God’s heart is for all people in all nations to know Him and be in relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. As we learn more about God’s heart, we desire to glorify God with our lives, like Christ, as we grow in obedience to make His salvation known throughout the world. We will do this through meeting the needs of the poor and destitute, acts of love and compassion, and proclaiming the gospel locally and globally. And your gifts have made this a reality!

Christ announced His ministry by proclaiming His heart to bring good news to the poor, liberty to the blind, sight to the captives, and the Lord’s favor. This call to serve the poor is made clearer by many of His teachings, the way He lived His life among the poor, and the way His disciples and church lived out these commands. Our vision is that H2O Church would build real, gospel-centered relationships with the poor, needy, and ostracized – visiting, praying, and meeting their needs on a weekly basis. We want to see the people of our church expand their view of our campus, our city, Christ’s heart, and the life of a devoted disciple. And your giving has helped us in accomplishing this vision!
