Our Mission and Values
Real people really loving God and others.
Love should characterize all our relationships.
This includes family, community, love-driven ministry, teamwork, and restoration. John 13:34-35; Romans 12:9-16; 1 Corinthians 13.
The application of God’s word changes lives.
This includes how we start our new life in Christ and live it out daily.
John 3:3; Romans 12:7; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 1:23-25.
Lost people matter to God and, therefore, must matter to the church.
This includes missions, relational evangelism, and evangelism as a process. Matthew 28:19-20; Luke 15; Acts 1:8; 1 Peter 3:9.
People mature through participation in various small group ministries.
This includes discipleship, shepherding, love, openness, and deep/genuine friendships. Mark 3:14; 6:30-31; Luke 6:12-13; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:10; Galatians 6:1-2; James 5:16, 19-20.
Participation in authentic worship is a necessary response to a loving God.
This includes prayer, commitment, corporate and private worship. John 4:21-25;
Acts 2:47; Colossians 3:16; Hebrews 10:24-25.
Truth for Today
The church should remain doctrinally pure while being culturally relevant.
This includes relating to our culture through our facility, schedules, worship style, and media. 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
The pursuit of full devotion to Christ and His cause should be normal for every believer. This includes discipleship, stewardship, humility, love, character development, spiritual disciplines, personal authenticity, and the pursuit of Kingdom goals. Mark 8:34-38; Luke 14:25-33; Philippians 2:1-11; Galatians 5:22-23; 2 Corinthians 8:7.
United in Service
As a unified and gifted community, we should serve each other and impact the world. This includes unity, servanthood, God-given gifts and passions, and ministry calling. Romans 12:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12 & 14; Ephesians 4:11-12; 1 Peter 4:10-11.
