Because Christ has died, we will communally make disciples who have experienced the love and forgiveness of God.
CREATE SACRED SPACE
Because Christ has risen, we will worship him, and create sacred space in our lives, in our community, and in the world.
PARTICIPATE IN ACTS OF MERCY
Because Christ will come again, we will push forward his Kingdom in the world, in anticipation of his return, through acts of mercy.
Zoe Community is an urban Church Type Mission in the Church of the Nazarene. At Zoe we strive to Make Disciples, Create Sacred Space, and Participate In Acts of Mercy. We are strongly Wesleyan, and lean more towards the Anglican roots of our denomination. As such, when you come to a worship service at Zoe you will find it to be quite "high church," but not too formal. All are welcome at Zoe.
The word "Zoe" is an English pronunciation of a Greek word found in the New Testament. While language is always hard to translate, the simple definition of Zoe is: eternal, spiritual life. Not just a life in the future, but it is the life God wants us to have now. At Zoe we are about exploring that life together.
