What could help us be different? We think it comes down to three distinct emphases or core values... 

Accepted: we've been loved in Christ - what we call a theology of grace. It is a beautiful thing to be loved! Getting a grasp on how we are loved, despite how deeply flawed we are, requires doing a little thinking. So we do questions...in order to become a learning community.  

Connected: folks not only need to learn how they're "Accepted" we need to experience that kind of grace via relationships. So we do emotion...in order to learn to love better.

Sent: we are sent to love others in north Atlanta. Loving others requires initiative and action. So we do ethics...not the moralistic kind...but personal growth and leadership development to cultivate leaders sent to love.
