Our Core Values

Our pursuit of our mission and our vision as a community is informed by our core values - those things that are a part of our DNA as a church.  These values describe both who we are and who we are becoming as the Holy Spirit transforms us. 
  • We Live Life With Jesus as Our Source - We recognize the truth that without Jesus, we can accomplish nothing of any eternal significance (John 15:5).  Therefore, we are committed to living a lifestyle of abiding in Jesus.
  • We Announce the Good News - Jesus came, preaching the good news of the kingdom of God and demonstrating the truth of His message with His works (Mark 1:14-15, Acts 2:22).  We will do the same. 
  • We Intentionally Connect with God - We are people who value God's Presence and who recognize that we desperately Him.  So we are committed to pursuing Him, to being a people who worship, who pray, who listen and hear His voice, and who study His Word.
  • We Welcome the Broken - Jesus came to minister to broken people (Luke 4:18) - people who are poor, imprisoned, oppressed, blind...and we will do the same.  We welcome broken people.  We don't judge one another.  And we work to lift one another up and to help one another when one of us falls.
  • We Equip and Empower God's People - We are called to make disciples - to train people to discover and then to use their spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities, and then to release them to use those spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities.
  • We Wisely Use the Gifts with Which God Blesses Us - We believe that every good thing in our lives is a gift from God.  We purpose to use what He has given us to honor Him and to bless our world and one another.
  • We Obey When God Directs Us - John 14:21 tells us that we demonstrate the reality of our relationship with God by obeying His commands.  So we are committed to doing what He tells us to do.
  • We Hunger for the Word and Thirst for God's Spirit - We believe that the Bible is Truth revealed by God and we are committed to the authority of Scripture.  We also recognize the need for the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in our services.  We pursue and welcome both the Word and the Spirit.
  • We Gather to Grow, We Scatter to Serve - We come together to fellowship and to encourage one another.  We go out into our community to serve and to demonstrate God's love through our actions.
