OUR CORE VALUES:

1. WORSHIP

God is the ultimate reality of things.

Christ is the center of our focus.(Col. 1:18) It's not about us.
God's glory is our passion. (Eph. 1:12) It's all about Him.
Worship is fostered in personal devotion. (Matt. 22:37) Loving God is primary.

2. DISCIPLESHIP

Christ-Likeness is our calling.

Following Christ is a life-long assignment. (Matt. 16:24, 25).Transformation is essential.
Christ as grace is the basis of our theology. (John 1:17) Christ is everything.
Discipleship is fostered in small groups (Matt. 18:20). Living things are composed of cells.

3. STEWARDSHIP

Everyone has a purpose in Christ’s Body

The church is Christ’s body, not a business. (Eph. 2:21-22) Church is an organic thing
Stewardship is everyone’s responsibility. (1 Peter 4:10) Use it or lose it.
Life is the goal of all ministry. (2 Cor. 3:6) If it’s not life, it’s just religion.
Love is doing things God’s way. (1 John 4:8) Only love can end our suffering.

4. MISSION

Compassion calls us to help everyone return to God.

God’s purpose is the source of our mission. (Eph. 1:10) History is “His-story”.
Every soul is important (Matt. 16:26). Everyone matters.
Structures must submit to Spirit. (Matt. 9:17)
It’s about the wine, not the wineskin.
There is one church in each locality. (Eph. 4:4)
Unity is strength.
