essential values

Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing:

We desire to be known for what we are for, not what we are against.  Walking in a balance of grace and truth leads us to know Jesus, grow in Jesus, love like Jesus,

and tell others about Jesus.

Matthew 28:19-20

 

Promote unity in the body of Christ:

Our church is made up of unique and diverse individuals. The Holy Spirit, along with Scripture, leads us in our unity and diversity.  Every member of the body works together as part of the team that God has designed to serve Him.

Ephesians 4:1-6

 

A home for the hurting:

Your hurt will not surprise us, and your healing is important to us. As our faith in Christ grows, God will provide healing for the hurting through the body.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5

 

Nobody should out-community the church:

Life was meant to be lived together. We help people connect to each other through groups, serving our local community, and growing deep relationships.

 

Acts 2:44-47

 

Family health is worth the investment:

Individuals, marriages, children, and youth are significant parts of the church.  We actively support growth in each of these relationships.

 

Ephesians 5:28-30; 6:1-4

 

We are spiritual contributors, not spiritual consumers:

Serving, giving, and connecting are not just things we have to do,

rather they are things we get to do.

Mark 10:42-45
