Saying “My Church Sucks!”  is a proclamation that we are a drawing power that sucks people into the life of Christ and the liberty of His Church.

Saying, “My Church Sucks” is both a profession of who we are, and a confession of hope for what we must become.

Saying, “My Church Sucks” is the best thing I can say about my church and it is the dream I have for every church!
