Love God. Love Others. Make Disciples.
Make Church matter by growing disciples among disconnected Catholics in North Baltimore and influencing churches to do the same elsewhere.
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 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 excellent weekend programs for kids and students where the messages parallel the adult message are equally important.
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.
We believe that Jesus came to seek and save the lost. We heed God’s command to share his name with the world. We look for the opportunity to invite disconnected Catholics to join us. As a church we want insiders to reach outsiders. Our church exists for growth.
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.
