Our Values

  1. We value scripture and are committed to being guided by its principles and to proclaim its message as the means to revive, restore, and redeem.  (II Timothy 3:16-17)

  2. We value prayer as a daily obedient response to God, which He honors and to which He responds and acts in our best interest (I Thessalonians 5:17)

  3. We value worship as a unifying event that draws people to God as the only One who deserves whole-hearted adoration. Our worship is to inspire, encourage, ignite passionate love for Jesus and bring us to a loving surrender to Him whether done individually or as a church body.  (Psalm 150)

  4. We value pursuing a large, challenging vision knowing God glorifies Himself by accomplishing more through us than we ever could accomplish ourselves. (Ephesians 3:2)

  5. We value evangelism as an all-consuming passion, knowing Christ suffered and died for those who do not know Him (Matthew 28:19)

  6. We value excellence realizing that nothing less than our best efforts are sufficient for our excellent God. (I Corinthians 10:31)

  7. We value the family unit as the foundation to the healthy development and well-being of all future generations for their peace and joy. (Genesis 6:8, 22:18, I Chronicles 17:24-27)

  8. We value the church as a movement that is never large enough. We will always count our sheep and use it as a tool to make sure we have not lost one along the way.  Since it is the job of the church to make disciples, numerical growth is a measure we use to determine the church’s health and success. (Acts 2:41, 4:4, Matthew 14:21, 28:19)

  9. We value fellowship that involves is in spending such time together as enables us to love each other as Christ loves us. (John 15:12, Acts 2:44-47)

  10. We value doing whatever it takes to further Christ’s mission through the church by giving generously and sacrificially of our time, talents, and resources.  (Romans 12:1, 1 Corinthians 10:31)

  11. We value simplicity keeping ministries relevant and focused on our vision.  (Matthew 15:24, Galatians 2:7, Philippians 3:14, Hebrews 12:1)

  12. We value CHRIST as the Head of the church and keep Him first as we humbly seek to know Him better, love Him more, and serve Him more faithfully. (Exodus 20:3, I Samuel 7:3, Matthew 22:37, Luke 4:10, Ephesians 5:23)
