Our church... is a non-denominational multi-site church with four St. Louis-area campuses where we gather each weekend to study this ancient story found in Scripture that is still transforming lives today.

We blend teaching and worship with art and technology to create a service where you can experience the message of Jesus in practical and life-changing ways.
