A multiethnic Christian fellowship that teaches & applies the words of Jesus
 

We affirm paleo-orthodoxy, highlighting the history & cultural backgrounds of the Bible
 

It also means we teach the essential doctrines shared by all Christians
 

We practice original Christianity, restoring early-church polity & worship

Agapē Feast of God's Word

Sunday, 10 am–12 pm

The "Agapē Feast of God's Word" is based on the communion meals shared by first-century Christians

 

It features two things that Jesus wants us to do: listen & obey (cf. Matthew 7:24-27)

 

The first part includes music, scripture reading, a dialogic sermon & open mic

 

The second part is the "love feast," or agapē in biblical Greek—an actual meal for communion

Quote

N. T. Wright

For too long we have read scripture with nineteenth-century eyes & sixteenth-century questions.

It's time to get back to reading with first-century eyes & twenty-first century questions
