“God shows no partiality” ~ Acts 10:34.
We celebrate by praising and thanking God for allowing us to experience His mercy and grace. We celebrate the Holy Spirit’s gifts and fruits abundantly poured out upon us, as Her power and comfort call us deeper into a life with Jesus. We celebrate the giftedness of every human being. We celebrate the gift of fellowship and the freedom to worship God. We celebrate the gift of a life free in Jesus.
All are called to God. All belong to him. We see ourselves in the celebration business not the damnation business. All are welcomed to celebrate with us and share in His Communion.

“The Best Churches are those that are NOT telling people what they can/cannot do…The Best Churches empower their people. We need to hear from God. Pastors need to teach and then aid people in hearing from God themselves.”
