Our Values

Frequently, people ask, "Why does a church have values?" Values guide and direct how our church carries out our mission and ministries.
Relevant Culturally
We aim to do ministry in innovative ways that identify with contemporary culture without compromising the truth of God's Word. We believe the church should remain culturally relevant in order to connect with the spiritually disconnected. Jesus carried out His ministry by being culturally relevant to lost people in His day (1 Corinthians 9:19-23). Since lost people matter to God they should matter to us.
Authentic Community
We believe life-change and spiritual growth happen best in authentic community with others (Luke 6:12-13; Acts 2:44-47). God never intended for us to go through life in isolation. In community spiritual disciplines are practiced which help us achieve intimacy with God, as is evidenced by the integrity and fruitfulness of our lives (Luke 5:16; John 15:5-17).
Celebrating Life Transformation
We believe a party is thrown in heaven as lives are transformed on earth. Everything is done with the idea of people taking spiritual steps. We teach and strive for life transformation and see it as a high calling that should be celebrated (Romans 12:7, 2 Timothy 3:16–17, James 1:23–25).

Excellence
We believe excellence honors God and inspires people. God gave the best gift ever in Jesus Christ. Therefore, He deserves our best in return (Malachi 1:6-14; Colossians 3:17).

Serving Others
We believe the best way for the church to do ministry is when believers serve with humble hearts inside and outside the church. Caring for those within our family by serving on ministry teams is essential as well as reaching those outside our church walls through mission projects. When we serve God in these ways, we are more fruitful and fulfilled. Our goal is for every member to be a minister and to use their gifts in ministry (Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 12; 1 Corinthians 14; Ephesians 4:11-13; Philippians 2:5-11;               Matthew 25:45).
