Our Mission and Vision

We are on mission to Worship God, Love His Word, and Build People by drawing both the newcomer and the mature in faith to magnify the Name of Jesus in Fort Collins and the greater Northern Colorado area, worshiping Him in ”spirit and truth” (John 4:23-24).

We envision a wholly devoted, spiritually healthy Church, where under the leadership of the Holy Spirit and the final authority of God’s Word, there is room for both ”head” and ”heart” in musical worship, and an overall posture of worship in our lives seven days a week.

“But a time is coming, and even now has arrived, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” Jesus, to the woman at the well. John 4:23-24

Our Core Values

  • We esteem the Word of God 
  • We view the Holy Spirit as our worship leader 
  • We strive for excellence in everything we do 
  • We seek to magnify Jesus and minimize “self”
  • We are not moved by applause or criticism 
  • We are a surrendered, hope-filled, praying people
  • We believe in championing and equipping the next generation of worship leaders 

Our Goals

  • We seek to be reflective of the greater Church and our surrounding community – intergenerational, culturally diverse, and doctrinally united.
  • We are on mission to grow a congregation of mature, spiritually healthy worshipers.
  • We seek to represent Jesus through worship with such clarity that there are measurable results – professions of faith, baptisms, increased faith, miracles, and other indications of spiritual growth and life within the Body
  • We seek to empower songwriters within the Body and write original music that magnifies Jesus and edifies the Body
  • We seek to take creative risks and continue to innovate as the Spirit leads
  • We seek to cast vision and continue to cast vision until our mission is accomplished, or Jesus returns.

What is Worship?

Worship is guided and directed by God.
Worship requires obedience.
Worship should cost us something.
Musical worship requires precision and excellence.

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” Romans 12:1
