We strive to be a Thriving people in a Thriving church in a Thriving city.

We believe that God has placed us at the heart of Tampa, FL to be Thriving individuals in a Thriving church in a Thriving city. This is accomplished by each person Digging In to the Word of God, Growing Up in the faith as an individual and part of the faith community, and Branching Out to make a real difference in Tampa and beyond.

Just as a tree is only as strong as its roots beneath the soil, a disciple can only THRIVE if he or she DIGS IN to God's Word in careful study as individuals and in groups.
