OUR VALUES – As a church we value these things in pursuing our mission:
God has spoken to us through the Bible and we recognize it as the final authority for our lives. We strive to teach God’s word with integrity and authority so those who seek Christ will follow Him, and those who follow Him will mature in their faith.
Authority of Christ
We recognize Jesus Christ as the head of the church and submit ourselves and all that we do to His authority and will.
Intimacy with God
God pursues and desires an intimate relationship with each of us.
We desire to acknowledge God’s supreme worth and power in our personal and corporate worship.
God works best through those who are united in purpose and practice. We strive to relate to each other with love, honor and respect.
God’s message of forgiveness and restoration is for all people; regardless of ethnicity or socio-economic class.
God’s message of forgiveness through Christ is most effectively expressed in the context of personal relationships.
Accountability, belonging, care and spiritual growth happen best in small groups. We encourage and expect our people to support and participate in biblically functioning small groups for the purpose of caring for each other and their community.
We value the importance of building strong families as one of God’s tools to grow His kingdom.
God provides uniquely designed and gifted people to accomplish His work in the church.
Discipleship is leading others to follow Christ in the way they think, act and serve.
We depend on private and corporate prayer in conceiving, planning and implementing all ministries and activities.
