10Missions and Outreach – We raise up men and women to serve as missionaries wherever God leads them, be it here at home or in faraway lands.
Family Relationships – We offer ministries for the entire family! All of our ministries and activities for infants through high school are safe and rooted in relationships, all in conjunction with parents. We partner with families to provide a biblical foundation for children to grow in their relationships with God!
Authentic Relationships – The Christian life is about intimacy with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and honesty with one another.
Development of Disciples – This includes nurturing believers in Christ-likeness and Spirit-fullness. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
Biblical Accuracy – The unchanging message is communicated in creative and compelling ways to serve seekers and build believers. This includes the Word of God as our source of truth and hope, the foundation for all preaching and teaching, practical application, and personal and relational ethics. “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Culture of Acceptance – All people are accepted AS IS because that’s the way God accepts us. God’s grace takes root and changes hearts.
Balance We protect the health and unity of our church by balancing our purposes and biblical teachings.
Commitment to Prayer – This includes the belief that as we intimately commune with God, He answers our prayers and His power is revealed. “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective”. (James 5:16)
Team Ministry – This includes spiritual gift development, training, equipping, teamwork and involving every member in ministry. “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others.” (1 Peter 4:10)
Sharing Christ with the Unchurched – This includes the Great Commission, outreach to non-Christians and unchurched Christians, a passion for the lost, relational evangelism, cultural relevance and sensitivity. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
Safe Environment – We will create a climate of safety so that people feel secure physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
