ABOUT US

Mission

INVITING EVERYONE TO EXPERIENCE THAT JESUS MAKES LIFE BETTER.
      

Values

We value …
REAL OVER RELIGIOUS 
Because we would rather be always real than always religious.
Acts 15:19 • It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God.
     
WE OVER ME
Because everything in life works better when it’s not about me.
Colossians 3:12-14 • Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
    
STEPS OVER STATEMENTS
Because what we do with what we believe is what really matters.
James 1:22-25 • But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
    
GIVING OVER GETTING
Because the value of a life is found in how much of it is given away.
Romans 12:1-2 • Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
 
PEOPLE OVER PREFERENCES
Because reaching people is eternally more important than my personal opinion.
Matthew 28:19-20 • Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
       
CREATIVE OVER COMFORTABLE
Because we’ll never be satisfied with safe or content with mediocre.
Philippians 3:12-14 • Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

OUR COMMUNITY

Climb a mountain trail, explore a national park, and go sightseeing any day of the week. Many who call the Aurora/Denver area home are captivated by the outdoor life that surrounds the area. With many activities and attractions available year-round, residents have a hard time choosing what to see and do. With close to 300 days of sunshine each year, the city is a premier location for growing families, adventure-loving millennials, professionals, and mature adults in their prime years.  To say that Aurora is a haven for outdoor recreation is an understatement. The area is popularly known for its unique art museums, breathtaking landscapes, perfectly manicured golf courses, endless trails, long-standing agritourism, a rich cultural lifestyle, the abundance of wildlife, and last, but certainly not least, professional athletics.  
   
Aurora is the 3rd most populous city in Colorado, and the 56th most populous city in the United States (estimated at over 345,000 in the 2010 U.S. Census). Straddling the highways of I-70 and I-225, the city is composed of several neighborhoods, districts, and military installations.
  
Based on data gathered over 7 years, the highest average temperature in southeast Aurora is found to be in July, at 85-degrees, with the perfect combination of sun and breeze. Lovers of winter weather will find its 28-degree Christmas season to be highly appealing, with crystal white snowfalls of 52-inches each year.
   
The city of Aurora ranks in the Top 10 cities for healthcare, anchored by the award-winning Anschutz Medical Campus with its own children’s hospital. It is home to Buckley Air Force base and all five branches of the military that have been responsible for over 40,000 military ops to date. The 400 types of ethnic food offerings and eclectic blend of flavors speak to Aurora’s cultural diversity, which consists of 45% Caucasian, 29% Hispanic, 15% African American, and 5% Asian populations living within the city limits.
   
One of Colorado’s best school districts, Cherry Creek, is located in southeast Aurora, and the University of Colorado, Colorado State University, and the Air Force Academy (USAFA) lead the higher education system of the state. Forbes ‘Best States for Business’ ranks Colorado at #5, and lists it as the only state that is not a right-to-work state, as well as having the expectation to be the 6th fastest job growth state over the next 5 years.
