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 continue with our May sermon series entitled Aftermath+. P. Sam will be sharing a message called:

“No Limits” based on Acts 28:30-31; 2 Corinthians 11:23-28

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!


“No Limits”

The true Gospel is a Gospel with no limits. That is not to say that there will not be opposition. Most certainly, when we do our best to be faithful in declaring the Easter story and make our effort to grow the church, the enemy will be in high gear and attack us from all sides. Paul experienced this over and over again. His list of hardships and sufferings he faced while proclaiming Christ is beyond what we can possibly understand or know. And what’s amazing is that none of those hardships deterred him from his mission. And even at the end of his life, while in prison awaiting execution for his faith in Jesus, he continues to proclaim the Gospel message to those who are guarding him. The bottom line is this: you can chain the messengers of God, but you can never chain the message of the Gospel. The church is called to be a church without excuses, without shame, without limits.
