CORE VALUES

Value #1 - We value a New Testament model of church, in which Christ is our head, the Bible is our guide, and we are empowered by the Holy Spirit. We are an Elder led, autonomous local church with Apostolic oversight. We live out our mission by equipping all members for the work of the ministry.

{Ephesians 4:11-12; Titus 1:5; Revelation 2:1,8,12,18 & 3:1,7,14}

Value #2 - We value praise and worship in corporate meetings and as a lifestyle. The Bible shows us many ways to worship including singing, raising hands, clapping, dancing, praying, giving, and serving. Worship is more than a thing we do; it's how we live.

{Psalm 95:1-6; Psalm 100:2, 2 Corinthians 8:1-7; Romans 12:1-2}

Value #3 - We value prayer as an integral part of our daily life. We encourage prayer and intercession, believing God speaks to us and that He hears us. Prayer is a corporate activity and a personal discipline. It is expressedin many forms and for various purposes including silent contemplation, seeking direction, asking for healing, praying for revival, and to bring about change in our world and in our circumstances.

{2 Chronicles 7:14; Matthew 6:6-13; John 14:14; 1 Timothy 2:1; James 5:14-16}

Value #4 - We value generosity. All that we have comes from God and it is our joy to share generously with others. Our generosity may be expressed through showing hospitality, giving financially, and volunteering our time, talents, and resources.

{Romans 12:13; 2 Corinthians 8:7; Hebrews 13:2; 1 Peter 4:10}

Value #5 - We value discipleship. We are disciples of Jesus, continually being formed into His image as we love, forgive, and serve one another. We are also making disciples through teaching God's Word and sharing our lives. Christ's character in us is evidenced by the fruit of the Spirit as we allow Him to live through us. {1 Corinthians 4:15-17; Galatians 2:20; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 John 1:7}

Value #6 - We value integenerational community, choosing to walk together in all stages of life and honoring all ages among us. We strive to be transparent with one another and develop authentic relationships. We seek to nourish individuals, married couples, and families by doing life together, with our homes and at church.

{Psalm 145:4; Malachi 4:6; Acts 2:46-47; 1 Timothy 5:1-3}

Value #7 - We value outreach. We are a missional church, extending the light of Jesus through evangelism, compassion ministries, church planting, and local, regional, and international missions.

{Proverbs 31:8-9; Micha 6:8, Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8}
