OUR VALUES

WORSHIP

We hope to not only worship God through song, but in everything that we do. We believe that the way we live, and the way we treat others, brings God glory and honor.

RELATIONSHIP

We value relationships with one another, and with God. Having a real relationship with Jesus is at the center of everything we do, and we highly value His greatest commandment: to love Him and love one another.

COMMUNITY

Life is meant to be lived in community. We desire to live life together, to carry one another’s burdens, to celebrate together, and to grieve along side one another.

JUSTICE

We believe that God deeply cares for the marginalized, the mistreated, and the most vulnerable. We want to not only speak out against injustice but to take active steps to make change.

MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe the activity of the Holy Spirit is vital for us in our every day lives. We regularly and consistently listen to the prompts of the Spirit, and believe in its power to direct, convict, heal and empower us.

GROWTH

We value both Personal and Spiritual Growth. We believe God has called each one of us to follow Him just the way we are, but He is constantly inviting us to grow personally and spiritually. 

WORD OF GOD

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the story of the one true God interacting with His creation that He dearly loves. We value its power to instruct us and challenge us. 

MISSION

We believe that God loves people more than they could possibly know, and that He is on a mission to reconcile the world back to Himself. He has called us to join in this mission, both locally and globally.

AUTHENTICITY

Our desire is that in all we do there would be vulnerability and integrity; that we wouldn’t be concentrated on power or selfish ambitions. Our goal is that we would not be hypocrites who live one way at church and another way at home.

DIVERSITY

We believe that God made all people and is calling all people to be a part of his family. We believe that Jesus came to break down the dividing walls of hostility. We desire to be a place where all feel welcomed, safe, and celebrated for who they are.

GENEROSITY

We desire to be generous with everything God has blessed us with; our time, our talents and our possessions. We hope to be both personally and collectively generous to one another, and to the world around us.

SERVICE

and

HUMILITY

We believe the greatest expression of love is to serve. We hope to strive not for power or selfish ambition, but to meet the needs of those around us and to humbly obey the Lord in what He has called us to do.
