Core Values
  • Authenticity 
To pursue vulnerability and humility so we have genuine relationships with one another and God. Authenticity involves truth telling and Biblical conflict resolution. 
Galatians 6:1-10 | Ephesians 4:25-32 | Philippians 2:1-4  | Psalm 51 | Matthew 18:15-1
  • Small Groups 

To acknowledge that life change occurs best in a small group of Christian disciples. Small groups are the church; not a program of the church. Acts 2:46-47 | Acts 16:40 | Acts 20:20

  • Process
To measure our success by the process (the way we do ministry) and not just the product (the ministry programs). John 13:34-35 | 1 Thessalonians 2:8 |  Matthew 18: 15-17
  • Interdependence

To acknowledge our dependence upon others and the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish our goals.Every member is a minister. Ephesians 4:11-16 | Ephesians 6:18-19 | 1 Corinthians 12 | Romans 12:3-9

  • Compassion 

To demonstrate compassion by modeling the servant nature of Jesus Christ. We expect to participate in missions on a local, state, national and global level. Matthew 9: 35-37 | Galatians 5:13-14 | James 2:14-26

  • Excellence

To be intentional in giving God our best. Excellence honors God and inspires people. Excellence requires ongoing evaluation. Excellence is doing the best with what God has given us. Leviticus 22:20-22 |  Numbers 18:29-30 | Ephesians 6:5-8 | Colossians 3:17-24

  • Joy

To experience joy produced by the Holy Spirit through studying Gods word individually, in small groups and in the larger community of faith. Joy is fulfillment, not simply happiness. Galatians 5:22-23 | 2 Timothy 3:16-17 | Hebrews 4:12 |  Acts 2:46

  • Acceptance 

To accept persons where they are and enable them to grow in their faith journey. To remove barriers in the church that keep people from a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. Fully devoted followers should expect to sacrifice on behalf of persons seeking a faith relationship. John 8:1-8 | John 4:1-26 | 2 Corinthians 6:2-10 |  1 Peter 2:2

  • Relevance

To demonstrate the relevance of Jesus Christ where the intellectual and the emotional come together in a revelation about God. We expect continuous change in methodology.1 Corinthians 9:19-23 | John 4:24 | Ephesians 5:15-20
