The gospel creates a new people who live for Christ throughout the world.


Values are commitments that create, represent, and protect our culture. They guide us in accomplishing our mission of knowing Jesus. They not only represent what we value most but direct how we use our resources (time, money, opportunities). These values serve as a picture of what forms our community. 

Empowered Discipleship

The gospel creates new life.

The good news of God renews us, shapes us, and positions us as worshippers of God who live for Christ by the Spirt's power among our family, workplace, and community.

Portico culture empowers people to take ownership of their faith. 

Generous Hospitality

The gospel creates a family.

Warm, authentic relationships establish a foundation where a diverse community can thrive. It begins among the people of God and spreads to the city.

Portico culture empowers people to take ownership of their place in this gospel-family. 

Gospel Influence

The gospel creates influence.

Equipping every believer for the work of ministry is our response to God's call. All of God's people are called to mission and the mission begins wherever we are.

Portico culture empowers people to take ownership of their opportunities. 


Our distinctives define our focus as the gospel does its work in our particular community and spreads throughout the world.


We strive to be intentional in encouraging, serving,  and training people to have strong marriages.


We strive to be merciful people, transformed by the power of the Gospel. 

Unified Diversity

We believe God's glory is best revealed in a diverse community. We strive to build a unified family that is diverse ethnically, generationally, and socially. 

Future Generations

We seek to build up future generations by equipping parents and kids to live as disciples of Jesus. This includes children's ministry, student/college ministry, adoption and serving those who have unplanned pregnancies.
