Vision

For the city. For the campus. For the glory of Christ.

A GOSPEL-FUELED CHURCH

The greatest news in the world is not what we have done for God, but what God has done for us in Christ. This Good News should shape and empower every aspect of life.

A GATHERED CHURCH

We place a high value on gathering as a church body to hear from God as the Bible is taught and to respond to God with worship and praise.

A CHURCH FAMILY

Beyond our weekend gatherings, we are faithful to pursue accountable relationships, to develop intentional friendships and live out the “one anothers” of scripture. Interested in joining a connection group? Check out our Launch Point class to get connected!

AN OUTWARD-FACING CHURCH

We want others to know Christ, so we share the love of Jesus as we speak the Gospel and show the love of Jesus as we live for the good of our neighbor.

A NEXT-GENERATION CHURCH

We believe the university is the most strategic mission field in the world, so we prioritize reaching students through our college ministry, The Salt Company.

A SENDING CHURCH

We believe that our measure of success is not simply our seating capacity, but our sending capacity. As we strive to be a vibrant Gospel church in Ames, we want to fuel a multiplying Gospel movement through our church-planting initiative, The Salt Network.
