OUR VALUES

THE HEADSHIP OF CHRIST:
We value Jesus Christ as the Head of His church.  (Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18)

EVANGELISM:
We value sharing Christ in fresh and culturally relevant ways with people who don't know Him, in order to bring them to a saving knowledge of Him.  (Luke 19:10; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23)

DISCIPLESHIP:
We value the building of believers into mature followers of Christ who will be active in ministry and, in turn, build others into mature followers of Christ.  (Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:11-13; Hebrews 6:1-3;1 Peter 4:10)

RELATIONSHIPS:
We value healthy relationships, beginning with healthy families, and building into a healthy, unified Christian community.  (Matthew 12:46-50; John 17:20-23; Acts 2:44-46; Hebrews 2:11)

BIBLICAL TEACHING:
We value Biblical teaching and preaching that speaks Truth and Grace into people's lives and reveals God's nature.  (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Corinthinas 4:2; Ephesians 4:25; Colossians 4:6)

WORSHIP:
We value God-honoring worship that is expressed in various forms and in every area of life.  (Romas 12:1; Acts 2:42, 47)

GIVING:
We value the giving of our time, talents, and material resources to promote the mission of Christ and for meeting people's needs, both in and out of the Church, trusting God as our Great Provider.  (Malachai 3:10; Mark 12:41-44; 2 Corinthians 8-9)

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT:
We value a leadership team that is biblical, empowering, servant-hearted, reproducing, and that is comprised of people who are gifted and called by God to be leaders.  (Romans 12:8; 1 Timothy 3; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
