our vision


Our vision is to celebrate and follow Jesus through our worship, our life together and our work. Because of the good news of Jesus' death and resurrection, we long to be a community of love and hope moved to engage God's mission of renewal in our city. Cities are epicenters of culture and creativity, but they are also places of tremendous brokenness. Philadelphia boldly displays both, and the scriptures tell us that God is deeply involved in our midst.

In addition to being a center for business and the arts, Philadelphia is a major educational hub. With nearly twenty universities in the region, the observation that the university has replaced the church as the moral center of our society carries great weight. We strive to apply the Christian faith in ways that engage not only in the challenges of vocation and family life in the city, but those of the academy as well.
