what we're about

We're a community of people who don't take ourselves too seriously, but take the Gospel seriously.

At the heart of all that we do is a shared culture of humility, engagement, empowerment, and diversity.

who we are

Our vision is to see the people of Hayward and beyond restored to God and each other through Christ. Restoration happens when people experience the Gospel and become disciples of Jesus, committed to leading others to become disciples of Jesus in the everyday stuff of life.

what we believe

We believe that only through God's divine mercy, through Jesus Christ, all people of every race, age and tribe are saved. We receive forgiveness and much more through Him. It is God's true Word, in the Bible, that stands as our guiding rule and norm for our faith and life. Through the Bible, God makes us aware of sin, fills us with faith in Jesus, and guides us in living our lives.
