Welcome To Heartbeat!
We are an affirming, Spirit-filled Christian fellowship that embraces a neo-reformation theology, which holds a dimensionalist God concept and an organic, relational church construct.
Heartbeat exists as a church to:
Heartbeat exists as a church to:
*Embody the true nature of the Divine in the world
* Provide a safe space for learning, healing, growing, collaboration and worship
*Equip people as witnesses, ministers, and givers
*Encourage people to live fully and authentically into the God-given beauty of their truth in the world
*Bring communion and connection to the Body of Christ
*Demonstrate God’s love by every possible means
*Model radical dependence on the Holy Spirit
WE ARE SANCTUARY! We must not be silent when fellow human beings are in hiding, under threat of imprisonment and death, being brutalized by police for peaceful protest or even just for existing, and being denied the right to exist on equal footing in peace in our society. We must not rest until there is equity. The Gospel message is equity, for GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS. There is no stratification, no delineation of super-ordinate or subordinate, primitive or civilized, male, female, inter-sexed or trans, gay or straight, black, white, yellow, red, or brown, but we all together reflect the kaleidoscopic reality of the Divine image...let God's love shine brightly in our social action. SPEAK UP!

Please pray for the Love Your Neighbor program, and our dear brother, Pastor Rao, and his team who weekly provide food, clothing and the Gospel to impoverished and marginalized people in India.
Please lift up the growing ministry of Mary Anne Minas and Arise Jesus Worship and Ministry Center in the Philippines. Pastor Minas and her team are reaching out to the poor, planting house churches in undeveloped areas and bringing the Gospel to the streets. Remarkable!
When the MARGINALIZED MAJORITY rises up in UNITY, then oppression will meet a long awaited end.
Make it so, make it so! Let every fetter fall to the dust...everything of pride or hate, and everything of lust. Let us come together in unity, in the bond of peace!
The transformational power of the Gospel is the Love of God through Jesus Christ and WE are Christ manifest to the world!
