Pastor David Wise says, "We believe God wants to challenge and encourage us about our church motto. Human beings are naturally alienated from God and from other human beings, however God has made it possible for us to be both reconciled to Him and to other people. In a world full of alienation this is amazing. God wants us to be a demonstration of a new community where people are reconciled across racial, class, gender and all other boundaries. And you can be a part of this."
