Who We Are
Our mission is to help others fulfill their unique purpose.
is to create irresistible environments that allow the unchurched (those who have never been to church before) and the dechurched (those who have been to church and decided not to go back) to take a second look at Christ and His church. Our Sunday morning environments are casual, engaging, fun, and friendly, and we allow people a safe place to come and investigate Jesus and His Word.
What We Believe About the Scriptures… We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.
About God… We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.
About Humanity… We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
About Salvation… We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
About the Christian Life… We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church… We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.

We believe that just like Jesus, the local church should be irresistible. People should want to wake up on Sunday morning and go to church. Our desire is to be people’s number one option on Sunday morning, first because of what we do and ultimately because of what we believe. During our lifetime, our own communities have become a mission field. 89% of people in Lafayette don’t go to church anywhere on a regular basis— that’s a lot people. We wanted to create a place where people who don’t go to church realize that church can be fun and that God isn’t mad at them.
This vision took shape in 2010 when Pastors Billy and Mandy Holden moved to Lafayette Indiana to plant a church for people who flat out do not go to church. Innovation was launched out of a living room in 2011. We had our first church service online with a small group that met in the Holdens house. A year later, we realized that because of our growth potential we could no longer call our home our church. So in 2012 we were given a great opportunity with Foursquare to take over and existing church building on the south side of Lafayette Indiana. Our commitment to you is that our focus will always be God’s focus “To seek and to save those who are far from God.” Not programs or buildings or denominations or other silly stuff… it’s all about connecting people to God!
