our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God

our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves

our hope is that the best is yet to come

Join us this Sunday at EMBRACE as we embark on a new sermon series called JUSTFAITH. P. Sam will sharing the message entitled:

“WHY JUSTICE MATTERS” based on Isaiah 61:1-8; Micah 6:6-8

We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.

EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.

We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.

We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.

EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.

We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.

We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.

EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.

Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.

We’ll see you this Sunday!



Make no mistake about it. God loves justice and hates injustice. For a few weeks, we will be focused on having conversation on justice matters, because simply put: justice matters. God requires of us to live in just ways, to promote the welfare and wholeness for all people. The reality is that there is a lot of injustice in this world and unfortunately (or more accurately, ashamedly) the church has turned a blind eye to the many things in this world that is not right. It is time for EMBRACE to bring such things to light and commit ourselves to work hard to right the wrongs around us. God expects nothing less of us.
