values

We are committed to teaching and promoting the Bible as the written Word of God.  We believe that every word of the original manuscripts was inspired and chosen by God and completely without error.  We treasure God's Word as authoritative and useful for guiding our everyday lives and preparing us for the good works He has given us to do.  (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

We are committed to making disciples.  This includes winning unbelievers to Christ, helping believers to know Him better, and training believers to do these things in the lives of others. (Mathew 28:19-20; John 15:8)

We are committed to cultivating our relationship with God through individual and corporate prayer.  (1 Thess. 5:17; Luke 18:1)

We are committed to godly leadership at all levels.  We differentiate between those who work and those who lead, holding those who lead to a higher standard.  (1 Tim. 3; Titus 1:6-9; James 3:1)

We are committed to bringing honor to God through excellence in whatever we do.  We strive to develop and maintain high quality programs and to keep clean, safe, useful, and attractive facilities.  (Col. 3:23)

We are committed to interactive, passionate worship that is rooted in our love for God and recognition of his majesty.  We are further committed to a lifestyle of worship that extends beyond music and prayer to make our lives a loving sacrifice to God.  (John 4:23-24; Isaiah 6:1-5; Eph 5:19; Romans 12:1-2)

We are committed to following Christ's example of serving the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of others.  We want to protect and elevate human life at every stage, heal hurting people with the love of Jesus, and bring them into a life-giving relationship with Him.  (John 15:12; Mathew 22:39; Mark 9:35)

We are committed to a proactive attitude toward change, and to keeping our ministries culturally relevant.  (Is. 43:19; Mathew 9:17; Mark 2:21; Luke 5:36)

We are committed to real, godly relationships that help build us into one body in Christ.  We recognize conflict as natural and morally ambiguous, bringing positive results when handled honestly and governed by love for one another and for Christ.  We acknowledge gossip as a cancerous sin and renounce it.  (John 13:34-35; 1 John 4:7-12; 1 Peter 1:22; Eph. 4:26)
