Core Values

These are the guiding principles and motives for our ministries:

Scriptural Saturation (Psalm 1:1-3; 2 Timothy 3:16-17):  We are committed to being a church that lives, breathes, and applies the Scriptures to all of life.

Deep Intimacy (Psalm 133:1-3; Jn. 13:34-35):  We are committed to being a church that builds relationships based on truth and grace.

Unselfish Service (Philippians 2:3-4; 1 Peter 4:10-11):  We are committed to being a church that seeks to serve, in order that the body of Christ is built up.

Spiritual Multiplication (Isaiah 52:7; Matthew 28:18-20):  We are committed to being a church that evangelizes, plants churches, and equips laborers for Christian service.

Dependent Faith (Daniel 3:17-18; Hebrews 11:6):  We are committed to being a church that trusts God in all circumstances through God-centered worship and dependent prayer.

Measures (what we desire to see in the lives of our people): Each measure flows directly out of one of our corporate values. Each measure is also to be evaluated based on internal (heart) and external (habits) transformation.

Faithful Obedience (Scriptural Saturation)

  1. Heart:  Am I committed to being a doer of the Word and not merely a hearer of the Word?
  2. Habits:  Is my life marked by obedience as I meditate on God’s Word (through studying, memorizing, hearing, and reading the Scriptures both personally and corporately)?

Loving Relationships (Deep Intimacy)

  1. Heart:  Do I value knowing and being known?
  2. Habits:  Do I have meaningful friendships with both Christian and non-Christian people?

Overflowing Generosity (Unselfish Service)

  1. Heart:  Do I delight in sharing God’s blessings for God’s work?
  2. Habits:  Am I sacrificing for God’s kingdom with my time, talent, and treasure?

Fruitful Lives (Spiritual Multiplication)

  1. Heart:  Does my heart yearn for others to become closer to God?
  2. Habits:  Am I personally engaged in the making of disciples through sharing my faith with the lost and walking with fellow believers?

Daily Dependence (Dependent Faith)

  1. Heart:  Do I trust God in all facets of my life?
  2. Habits:  Am I leaning on God daily through the spiritual disciplines (for example: fellowship with other believers, prayer, fasting, meditation on God’s Word, solitude, etc.)?
