TRUTH

Newness of Direction from the Bible – We believe in the authority and relevance of the Bible, giving truth and direction in every aspect of our daily lives.  Therefore, we place high priority on reading, studying, and applying God’s Word in every situation.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

TEAMWORK

Everyone Working Together – We believe God gives gifts and talents to people.  Together, we purpose to discover, develop, and use our gifts and talents.  Through teamwork, we use these resources to serve others and honor God.  (2 Corinthians 9:6-15)

WORSHIP

We believe worship is a whole-person, whole-life, experiential relationship with God.  We love, honor, and glorify Him in the Sanctuary, in our homes, and in our work places 24/7/365.  (Matthew 22:36-37)

SERVE

Helping – We believe God calls us to serve the people in our Church, our Community, and our World.  We seek to be aware of the needs and be involved in the lives of those around us, in ever-widening circles.  We pour ourselves out to meet those needs with compassion as God leads and empowers us.  (Acts 4:32-35)

TRANSFORMED

Open to the work of the Holy Spirit – We believe following Jesus is a life-long journey of relationship with God.  As we love and follow Him, being open and surrendering ourselves to Him, we are being transformed by the Holy Spirit.  He shapes our character and molds us into the image of Jesus.  (Romans 12:1-3)

PRAYER

We believe God longs for direct and intimate conversation with us.  We choose to create an atmosphere in which prayer permeates everything we do.  (Philippians 4:6)

COMMUNITY

Experiencing Relationships – We believe Jesus calls us to live in community.  As we share life together, we show love, demonstrate acceptance, and celebrate forgiveness in relationship with each other.  As the Church, we seek to enter into meaningful relationships with one another.  (Acts 2:42-47)
