Founded in the mid-1980s by Pastor Brian Eastman after tutelage by Sr. Marie Pepper, the church has this mission statement:
To lift up the world one person at a time, especially those who are un-served, underserved, or overlooked by traditional churches and ministries
If you are worried about theology: To quote one of our ministers,
The Divine is so huge and complex that no one
person can hope to understand more than a glimpse through a keyhole. So how can I tell you that what I see is right and yours is wrong? But,
if you tell me what you have experienced and seen, and I tell you what I have experienced and seen … and we both end up wiser!
