Fulfillment: We believe that man was created in the image of God for the glory of God and when we purse Him we will find our greatest fulfillment and
satisfaction in life. Therefore, we will encourage people to seek Him, know Him, and listen to Him as  their ultimate authority in all matters of life.

God's Word: We believe that the Spirit-led teaching of God's Word is the catalyst for transformational living in the life of any individual. Therefore, we
will provide various opportunities for people to study God's Word together.

Prayer: We believe that prayer, expressed with a spirit of humility and brokenness not only touches the heart of God, but it also connects us to the
heart of God and enables us to carry out the will of God. Therefore, we integrate prayer into our gatherings and promote personal prayer in the lives of
our people.

Authentic Relationships: We believe that the church is a community of real people living out real faith. Therefore, we will provide small group and
discipleship opportunities where relationships, caring, and the application of biblical teaching are emphasized.

Personal Growth and Holiness: We believe that God's best for each believer involves all followers to pursue holiness and continually take steps toward
intimacy with Christ. Therefore, we provide discipleship opportunities for all levels of spiritual maturity and welcome accountability for how we live.

Reaching the Lost: We believe that lost people matter to God and therefore matter to us.  Therefore, we encourage every believer to intentionally
invest in personal relationships outside of church, meeting physical needs, sharing the gospel message, and inviting them to explore a personal
relationship with Jesus and His church.

Every Member Participation: We believe that the body works best when the whole body works. Therefore, we encourage everyone to discover their
spiritual gifts and actively use them.

Generosity: We believe that we are stewards and that God owns all things. Since He is generous in nature, He invites us to be generous in all things.
Therefore, we will teach, encourage, and provide opportunities for generous giving in all areas of life.

Cultural Relevance: We believe that the church is most effective when its ministry of reconciliation is combined with cultural relevance with doctrinal
purity. Therefore, we will subject our ministry to constant evaluation and improvement in order to effectively engage each generation by bringing the
unchanging truth of God to a changing culture.
