“A Fresh Expression is a form of church for our changing culture established primarily for the benefit of people who are not yet members of any church.”

Four Missional Values of Fresh Expressions

Fresh Expressions are created when Christians seek out simple ways to love those around them, create space for community to grow, and expand their definition of what the church can be.

Every Fresh Expression of church is unique. They are found in coffee shops, tattoo parlors, homes, parks, beaches, online spaces, and more. Yet, there are four core missional values that define every Fresh Expression:

INCLUSIVE

A manifestation of God’s outreaching love

ACCESSIBLE

Culturally appropriate, close, and contextual

TRANSFORMATIVE

Empowering spiritual growth and equipping for works of love

CONNECTIONAL

Existing in a relationship with each other and the wider church
