Our Core Values
Bringing Glory to God
We were created by God in His image so that by expressing His nature and character, our lives would glorify Him.
Our Relationship With God
The things we do in and as members of the church are not to fulfill a religious duty, or gain God’s favor. We believe we enter into God’s favor being reconciled to Him through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Therefore all our worship and devotion is a means by which we seek to connect with God, know Him better, and love Him more.
Our culture finds value in how people look, what they have, and what they can do. We find value in being uniquely created by God to bear His image. Hence, we treat one another with honor, respect, and care.
We know that we are a work in progress. We also know that the work cannot progress unless we are real with God, with others, and with ourselves. We strive to be the same person: every day – everywhere.
We make it our aim to consistently stand on and live by the principles found in Scripture; regardless of how easy it is, what our culture deems acceptable, or whether anyone is watching.
We desire to interact with others in a mutually uplifting and strengthening environment. Therefore, we will work to promote unity and harmony, serve one another in love and choose to sacrifice our personal preferences to serve the greater good.
We want to see the realm of God’s love, power, influence, and blessing expand in our lives, in our homes, in our community, and in our world.
