Hell's Kitchen
launching fall 2020

We strive to be a church of the gospel, of antiracism, of fearlessness, and of the neighborhood.

“Come, let us go … it may be that the Lord will work for us, for nothing can hinder the Lord from saving by many or by few.” — 1 Samuel 14:6

Our Vision

As Jesus Christ came and will come again to transform all of God’s Creation, we long to see and serve Hell’s Kitchen as his eyes and hands; honoring every life that sets foot in our neighborhood and striving to be his active, faithful ambassadors so that all may know and experience the life-changing redemption of Christ.

Our Mission

Hell’s Kitchen Community Church exists to love and serve our neighborhood as we seek to hold sacred the Image of God that is inherent in every resident, friend, and neighbor. We endeavor to be faithful and active witnesses to the revolutionary work of Christ in all areas of humanity; to walk as Jesus did, humbly love, and courageously serve, all for the glory of God.

Our Core Values

GOSPEL CENTERED

We strive to be a church of the gospel, the good news that Jesus Christ saves sinners and restores all things; that God loves his people so much he gave up his Son for them. We seek to live out the broad and deep implications of who Christ was, is, and promises to be by entering into his story of divine, cosmic, world-changing redemption.

ANTIRACIST

We strive to be an antiracist church as we actively stand in solidarity with all of God’s Image Bearers in Hell’s Kitchen, lifting up their stories as sacred, and stewarding our own privilege for the sake of the oppressed, the hurting, the grieving, and the lost. We endeavor to advocate for all people, be racially aware and responsive, share and give up our power, and be honest about our own racism and brokenness as well as the church’s broader complicity and silence in racist and other harmful structures over the course of America’s history. We seek to do all of this out of repentance, with complete faith in the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

SPIRIT-LED FEARLESSNESS

We strive to be a fearless church, led by the Holy Spirit. In all we do and say, we seek to boldly lead our community by example, in palpable action, whenever and wherever we are called. This boldness and courage propels us into meeting one another in the messy, difficult, heart-wrenching, tiring places of our lives as we also celebrate the many ways that the Spirit is at work. We will mess up, we will fail, and we will not have all the answers, but we will boast in our weaknesses and trust that the Spirit is leading through our prayerful and Word-guided discernment.

NEIGHBORHOOD

We strive to be a church in and for Hell’s Kitchen. We are completely and utterly committed to our neighborhood, thus our focus will always be loving and serving those who call Hell’s Kitchen home as well as those who actively love and support the community. By coming alongside and humbly learning from other churches and organizations, we long to see a powerful, transformative revival of gospel centrality in the life of Hell’s Kitchen.
