What we practice

We desire that our core values define and drive this ministry in the context of a warm and caring Christian community.

  • Christ's Leadership: We acknowledge Christ as the head of our church and submit ourselves and our activities to His will and good pleasure.  Ephesians 1:22-23
  • Biblical Teaching: We strive to teach God's Word with integrity and authority so that seekers find Christ and believers mature in Him.  2 Timothy 3:16
  • Authentic Worship:  We desire to acknowledge God's supreme value and worth in our personal lives in the corporate, contemporary worship of our church.  Romans 12:1-2
  • Prayer:  We rely on private and corporate prayer in the conception, planning, and execution of all the ministries of this church.  Matthew 7:7-11
  • Christian Community:  We ask all our people to commit to and fully participate in biblical functioning small groups which we call LIFE Groups, Focus Groups, and Life Transformation Groups.  Through our small groups, they may reach the lost, exercise their gifts, be shepherded, and thus grow in Christ-likeness.  Acts 2:44-46
  • Family: We support the spiritual nurturing of the family as one of God's dynamic means to perpetuate the Christian faith.  2 Timothy 1:5
  • Grace Orientation:  We encourage people to serve Christ from hearts of love and gratitude rather than guilt and condemnation.  Romans 6:14
  • Lost People:  We value unchurched, lost people and will use every available Christ-honoring means to pursue, win, and disciple them.  Luke 19:10
  • Mobilized Congregation:  We seek to equip all our uniquely designed and gifted people to effectively accomplish the work of the ministry.  Ephesians 4:11-13
  • Ministry Excellence:  Since God gave His best (Jesus), we seek to honor Him by maintaining a high standard of excellence in all our ministries and activities.  Colossians 3:23-24
  • Kingdom of God Influence in Our Culture:  We are to be salt and light to our world.  We believe our society and our political and educational systems should be influenced by God's Spirit and Word.
