church planting

Every church was once a church plant. Some sprang up from humble beginnings, some as a part of organized strategies. Some to accommodate growing populations, some to escape persecution, some to carve out a particular theological niche, some for cultural affinity.

As we think about church planting in Boston, our approach is one of gospel renewal: an application of the gospel to every sphere of our lives so that it continually reshapes the way we think about ourselves and our world.

It is the gospel that reconciles us to God... that empowers us to live for others... that heals social brokenness... that invites all those who are weary and burdened to come and find rest in Jesus.

Our desire to plant churches is rooted in our longing to see this kind of gospel renewal transform the city—person by person and neighborhood by neighborhood—for the glory of God and for the joy of the city.
