1. WE VALUE THE WORD OF GOD.
IT'S OUR FOUNDATION FOR EVERYTHING
Our source of truth is the Word of God, without error and
totally trustworthy. It is the basis for all we believe and practice and is as
relevant for our culture today as it was to the culture it was written. Whenever
teaching occurs in the life of our church it is based on the Word of God.
2. WE VALUE PEOPLE.
SPIRITUALLY SEEKING, FOLLOWING, GROWING, LEADING OR MULTIPLYING.
We value people at all stages of their spiritual journey and our
desire is to challenge them to always be moving forward towards spiritual
maturity. We long to encourage those who are seeking to put their faith in Jesus. We long to encourage those who
are followers of Jesus to grow in
their relationship with Him. We long to encourage those who are growing in Jesus to serve Him. We long
to encourage those who are serving
Jesus to lead others and ultimately multiply themselves.
3. WE VALUE THE GREAT COMMISSION.
IT IS A MULTIPLYING MOVEMENT.
God has called us to make disciples
who make disciples who make disciples. We believe that we
must strive to multiply ourselves locally and that through effective
partnerships, we can be part of an exponential eternal impact worldwide.
4. WE VALUE WORSHIP.
IT SHOULD BE HONORING &
Our worship is designed to focus our attention towards God. He
is an audience of one and we gather together to all participate in giving God
the honor and praise He deserves. We strive to offer worship experiences that
edify, admonish and spiritually refresh.
5. WE VALUE MINISTRIES.
THEY SHOULD BE PURPOSEFUL &
It’s our objective that our ministries accomplish one of five
biblically mandated goals: lead people to faith in Jesus Christ, encourage
people to grow in their faith, equip people to serve, draw people to God’s
throne in worship, and demonstrate Christ’s love. While God’s message is
timeless, our methods will change as necessary to ensure that we remain
effective in impacting the people we are called to serve.
6. WE VALUE RELATIONSHIPS.
THEY SHOULD BE GENUINE &
We believe that the key to a thriving church is an atmosphere of
accepting relationships where people are building authentic friendships through
and in Jesus Christ. We believe that people need a place where they have a
sense of belonging, a place where they can feel safe, a place where they can
find forgiveness, a place where they can find support and encouragement.
7. WE VALUE OUR COMMUNITY.
IT IS A PLACE TO GET INVOLVED
AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
We value the communities in which we live and serve. We desire
to be actively involved in ways that will tangibly touch the lives of those who
live around us with the love of Christ. We value every opportunity given us to
make a difference in their lives personally and eternally.
8. WE VALUE GENEROSITY.
WE DON'T JUST GIVE WE ARE GENEROUS.
give of our time, treasure, and talents so that other’s lives can be enriched.
We believe as stewards of all God has graciously given that we must be known as
generous people. A culture of generous people creates a generous church that
glorifies a generous God.
9. WE VALUE PRAYER.
IT SHOULD BE PERSISTENT &
We believe that we cannot effectively accomplish all that God
has for us to do if we are not continually on our knees in prayer, individually
and corporately. We believe that our spiritual power and strength must come
from having spent concerted time in conversation with God before His throne of
grace. The effectiveness of the previous eight core values depends on our
commitment to the core value of prayer.
