Loving God. Loving people. Making disciples.
Our goal is that, as a body of believers, we live this mission on a daily basis. Christ has called us to go and make disciples. He has called us to love those around us. Our values give us practical application to achieve that calling. Our values are: Truth, Community, Servanthood, Missional Living,and Generosity.
OUR CORE VALUES
We believe in the complete truth of God's Word. The Scriptures are inspired by God and infallible - the only absolute truth to build a life on. We believe in the sufficiency of Scripture. It drives our message, our teaching, and our personal study.
Truth is found in Jesus Christ. He alone is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” All parts of Scripture point us to Him.
(John 8:32; John 14:6; 2 Timothy 4:12; Hebrews 4:12)
We believe in relationships. We find encouragement, fellowship, and accountability in the community of the church. Together we desire and learn to pattern our lives after Christ. By spending time and living our lives together in small group Bible study, in home fellowships, in coffee shops and city streets, we build community and serve others.
(Romans 5:1-2; Hebrews 10:25; Ephesians 4:11-16)
We serve others. Jesus exemplified service by washing the feet of His disciples. In the same spirit we maximize our God-given abilities to serve others as Christ has served us. (Matthew 20:28; Luke 22:26-27; 2 Corinthians 13:4; John 13; Philippians 2:1-8)
Jesus commanded us to embrace the world with His love and His gospel. Through missional living we take this love with the message of the gospel to the entire world. God has strategically and purposefully placed us where we are, that we might make Him known to the world. We are called to be missionaries at home and abroad.
Missional living is displayed through outreach, local, national, and international mission projects, through our giving to support missions, and by daily living out God's truth in our lives for the world to see.
(2 Corinthians 5:20; Luke 19:10; Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 5:16; Acts 1:8)
Jesus lived a sacrificial life. Following His example, we commit to sharing all of our resources to further the kingdom of God in this world. As stewards of time, talent, finances, truth, and relationships, our lives are to be spent for the glory of God, in service to others.
We live sacrificially. Rather than following the selfish nature of the culture at large, we believe lives lived sacrificially will demonstrate the sincerity and power of our faith.
