We are a fellowship of Confessional, Connectional, and Missional churches committed to mutual faithfulness and fruitfulness.

Conviction, Vision, Aim, Hope & Passion

Our CONVICTION is that churches need churches and pastors need pastors in order to effectively join Jesus in making disciples of the nations until he returns and makes all things new.

Our VISION is to facilitate meaningful relationships between churches and leaders that promote healthy congregations that are vibrant in worship, mature in doctrine, rich in fellowship, and fervent in mission.

Our AIM is to joyfully serve together in seeing more and more churches like these planted and established across the globe by assessing, training, sending, and supporting church planting efforts.

Our HOPE is for more men and women, young and old, from every people, tribe, tongue, and nation to enter into fellowship with the Triune God and the family of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our PASSION is to see the name of the crucified & risen Christ exalted above all things in the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God the Father.
