If you are looking for a church in the Fairfax/Chantilly or Washington D.C. area, we hope that you will join us. We are a Bible-based, nondenominational church, and our whole heart is focused on helping people connect with God and others. We are “seeking to be God’s heart to this community.” Here are some characteristics of our people and gatherings that we seek to uphold.
We are praying everyday that God sends people just like you into our lives. And just as God has done with us, we seek to take people wherever they are in their walk with God. You will be greeted with a smile by friendly who truly care!
Whether you need space or want to engage in meaningful conversation, we seek to be responsive to your needs. If you are looking for deeper relationships, we also invite you to check out one of our small groups.
God And Christ Centered
Our worship focuses on what God has accomplished through Jesus Christ. We praise him by telling of all of his wonderful nature and all of his mighty acts of creation and salvation. We talk to him by offering up prayers, and through Scripture readings and messages from the word of God we listen to him. Through our giving we thank him and acknowledge his rule over all of our lives.
When we gather together, we believe that God himself is present through his Holy Spirit. We offer up spiritual songs using our voices, and we seek to show that the Spirit is indeed among us by demonstrating the characteristics of the Spirit–love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each week, there encountering the risen Christ and remembering his death and resurrection.
In today’s culture, multimedia is a way of life, and so appropriate video, slides, and songs that enhance and illustrate the biblical message are used each Sunday. Our Internet based culture is also highly interactive, and so people share their stories or testimonies of faith, with questions being asked during the message to engage the members. Messages offer practical help for daily Christian living at work, in the family, and in the church.
Jesus said that unless we become like little children, we cannot enter into the kingdom of God. We seek to make the service understandable to children, and even at times have a children’s Bible story time or highlight some of their artwork. Their innocence and creativity give us insight into the heart of God.
Also, to help both parents and children worship through the rest of the service, there is a “children’s worship” section of worship for children age two to first grade. The worship leader dismisses the children at the appropriate time in the service for children’s worship.
Through focusing on God, our faith is built up for service to others throughout the week. We serve each other in our “worship service” by providing opportunities for fellowship, sharing, confessing, prayer requests, and responding to God’s word. People are welcome to be outwardly expressive in their worship or not, each as God has made them.
