God meets, embraces and transforms the culture around us like a purifying fire. God is not irrelevant to the world around us, but is the very best of that culture. And so, we believe that relevance to our culture is not optional.

Creativity :: Earth

God is creative. By breathing life into a lump of earth, God created us. Creativity is the natural result of being formed in the image of a creative God. Therefore, together we celebrate and embrace creativity in every form.
