Core Values

Fulfillment   We acknowledge 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  The anointed 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  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 are 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 understand 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

Reaching the Lost  We understand 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 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.
