We believe that ministry is all about relationships. Jesus taught this same thing: it's all about our relationship with Him and our relationship with others (Matthew 22:36-40).
We are intentional about developing meaningful relationships with those different than us. We want to connect people to Jesus and to one another so they can grow in community as God intended.
It is our desire to reflect the diversity of our city. Beyond that, we want Christ to be made known in our city not by our size or by our programs, but by our unity in Christ, regardless of our earthly differences. (John 17:20-23; Romans 15:7)
To accomplish this, we proclaim the message of Philippians 2:3-4 to not look only to our own interests, but to consider others more highly than ourselves in order for God's kingdom to expand.
God doesn't desire converts. He wants disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). Disciples who put Christ first in all things, who learn and live God's word, and who share their faith to make disciples of others.
Restoration's vision for discipleship is simple. We believe the church is not just a building or a location, rather it is the people who represent the body of Christ. We create opportunities to learn and serve together in the context of life outside of Sunday mornings.
