Mission Statement:

BASIC is a College-Age Worship community that exists to UNITE people in the name of JESUS and INVITE them to join in the work that He is doing to BLESS a broken world. All are WELCOME.



“Go… to the place I will show you… I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you… and you will be a blessing (Genesis 12). From the beginning, God’s call for His people has been to be a blessing to the world. He blesses us as we go and we pass along this blessing making Him known and inviting others to join us as His blessed children.

B - Begin with Prayer – ask God how He wants us to bless our neighbors.
L - Listen – to others and to God in prayer and in Scripture.
E - Eat – with others and get to know them. Great things happen around food.
S - Serve – as you listen and eat you will hear their needs and can meet them.
S - Story – hearing their story allows you to know how to share God’s story with them.


Authentic Relationships - We lead with relationships
Serving Others - We grow when we serve
Leadership Development - We learn as we lead
Compelling Worship - Worship isn't just music. It's our whole life.
