CORE VALUES

Our Core Values

WELCOMING

We believe that ALL are welcome. Therefore, we don’t care what you wear or what you’ve done, you are welcome here.

“Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.”
Romans 15:7 NLT

 

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:28 NLT

CONNECTING

We believe that we were created to be in a relationship with God and others. Therefore, we will be intentional with spending time with God and others.

“And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity – all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.”
Acts 2:44-47 NLT

CARING

We believe that we have been given gifts, talents, and resources to meet other people’s needs. Therefore, we will be good stewards of our resources so that we are able to give freely to others.

“For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.  I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.”
Matthew 25:35-36 NLT
INSPIRING

We believe that with God all things are possible. Therefore, no matter what our circumstances are there is hope.

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31 NLT

TRANSFORMING

We believe that God transforms us from the inside out through His Word and Holy Spirit. Therefore, we will let God renew and transform us.

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
Romans 12:2 NLT

 

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT

MULTIPLYING

We believe that healthy things grow. Therefore, we will reach the unreached by multiplying disciples and churches.

“Jesus called out to them, ‘Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!'”
Matthew 4:19 NLT

 

“Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’”
Matthew 28:18-20 NLT
