Since beginning this journey to launch PPCC church with a dedicated team, certain phrases and words have stood out that describe our culture, shape our DNA, and focus our movement. In some ways, these phrases have become true of who we are becoming as a community and in essence are becoming the values for our church.
These are not the values that we’ve declared for ourselves, but the values that we sense that God continues to declare over us. Through situations, experiences, and lessons-learned, God has brought these phrases to the forefront within the life of PPCC. These are the things God has sealed in our minds, shaped into our hearts, and inspired us toward, and they’re the things for which we continue to reach as we follow God’s Spirit. No matter where He leads us, these are markers of who we are called to be along the way.
What We Believe
We believe that Jesus was God born into this world, lived a life that perfectly imaged His father in heaven, was killed on a wooden cross, and resurrected on the third day. The church has been activated and empowered by His spirit with the task of living out this message of love to people we do life with. We are closely aligned with the The Lausanne Covenant.

Acts 2:42 says,
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
This model and strategy of ministry is not rocket science, nor does it take a seminary degree… it is simple. We kick it together. We eat food and laugh together. We talk about family, Jesus, relationships, and even how good the waves were yesterday. We pray for each other when things are not going the way we would have hoped – and celebrate the good times that we have together.
We believe that following Jesus means loving the people He has put in our lives. This is not always easy, but it is straight forward and simple enough to understand.
We also gather together on Sunday evenings to celebrate Jesus’ life, fellowship, eat food, pray, and come expecting God to do something powerful.
