The Mission of STory Church Is To KNOW, live, and share the one true story
SHARE THE STORY
In our knowing and living the one true story, with our hearts, minds, and hands, we proclaim that story with our mouths. We bring the gospel to every tribe, tongue, and nation. This will take place through evangelism, missions, and church planting.
KNOW THE STORY
As a family and local church, we center our hearts and minds around the one true story. We encourage one another and grow together in this story. This will take place in our weekly gatherings, home groups, care groups, and training classes.
LIVE THE STORY
When we know the one true story with our hearts and minds, we then display it with our hands. This will take place as we serve one another and as we seek peace, justice, and mercy in our families, schools, jobs, and community.

THE VISION OF STORY CHURCH IS TO see a gospel movement take place across Inland Empire to the ends of the earth.
THE FALSE STORIES OF INLAND EMPIRE
The story of consumerism tells us that everything we need is at our fingertips. The story of affluence tells us that money leads to freedom and power. The story of progress tells us that our lives and world will be better with time and technology. The story of secularism tells us there is nothing beyond what we can see, taste, touch, hear, and smell. As much beauty and opportunity as there is, Inland Empire a place in desperate need of a better story, the one true story, the gospel.
THE ONE TRUE STORY OF THE GOSPEL
We believe the only story that can push back darkness and lead to freedom is the one true story of the gospel. This is the story of the self-emptying Christ who lived for others instead of self. This is the story of freedom that comes not through power but through weakness. This is the story of a generous God who has given of Himself to His people. This is the story of life that is found not in discovering self but in denying self. This is the story of the gospel, and we believe God has called us to tell that story.
