About Us

Our Values

Inclusive… All too often, people have been subject to discrimination, prejudice, and oppression by others claiming to speak for God or with the Bible.  Regardless of age, race, religious background, gender identity or sexual orientation, all are welcome to join and participate fully in the life and practices of the community.  This inclusivity is often described as being “open & affirming.”

Transformative… Zeteo desires to be a community for people experiencing the personal transformation that comes with encountering God’s inclusive love that inspires and transforms people, neighborhoods, our city and ultimately, our world.

Visionary… Many historians, philosophers and theologians believe the next great transformation in Christianity is taking place now.  Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence, believes that many churches are becoming revitalized by adopting new methods and returning to Jesus’ basic message of loving God and people.  Zeteo is a gathering committed to exploring Christianity in the post-modern culture and context by re-envisioning the spiritual practices used throughout Christian history and incorporating aspects of popular culture that often times unknowingly illustrate the redemptive story of God’s love.
