Most of the conflicts and problems churches face can be traced back to some sort of lack of relational or emotional wholeness. The brokenness we have experienced in our past relationships, and in our own interior life has this way of seeping into our relationships. We believe that God’s redemption should extend to our interior life and to the way we relate to the world. Because of this conviction, we hope to experience redemption in four directions: the way we relate to God, to others, to ourselves, and to the created order. We attempt to practice fidelity with one another, in large part, by bearing with one another in love, and sometimes by speaking the truth to one another in love. The balance of those two is meant to help us practice vulnerability, and to model the kind of redemptive relationships we think should be normative in the kingdom of God.
