God is Good. You are Good. Go do Good.

For some people, church is where you go to pack your spiritual bags and prepare for a getaway. For some, church is a fortress, a protection against the world. Either way, a lot of folks get left out.

But it wasn't always that way.

Many ministries measure success by foot traffic and brand recognition. Those are good metrics for fast food, but they might not apply to matters of the heart. They don't even guarantee a decent meal.

We believe there's an alternative. We're working to challenge assumptions about what church is, uncover what it always was, and explore the potential of what it might be.

Church can be about engagement instead of escape. It can be about celebration instead of judgement. We are here to bring timeless Truth to bear on real life, right here and now. We hope you'll join us.

Welcome to Water and Stone.

we Believe

God is Good

Our foundational teaching is found in Mark 12:29: "The Lord our God, the Lord is one." We believe that the one and only presence and power in the universe, and at work in our lives, is God. We believe that when Jesus Christ called God "Our Father" (Matthew 6:9), He meant it. We are all in this together.  

No exceptions. No intermediaries. Just God.


You are Good

If God is Good, and God is All, being made in God's Image and Likeness means something. We believe that the Truth about each of us is Love, that the real identity of every person is "Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27). We all have growing to do and lessons to learn, but that can only truly happen when we know who we are as children of God.  

No judgement. No blame. Just love.


Go do Good

Being the light of the world means we have to shine. We believe that we serve God by taking care of God's children. If you really have love in your heart, you have to do something about it. As the Bible says, "faith without works is dead" (James 2:17).

No holding back. No borders. Just service.
