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 as we continue in our SCRIPT Sermon Series. Pastor Sam will be sharing the message:

“New Jerusalem” based on Revelations 21:1-12, 23-27

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!


“New Jerusalem”

Revelation is not the end of the story. It is really the beginning – a new beginning of sorts. We see that God’s ultimate purpose is to restore all things back to the pre-fall context of paradise. The Bible tells us that God is going to establish His kingdom forever. The new city of Jerusalem represents God’s hope for the world – for all nations to come to Him and to worship. We should not be afraid of what is coming at the end of time. We should live with expectation and even eagerness for God to finally come and redeem all things. The New Jerusalem is the pinnacle of the Good News, and it is a sign that God will have the final and ultimate victory.
