Our Beliefs

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Since our inception, we have felt called to build a “church without walls” that hold people captive inside the church or keep people on the outside looking in. We want to create opportunities for people inside and outside of our community to connect with the ultimate Dayspring- Jesus Christ- as we grow in our faith and learn to love God and neighbor.
