VALUES GET US TO OUR DESTINATION 

It's who we are and what we believe, holding us together on our journey...

 

JESUS CHRIST  

personal relationship with Jesus is the center of everything we do and believe. He is the only way to God and the only way to be saved.

 

THE BIBLE

The Bible teaches us who God is and how He wants us to live. The Bible is both accurate and true, and we do our best to understand it the same way the first followers of Jesus did.

 

THE KINGDOM OF GOD  

We aren’t here to promote our own agenda or make ourselves look good. We are Kingdom-minded. We coach, activate, and send people to advance God’s Kingdom on Earth.
 

PASSIONATE SPIRITUALITY  

We value a passionate and Spirit-filled expression of worship, prayer, and ministry, as modeled by Jesus and His first followers.
 

FAMILIES & CHILDREN 

We are committed to nurturing healthy families who grow, worship, and serve together. Our children are equal stakeholders in the Gospel, which motivates us to provide excellent care and instruction.
 

GOVERNANCE  

A team of elders is God’s way of guiding the church. Our church is governed locally, and connected to a larger network that provides support and oversight.  

 

COMMUNITY

People aren’t meant to be alone. We are intentional about connecting people and building a community that cultivates personal responsibility and fulfills Jesus’ command to love one another.
 

MULTI-ETHNIC

We want our church to look and sound like heaven, made up of every tribe, language, and race. We do not tolerate racism, bigotry, or bias. People of all ethnicities should feel safe and at home here.
 

MULTI-GENERATIONAL 

We purpose to make our church a place where members of all ages can thrive and participate in our ministry, honoring the unique interdependence God has created between old and young. It is vital to our success as a local church that we achieve meaningful connections across all generations.
 

SOCIAL JUSTICE  

God has called his people to work for justice. We respond to that call by advocating for the abused, neglected, oppressed, hated, forgotten, enslaved, and unborn.
 

EXCELLENCE

We dedicate ourselves to excellence in all we do, both to honor God and inspire people. Our music, media, arts, and environment are designed to connect with the people God has called us to serve.
 

WORLD MISSIONS  

God wants every person on the planet to know Him personally, and we are a part of helping that happen. In addition to going on mission trips, we give ten percent of our regular income to global and home missions. We prayerfully send and generously support missionaries across the globe. 
 

HONESTY & AUTHENTICITY  

We value honesty and authenticity with God and people. We are committed to keeping our church free from gossip. We talk to people, not about them.
