We read the gospels to treasure Jesus
We listen for the Spirit to be Spirit-led
We bless others to be generous
We eat with others to be hospitable
We share God-spottings to be witnesses
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.”
–Acts 2:42 (ESV)
“Arrange your days so that you experience total contentment, joy, and confidence in your everyday life with God.”
We believe that God wants to have a personal and dynamic relationship with us all. Getting together on weekends is only a small part of how we grow spiritually.
Jesus commands everyone to repent, believe, and be baptized. In the early church, entire households of all ages were baptized, so we offer infant baptism for believing parents seeking to raise their child(ren) in the faith, and also baptism for people of all ages who have not yet been baptized.
Practicing the habits of a healthy disciple will empower you to grow in your faith. We encourage everyone to pray and read the Bible every day, to share generously, and to join together in worship every Sunday.
Gathering with others around food and the Word to learn, grow, and connect with each other in three trimesters: fall, winter, and spring.
Read the gospels, listen in prayer, bless others, eat with others, record God-spottings, and repeat!

God gave Victory Lutheran Church (LCMC) in Mesa a vision and a heart to bless a people and an area they were not reaching, so they pooled resources and purchased a campus down the street and hired a staff to inspire, connect, equip, and pioneer amidst the adjacent neighborhood, families, and schools.
WHY START ANOTHER CHURCH?
New churches are the most effective form of evangelism. New churches gain 70% of their members from people who are not attending any church body, while established churches gain over 90% of their new members from transfer.
Jesus says, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” In Maricopa County there are 2,325,637 people without a church home. As many older churches are dwindling and closing, Mesa will need new churches that share a clear and fresh presentation of the gospel.
