We minister to more than 30,000 people in weekly attendance with campuses across the state of Alabama. Our story begins with the dream of planting a church with a simple goal: help people connect with God in a church without letting structures and programs get in the way.

We focus on relevant teaching, heartfelt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer and compassionate care for others. Our purpose is to reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully devoted followers of Christ. We filter every idea, program, and budget request through this vision. We want to see people become fully-devoted followers of Christ.
