What We Believe
Our Core Values Define Our Fundamental Beliefs And Therefore Dictate Our Words And Behavior. They Are Not Options; But Non-Negotiable Principles That Will Guide Our Decisions And Be Used To Determine If We Are On The Right Path In Fulfilling Our God-Given Mission.
- The Lordship of Jesus – We acknowledge the Lordship of Christ and commit ourselves only to His purposes and will.
- Holy Spirit – We must have the presence and power of God’s Holy Spirit to teach, gift, empower, and guide us in doing the continuing work of Jesus.
- The Bible – The Bible is God’s completely true and saving Word. We will faithfully use it to bring the lost to Christ and believers to maturity in Him.
- Authentic Worship – Our worship will be Christ-centered, authentic, and generationally relevant.
- Prayer – We must personally and corporately pray because God hears and answers; and God commands that we pray.
- Evangelism & Discipleship – God wants every person to be saved. Therefore, we will use every available Christ-honoring means to pursue, win, and disciple them.
- Servant Ministry – With a servant’s heart we join Christ in loving and helping those who are hungry, sick, and hurting.
- Missions – We will join with others throughout the world in doing Jesus’ work among men.
- Love- God loves every person. Jesus commands that we love God and other people. Therefore, we commit ourselves to love God, each other, and those outside our church.
