Authentic Living

We’re a community of people continuing to be shaped by the Scriptures.

Sundays

Join us for a time of worshiping together in a grace-filled and Christ-centered atmosphere.

Beliefs

We have a firm foundation that defines our church and points us to the Truth of the Gospel.

Leadership

Our team of pastors and elders are kind and approachable and they serve our community well.

Small Groups

Our weekly Gospel communities give us time to connect, encourage and love each other well.

Core beliefs

We believe God has called us to live in line with Scripture, and His Word has informed our church’s beliefs.

The Bible tells the story of the Good News of Jesus, and keeping the Gospel at the center of our ministry is fundamental to the workings of our church. The redemptive plan of God is the grid through which we see ministry and it shapes how we interact with our community.
– 1 Corinthians 15: 1-3, Galatians 2:20-21, Philippians 3:1-16
When we gather for worship, we do so by singing Gospel-centered songs of praise, caring for one another and submitting to the Word of God. We stand firm on the Truth of the Bible because it’s inspired by God and used to equip us for every good work.
– 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We follow Biblical examples of how to love our brothers and sisters in Christ and serve one another in Christian community. In a culture that moves us into isolation we strive to be intentional about embracing others. We encourage our members to be involved in small groups and other ways to grow in the knowledge of the Scripture.
– Acts 2:42-47, Ephesians 4:2-3, 1 Corinthians 1:10
Jesus calls us to “go and make disciples” where we are. We are committed to the northeast quadrant of Lincoln, Nebraska, and most specifically to the Havelock community and are so desirous to saturate it with the incredible news of Jesus!
– Luke 24:45-49, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, Romans 10:10-15, 2 Corinthians 5:18-21
We strive to live in a grace-filled community that loves well and forgives quickly, acknowledging our sin but resting in His grace. We hope to be aware of our daily need of God’s empowering and sustaining grace as we work to extend that grace to each other.
– Ephesians 4:32, John 13:34-35
