About Us

Who we are and what we believe

Our Mission

Love God. Love Others. Make Disciples.

Our Vision

Make Church matter by growing disciples among disconnected Catholics in North Baltimore and influencing other churches to do the same elsewhere.

Our Strategy

We aim to be a church that people who don’t like church, like! Our strategy is to creatively reach out to disconnected Catholics in our North Baltimore community with a fresh and relevant presentation of the life-changing message of the Gospel to help them take their next steps on the path of discipleship to make them fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Our Focus

Our weekend experience is central to our strategy and the weekend message is central to the weekend experience. Music, message and ministers work together to create an irresistible environment of energy and excellence in which newcomers feel welcome and want to come back. We believe in excellent weekend programs for kids and students where the messages parallel the adult message and are equally important.

Our Purpose


We believe in Orthodox Christianity, as taught by the Roman Catholic Church. The Eucharistic celebration is the source and summit of our faith, which we seek to live and serve with the whole of our lives in vibrant and creative ways; in other words, we strive for a “Dynamic Orthodoxy.” Excellence in our worship honors God.


We believe that our Baptism makes us one family in which we learn to love one another as Christ loved us. We strive to build a church culture through Small Groups where people are open and authentic, especially about their need to grow and change. Our community does life together.


We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God. Our preaching and messages aim to break open the relevance of the Bible for our daily lives. Changing and growing into the likeness of Christ is not just greater knowledge of our faith, but doing what God’s Word says. Discipleship ultimately means life-change.

Evangelization of the Next Generation

God is on the move, and we get to be a part of what He’s doing. Evangelization simply means sharing your faith with those who do not have faith or have become disconnected from Christ and his Church. Pope Saint John Paul II noted that our faith grows when it is shared. In giving our faith to others, we grow to know the Lord better. We share our faith in a number of ways but a good first step is the strategy of “invest and invite.”  That means we invest in the relationships we have with people in our lives, and when the time comes, invite them to Church with us.


We believe that the Holy Spirit has prepared works for us to do that will advance the kingdom of Christ. We recognize God’s call on our church to serve both within our parish and also beyond: in our city, our country, and in the world. In the service of the Lord we are challenged to always do more. We accept that challenge.
