 Corinthians 9:7).

We want to stand out as a church that cares more about other people than ourselves.
We see serving others as a lifestyle, not an event (1 Peter 5:6).

Life happens in community, and we want to intentionally build and reproduce environments
that nurture relationships. We are created with a need for other people, and we believe life is better when we are together (Acts 2:42-47).

We desire to help people in the upstate
to connect with Jesus to change their world

We believe this is only the beginning. We are ALL IN, in the Upstate, for the Upstate, and from the Upstate.
He has given us a clear vision to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. For more about 2021 go to our ALL IN page.
