Act Justly. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.
Six:Eight is derived from chapter 6, verse 8 of the bible's Old Testament book of Micah which says, "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
As a church, we strive to emulate this sentiment in all ways. We want to be obedient to Jesus, follow Him and love our neighbors well. We do this as a church in partnership with our local community. If after exploring our site you have further questions, please contact us - we’d love to hear from you.
Have open doors - Are places of growth - Are places to do kingdom
We offer various opportunities for Community Groups. Prison Fellowship takes some training to be involved. This year we’ve consolidated all other groups together for one all-church gathering on Wednesdays as we come out of the pandemic shutdown. In the new year this group will switch to early evening Sundays, since on Wednesday nights we will be hosting Alpha. A time where we eat, study & pray together. Childcare is provided.

Many are disillusioned with organized religion having experienced the devastation of unchecked power in corrupt religious leaders. Flowery stories are told, but then the true dark underbelly of ‘church’ is revealed. In the book of John, chapter 3 verses 1-21, Nicodemus probably felt the same about his religious experience coming to Jesus one evening. He found him to be different. Jesus was real, powerful & challenging. As a community we seek to listen well to Jesus as Nicodemus did that evening. We're open about our brokenness. We don’t hide behind a façade of having all the right answers. We don’t engage in 'Us vs. Them' arguments. We make mistakes, for sure, but we try to walk this journey of faith with Jesus as best we can.
Have you wondered about life? Why, even amidst the chaos, there’s something profoundly beautiful to be found? Are you grasping for hope, wondering if there’s any to be found? There’s a story of an Ethiopian who was reading the book of Isaiah found in the book of Acts chapter 8 verses 26-40. A follower of Jesus asked if he understood what he was reading. The Ethiopian’s reply was that he wanted to, but how can he without help. The journey of faith is best done in community. Divorced from others we hobble along not fully understanding. As a community we satiate that thirst together, wrestling with questions collectively. We don’t have all the answers, but we journey towards Jesus together.
There’s a story found in the book of Acts chapter 17 verses 16-34 where the Apostle Paul meets a group of devout people in his travels. Like him, they were on a journey of faith. In the center of town he noticed a sculpture dedicated to ‘an unknown god’. Paul shared about his journey with Jesus. The unknown became known, as they heard the story of a god who lovingly pursues people in grace. Jesus does not embody the false image of an angry god bent on punishment. The faith community should reflect the peace of God, which is a foretaste of heaven. However imperfect & falteringly we stumble along with him, he is patient & full of grace towards us.
Questions are good. Thomas had them, and Jesus was not threatened by them. His story is found in the book of John chapter 20 verses 24-31. In the painting by Caravaggio titled ‘Doubting Thomas’, we see Jesus taking the hand of Thomas & leading the questioning process. He invites sincere questions from those that want to know him. We invite them as well. Even the most learned have them: deep questions, simple questions, frightening questions. None are threatening. Thomas found his answers in relationship with Jesus & in the faith community.
