What is the Gospel of Jesus and why does it matter?
The Gospel is the good news that God has saved us, justified us, and made possible our participation in his work of redeeming the world (Is 52:7; Eph. 2:1-10; Rom 5:1). We find this good news throughout the story of the entire Bible.
The Gospel of Jesus is central to everything we do as a church.
The Gospel, in and of itself, is the power of God for salvation (Rom. 1:16). By power, we mean that it is more than a message with a meaning, it is a truth that transforms us. We bring it to bear in our hearts, infusing our lives with contentment and purpose, as we receive what Jesus has done for us and then train our habits according to his teaching.
If you are curious to hear more about transforming in light of the Gospel, please join us for a gathering.
Essentials of the faith
When it comes to faith, we hold to the motto:
In Essentials, Unity | In Non-Essentials, Liberty | In All Things, Charity
You can learn more about the essentials of our faith by clicking below.
As a church we align with the Westminster Confession of Faith. It’s an OLD document, filled with meaningful truth. You can read it in modern English by clicking below.
We affirm our denomination’s position paper on human sexuality. You may access it by clicking below.
Ordination of Women
Various churches land differently regarding ordination of women. You can learn more about our view by clicking below.
Suffering & Death
One of the most challenging arguments against Christianity states, “How can an all-loving, all-powerful God allow so much pain and suffering?”

All the details about joining us for a Sunday service

WHERE: Inside the Midas Car Shop in Scott's Addition -- 1212 N Arthur Ashe Boulevard

If you would like your little ones to join in on the BLVD Kids lesson, snack, and craft time, give us a heads up when you arrive, and we will help you get checked in.
EXPECTATIONS: Since we are a church plant, not everything will be perfectly polished or 100% figured out – is it ever?!? (but you know what we mean). Some things are still trial and error, but the core of what we believe, what we hope to become, and what we feel called to do is all well established at this point. If you're okay (or even excited about!) the inevitable mess and fluidity that comes along with church planting, please join us.
CONTACT: If you have questions or simply want to let us know you will be joining us, please don't hesitate to reach out! You can reach Drew by email. Simply click on the button below.
