About Kinney Avenue
As a generational church of Christ followers, we will cultivate disciples rooted in fulfilling the Great Commission commanded in God’s Word.
Our purpose is to be a wellspring of the life of Christ through His Spirit by fostering in one another an abiding devotion to God’s glory and the renown of His name. As a multigenerational family of believers, we are called to live out biblical relationship first with the Lord and then with one another, with people in our city and reaching to people around the world. We have a mission to proclaim the good news of Christ’s death and resurrection, to celebrate as people receive new life in Jesus, and to teach, encourage, and equip others to go and do the same.
We strive to engage meaningfully with our community about the gospel.
We strive to evangelize people to hear and respond to Christ as Savior and Lord.
We strive to encourage believers to trust and follow the Shepherd.
We strive to equip believers to know, love, and serve God wholeheartedly.
We strive to excel at all God gives us to do through His grace working mightily in us.
What We Believe.
We do our best to align our lives and community with what we understand to be Biblical essentials for Christian faith. These are the tried and true foundations recognized hundreds of years ago and followed by millions of people. We find roots in the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed.
There are a few things we understand, but a lot that we don’t. We leave space for honest conversation and even disagreement about non-essentials (i.e. gender roles, how to worship, use of spiritual gifts, politics, whether Jesus drank wine, predestination, election, end times, the length of Jesus’ hair, etc.) We approach non-essentials with humble, thoughtful and prayerful Biblical interpretation.
In all things we attempt to show love, acceptance and forgiveness. Especially when we disagree.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
