We Value God:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit, therefore we are committed to seeking God's values

and aligning our values with His.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

our core values

We value a close personal relationship with God.

We believe God desires a close personal relationship with us today. He modeled this through His relationships with Abraham, Moses, and David as well as the relationship Jesus had with His disciples.

God proved it to us when He sent Jesus Christ to remove all barriers between us and him through his

death and resurrection.  Genesis 1, 15-17; The Book of Exodus;  I Kings 11:4; Matthew 12:30, & 22:37-38;

John 3:16Romans 8; Revelations 3:20

 

We value prayer.

We believe God wants us to talk with Him and He with us. Prayer is how we communicate with God,

how we are energized to serve, and how we demonstrate our dependence on God.

2 Chronicles 6:14; Isaiah 56:7; Matthew 14:23, 21:13 & 26:36-46

We value worship, both communal and individual.

We believe God values the praise of His people. In fact, we believe God created and saved

people to worship Him as an expression of love for Him. This takes place when we seek

to encounter God, as a community or by ourselves, in every aspect of life.

Psalms 95, 96, 145-150, Ephesians 1:11-14, Colossians 3:15-17, 23

We value community.

We believe God created people to be in close personal relationship with each other.  In fact, we

believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of our lives.

Genesis 1; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12John 13:34-35; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:10, 13-16 I Corinthians 12-14

We value people wherever they are on their spiritual journey.

We believe God created all people and therefore all people belong to Him by right. However, through our sin we lost our sense of belonging. Yet, God values people who are far from Him, so much so, He sent Jesus Christ to help people find their way home. We find God when we acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We believe that God, in His wisdom, has delegated the church as His key instrument in seeking and saving the lost.  Luke 15; John 3:16; Romans 3: 23-25; 2 Corinthians 5:18

We value continuous life change that moves people toward

greater authenticity and Christlikeness.

We believe God designed us to continually progress in our relationship with Him. As we seek to be real and be like Christ, our lives will honor God, attract others to Him and create the fulfilling life God intended. We believe the pursuit of complete devotion to the cause of Christ should be normal for all believers. Since Jesus gave his life for us, we seek to give our lives to him.

John 8:11b; John 16; Luke 23; Romans 12:2; Ephesians 4:22-24, & 5:8-10; Galatians 5:22-23; Philippians 2:1-11

We value people using their spiritual Gifts with an attitude of service.

We believe that God has equipped each believer with spiritual gifts so together we might make a difference in the lives of people and the world. Therefore, believers need to discover, develop and utilize their gifts, shaped by an attitude of love, unity, and service.  Romans 12:6-16; I Corinthians 12James 1:26, 2:14-26

We value stewardship & justice.

We believe God created the whole universe, therefore everything belongs to Him. God has entrusted us with His resources for building up His kingdom as well as for meeting the personal needs of ourselves and others. In mercy, we must care for “the poor, the widowed and the orphan” as well as all of God’s creation, with our time, energy and finances. Genesis1:28-30, Malachi 3:10, Micah 3, Micah 6:8, James 1:27, 2:14-19
