Our Core Values

Eight core values drive our ministry: Biblical teaching, God-honoring worship, authentic community, lost people, a grace-orientation to life, a mobilized congregation, and creativity and innovation.

  • Our first value is biblical preaching and teaching. We strive to preach and teach God’s Word with integrity and authority so that seekers find Christ and believers mature in Him.
    “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (Timothy 3:16).
  • Our second value is God-honoring worship. We desire to acknowledge God’s supreme value and worth in our personal lives and in the corporate, contemporary worship of our church.
    “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:1-2).
  • Our third value is authentic community. We ask all our people to commit to and fully participate in biblically functioning small groups.
    “All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts” (Acts 2:44-46).
  • Our fourth value is lost people. We value un-churched, lost people and will use every available Christ-honoring means to pursue, win, and mature them.
    “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost” (Luke 19:10).
  • Our fifth value is a grace-orientation to life and ministry. We encourage our people to live and serve Christ from hearts of love and gratitude rather than guilt, shame, and condemnation.
    “For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14).
  • Our sixth value is a mobilized congregation. We desire to equip all our uniquely designed and gifted people to effectively and enthusiastically accomplish the work of the ministry.
    “It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:11-13).
  • Our seventh value is creativity and innovation. We will constantly evaluate our forms and methods, seeking cultural relevance and maximum ministry effectiveness for Christ.
    “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Colossians 3:17).
  • Finally, we value excellence. Since God gave God’s best; namely, the Savior, we seek to honor God by maintaining a high standard of excellence in all our ministries.
    “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving (Colossians 3:23-24).
