We value the Bible as the very written words of God, the final authority for our lives, sufficient to show us who He is and who we are to be (2 Tim. 3:16-17). Therefore, we are passionate about knowing it, teaching it, studying it, and living by it, as it guides us into a closer relationship with God Himself.
We value the family as the first human institution, designed by God to reflect His redeeming love for His children and Christ’s sacrifice for His bride, the Church (Eph. 5:22-6:4). Therefore, we are dedicated to building generations of families centered in the Gospel, in which marriages thrive and parents are the primary disciplers of their children.
We value the ministry service of our people, believing that the body of Christ is built up to maturity when we all work together, using our God-given gifts (Eph. 4:11-16). Therefore, we are committed to encouraging, exhorting and equipping each person to actively serve God and one another, both inside and outside the church walls, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
We aspire to be a church characterized by vibrant, Christ-centered fellowship, gladly sharing our time, possessions, hearts, and lives with one another as the earliest Christians did (Acts 2:42-45). Therefore we will set aside pretension, pride, and self-sufficiency and become transparent, humble, and mutually dependent upon one another, caring for and loving each other as members of one family (Rom. 12:10-13).
We aspire to be a church that worships God in spirit and in truth for Who He is and what He has done (John 4:23-24). Therefore, we will humbly, reverently, and joyfully worship God in every area of life, offering our hearts, minds, gifts, time, and service in obedience to Him (Rom. 12:1)
We aspire to be a church that actively evangelizes the lost in obedience to Christ’s command, and in gratitude for God’s gracious love and forgiveness of sins through Christ’s death and resurrection (2 Cor. 5:18-21). Therefore, we will go into our communities as humble representatives of Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit, loving others by sharing the hope we have in Him.
