Our Vision

As a family of Christ’s disciples on mission to serve each other and our communities, we are learning, growing, and being empowered by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, to the glory of God.

We started in the Bridesburg neighborhood for over a decade and our story began with the purchase of a bar on the corner of Richmond and Buckius. We are now in a new building for Sunday morning gathering located in Manayunk at Platform Thirty at Beat Street. We also gather together regularly as Missional Communities and DNA Groups.


What We Believe

As a missional church with a new identity in Christ, we believe that the primary purpose of the visible church in the world, is to make disciples, who make disciples. This is done by engaging people in their context, and partnering with the Spirit of God to bring about conformity and obedience to Christ and his gospel of living by the the law of love.

We believe this is best accomplished through missional communities, which emphasize local commuity, Christ’s gospel, and the mission of God to restore all things to Himself. We also believe that those who are living in community must gather regularly with others who share these values. By developing this rhythm of life with others, we can regularly worship God and celebrate what He is doing.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
