Our Core Values

RADICAL HOSPITALITY

Romans 15:7 – Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

We are receptive and welcoming to those seeking a church home. We will support you and show you the love of Jesus as Christ has shown to us.

PASSIONATE WORSHIP

Psalm 84:1-2 – How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of hosts! My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

We gather together in authentic and creative worship to find our connection to God. We seek to find life-changing experiences as we experience God’s presence.

INTENTIONAL FAITH DEVELOPMENT

Acts 2:42 – They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

We offer high-quality learning experiences to help people understand the Bible. We seek to mature in our faith through study, through fellowship with other Christians, and through disciple-making small groups.

RISK TAKING MISSION & SERVICE

Matthew 25:40 – Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.

We serve to make a positive difference in the lives of others for the purposes of Jesus Christ. We work locally, regionally, nationally and internationally and show the compassion of Christ to others through missions.

EXTRAVAGANT GENEROSITY

2 Corinthians 9: 11 – You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us.

We give in response to God’s generosity to us. Giving for us is a joyous action, a willingness to commit our resources to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
