Partnering to nurture a flourishing and thriving Maryvale

The Church

...is the agency called by God to set the prisoner free and surround them with a church family and walk alongside them till they are transformed into healthy individuals who partner with others in restoring the city. Guilt, shame and rejection can be replaced by a deep assurance of God’s love and forgiveness. Fears are transformed to courageous faith; anxiety to peace; depression to joy; anger to patience; bitterness to forgiveness; complacency to passion; hopelessness to zeal; addictions to freedom and growth; insecurity to fruitful service in the church and community.

Our Vision

...is to advance Maryvale – to restore health to Maryvale by the spiritual transformation of individuals who are embraced and nurtured in a loving church family community who then partner with private, government, and social agencies to elevate our neighbors and neighborhoods damaged by societal wrongdoing. We want our neighbors to flourish through a revival of the quality of life that begins now and lasts for eternity. This revival will be characterized by true prosperity that comes from personal responsibility, self-fulfillment, meaning, optimism, and the freedom to unleash their creative talents for the flourishing of life.

We Believe

  • It is God’s will that all are saved and grow to freedom as disciples of Christ
  • Our task is to teach others to obey everything that Christ taught
  • The environment of a nurturing Christian family community help free people to thrive
  • Transformed individuals heal their families and community
