Glad you're here! This page is so important for the future of our congregation. Maybe you will become part of this exciting transformation with us.
When we talk of the future, we must not forget the past. While we expect many things to change, there are some things that must stay the same.
- Our Message: we will always preserve and preach the good news of God's grace and forgiveness for sinners under God's wrath through faith in Jesus Christ and his substitutionary death for mankind.
- Our Mission: Jesus defined the mission of the church before it ever began: "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20). All this is done to fulfill our purpose: to glorify God in everything.
- Our Motive: "Do everything in love" (1 Corinthians 16:14). Everything we do, if it's not motivated by and performed in love, is meaningless. So our love for Jesus compels us to love people like he did.
No local church is permanent. Jesus is building his Church (capital 'C'), which is eternal and is made up of many local churches (lowercase 'c'). Even the churches from the New Testament aren't permanent, and have left space for other churches to take their places.
When our congregation came to the determination that it was time to bring the history of this church to a close, we also knew it wasn't the end of the work Jesus was doing. So we decided to give everything we had to the continuing work of Jesus in building his Church. That's why we have devoted resources to supporting church plants in our region and to planting new churches ourselves.
Right now, followers of Jesus are gathering regularly to train and prepare for the exciting opportunity to plant churches together. You can join the team and make a difference with us.

As we plant a new church in the NOVA region, we will also be looking for other church plants in the area to support.
Once we get our plant established, it's our goal to begin multiplying our church into a network of churches across the region, where we can reach more an more people who need to be introduced to Jesus.
Jesus is starting something amazing. Please pray, join, donate, and support our efforts to make Jesus impossible to ignore and easy to follow right here in our region.
