Mission: Our mission is to catalyze a holistic gospel movement in the bay area that results in spiritual and societal transformation. Spiritual transformation is the result of an increasing number of people loving god with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength; societal transformation is the result of an increasing number of people loving their neighbor as themselves.
