We are a small but diverse group of Christians committed to following Jesus and loving our community.
Although our roots are in the Stone-Campbell restoration movement, we represent a variety of denominational backgrounds. We are also theologically, politically and socially diverse; we have learned that we can differ from one another and still worship, study, fellowship and serve together.
We welcome everyone, men and women, to serve and use their gifts in all aspects of the church's life and leadership. We are active in numerous community ministries including the Tempe Community Action Agency's IHELP, FriendSpeak and ministry on the campus of Arizona State University.
We take scripture very seriously, and all members are encouraged to read and study the Bible (both as individuals and in study groups), that they may interpret scripture for themselves and apply it to their own lives.
We do not insist that members agree with a particular creed or statement of faith beyond affirming that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God” and accepting Him as their Lord and Savior.
Worship with us on Sunday s at 10:30 AM at 2424 South Mill Avenue in Tempe, Arizona.
