Our vision is that every student in Santa Maria would find and follow Christ for life. Our mission is to love and encourage students towards Christ by leveraging intentional programs. Our strategy involves programs that accomplish effective community outreach, intentional relationship development, holistic discipleship training, and first-class leadership equipping.
Jesus, the Creator of all things, invented fun. And because Jesus is the Author of fun, His people have the opportunity to throw the BEST kinds of parties! Fun is a great tool for bringing people to Christ. Jesus is to be awed and respected, but He is also to be enjoyed! As Jesus followers, we believe that Jesus invented fun, so let’s party!
1 Cor 2:1-5; 2 Cor 12:9-10
We get to be exactly who God made us to be and to be met right where we are…complete with flaws, weakness, struggles, and failures. It is our brokenness that unites us in pursuit of a Savior, and it is our authenticity that allows our brokenness to be used for good. We believe we are a hospital for broken people, not a museum for good ones.
Psalm 139:13-18; Luke 15:1-7
Of all the places in the world and all the moments in time we could have been alive, we are where we are, when we are. Jesus created us uniquely and with a unique purpose.. We all were made in God’s Image and carry inherent dignity, value, and worth. In the midst of a big church that has big events, we choose to see the individual and get to know people personally. Groups are made up of individuals, and group leaders who don’t know the individuals aren’t leading a group. We believe that every persons’ name, story, and gifts matter.
Matthew 10:39; 1 Peter 4:8-11
Jesus said that if we lay our lives down to serve Him, we will find the full life that we were meant to live. As servants we trust that by the power of the Holy Spirit, serving others will not only change us but also have the potential to change the world. Many Biblical scholars believe that most of the disciples were teenagers. If Jesus chose teenagers to bring His message to the world, we do too. We believe the Holy Spirit can use teenagers to change the world through serving others.
Come grow with us.
