Core Values

 
 

Living in Christ

We declare Christ to be supreme and the only Hope of the world (Colossians 1:13-29; Hebrews 1:3). And---together in Christ---we will live worshipfully in intimacy with Him, imitation of Him, and influence for Him (Matthew 5:13-16; 28:18-20; John 1:14; 20:21; 1 Corinthians 12:27; Galatians 5:6).

Reaching Out

We will take Christ's message of grace to the lost and disconnected people in our community and to those parts of the world where the local church is weak or nonexistent, and we will use every available Christ-honoring means to pursue, reach and mature them (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Luke 15; 19:10; 1 Corinthians 9:22).

Teaching God's Word

We will teach God's Word with integrity, creativity, and authority so that those without God are drawn to Christ, and believers progressively mature in Him (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 4:2; Romans 12:1-2).

Transforming Lives

We will intentionally embrace the Christ-centered, Spirit-driven, community-oriented process of transformation into the image of Christ (Galatians 4:19; Ephesians 4:11-16; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 2 Peter 3:18).

Practicing Community

We commit to experiencing Spirit-directed life change in the context of loving, service-rich, authentic relationships and small groups (Acts 2:42-47; Mark 12:31; Matthew 7:12; Philippians 2:4; Romans 12:4-5, 10).
