We Value the Authority of the Bible
We believe that the Bible is true and the very words of God. Through God’s Word, we are able to know God’s character, His plan of salvation made possible through His Son Jesus Christ, and His purpose for every person. As a church, we desire to be not only biblical in our teaching but biblical in everything we do as we seek to live out our lives in obedience to God’s Word.
We Value Spiritual Growth
We want to spend our lives pursuing God. When we seek to know Him through His Word and to live out His truth, we gain spiritual maturity. As we continue to mature in our faith, we are able to live our lives in a manner that pleases God and testifies to the truth and love of Jesus Christ.
We Value Bringing Hope to the Hopeless
All of us are born hopeless and separated from God because of our sin. When we place our faith in Jesus Christ, He forgives our wrongdoings, brings us into a right relationship with God, and gives us eternal life. We desire to be a church that is passionate about seeing people in our own community and around the world move from a place of hopelessness to a place of knowing everlasting hope through life in Christ.
We Value Being in Relationship with God’s People
We believe that it is vital to our spiritual growth to live life not alone but in community with others who can encourage, support, and spur us on through their own Christian testimony. We are committed to building authentic community by providing everyone with opportunities to develop deep and lasting relationships through small group environments that will help nurture and mature our faith in Jesus Christ.
We Value Being Dependent on God through Prayer
Prayer brings us to a place of dependence on God as we acknowledge Him as the one who holds our lives together. As a church, our starting point for everything we do is prayer. Through prayer we are asking God to lead us and direct us—to give us wisdom, unity, and spiritual discernment—so our church will live in obedience to the one who created us and gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ.
We Value Being Unified as a Church Family
Our church is made up of people of various life stages, backgrounds, and preferences who are united in the grace and truth of Jesus Christ. In seeking to be one body, serving one Lord, we desire unity in all we do. Understanding that we may not always agree in every aspect of church life, we desire to live as a family in love and peace, in a way that brings honor and delight to our God.
We Value Healthy and Growing Marriages
We believe a healthy family begins with a healthy marriage between a husband and wife. We desire to encourage, equip, heal, and strengthen marriages so that they will know the joy, freedom, and intimacy that can only be found in a relationship rooted in Jesus Christ.
We Value Seeing Children Know and love God
One of our great joys as a church is to see children and youth come to know and love the God who created them. Because we believe discipleship begins in the home, we want to pour our time, energy, and resources into equipping families to lead and love their children into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ.
