GRACE-FILLED TRUTH (Scripture)
We value Scripture. We teach and live on its foundation and under its authority. Following the example of Christ, we see the value of both the grace and truth it demonstrates.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; John 1:14; Hebrews 4:12
EMPOWERED HOMES (Family)
We value family as the first institution designed by God for spiritual formation, relationships, and reflecting His image. We seek to ensure that every element of church life supports and equips that essential role.
Genesis 2:24; Deuteronomy 6:4-7; Psalm 78:1-8; Ephesians 5:2-33; Ephesians 6:1-4; Luke 2:52; Proverbs 31:10-12, 28-31
SPIRIT-LED COMMUNITY (Community / Prayer)
We value authentic community that extends out of our personal relationship wuth Jesus, and the Spirit-led life to which we are called. We realize that true community happens naturally when we are fully, mutually, dependent on the Lord.
Bearing one another’s burdens, edification, mutual intercession, and corporate worship are the tools God uses to connect our hearts. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the most foundational purpose for our worship is that God is worthy to be sought by His people.
Acts 2:1; Galatians 6:2; 1 Peter 3:7; Hebrews 10:24-25; James 1:5-8; Luke 6:12-13; Proverbs 11:14; Exodus 33:15; John 15:5
COLLECTIVE LEGACY (Generations)
We embrace and value the role of all generations, and God’s high calling to connect them. We value the role that the collective Church body plays in complementing family life.
Because not all members are a part of a Christ-centered home, we see the opportunities the Church has to support these individuals — serving as extended family.
We not only value the impact of generational connection today, but likewise see the significance of the legacy we will leave to generations long after we are gone.
Psalm 78:1-7; Titus 2:1-7; 1 Timothy 5:3-8; Luke 2:41-51; 2 Timothy 1:5
SELFLESS INFLUENCE (Service)
We value the joy of “going beyond,” cultivating a spirit of generosity and service that benefits the Kingdom rather than our own agendas. In the context of church life, we acknowledge that every member has been uniquely gifted to serve the Body, and we value opportunities to discover and use those gifts to serve others.
We believe that the scope of this high calling begins in our homes and extends to the ends of the earth.
Following Christ’s example, we endeavor to meet physical needs as a gateway to fulfilling the deepest needs only the Gospel can satisfy.
