OUR DNA

We are a faith family on a rescue mission, working as a team sharing Christ, training believers, and changing our world.

1 | WE ARE FAMILY.
TCAL is not just a place where you believe, it’s a place where you belong. From a family of one to a family of twenty-one, we are here to support, honor, and love you in every stage. We are a faith family and we believe in your family.

 

2 | WE AREN’T AFRAID TO HAVE FUN!
We are serious about our faith but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We love to laugh, to celebrate, to create a safe, inviting place for you to be yourself. We believe when people are having fun, they have the greatest chance to learn and grow.

 

3 | WE CELEBRATE UNITY IN DIVERSITY.
A church where every age, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic status is not only welcome but also necessary. We are a multi-ethnic church in a multi-ethnic world. We are better together.

 

4 | WE ARE RADICALLY GENEROUS.
God is a good, generous, loving Father and we look most like Him when we give. We believe in giving counter-culturally, with radical generosity, of our time, talent, treasure, trials, touch, and testimony.

 

5 | WE ACTIVELY PURSUE HEALTH IN LIFE AND RELATIONSHIPS.
Not everything that’s growing is healthy. We pursue health in every facet of life. Healthy relationships are vital to our health. We honor each other, refuse to gossip, practice healthy reconciliation, and enjoy life as a faith family.

 

6 | WE LIVE IN THE TENSION OF GRACE AND TRUTH.
We display love and acceptance with the truth that transforms. Because truth without grace condemns while grace without truth simply condones. Grace says you are loved and accepted right where you are but Love requires Truth so you don’t get left there.

 

7 | WE’RE ADDICTED TO LIFE CHANGE.
We know Jesus changes everything. And we are sold out to how drastically He can transform your life and fill you with the Hope it takes to get there. This is why TCAL is a church of next steps.
We grow God’s people by Becoming Fully Developing Followers of Christ who:

 

Worship God
Live by God’s Word
Contribute to God’s Work
Walk with God’s People
Impact God’s World
