Core Values

Lost people matter to God and therefore must matter to us.
Matthew 18:10-14, 28:19, Luke 15, 19:10, John 3:16
 
An effective church needs to be both culturally relevant and doctrinally pure.
Acts 17:16-34, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, Galatians 1:6-9, 2 Timothy 2:15
 
Excellence matters because it honors God and inspires people.
Malachi 1:6, Colossians 3:23-24
 
All healthy things grow and all growth involves change.
Luke 2:52, Ephesians 4:17-32, Philippians 1:6, Colossians 1:9-14, Hebrews 5:11-14, 1 Peter 2:2-3
 
God has called every Christ follower to be a full participant in the life of a local church and has uniquely gifted them for that role.
 Nehemiah 3, Psalm 133:1, Romans 12:3-8,1 Corinthians 12 & 14, Ephesians 4:1-13 
 
God does his greatest work through Spirit-filled people.
Acts 1:4-8, 2:17-21, 1 Corinthians 2:4, Ephesians 5:15-18, 2 Timothy 1:7
 
There is much we can do after we pray; but there’s nothing worth doing until we pray.
Luke 18:1-5, John 14:12-14,15:5-8, Colossians 4:2-4, James 5:13-18
 
Every Christ follower has a personal responsibility to take ownership for his or her own spiritual growth while we, as a church, have a responsibility to provide the inspiration, information and resources necessary for that growth to occur.
Ephesians 4:11-16, Colossians 1:28-29, Philippians 3:12-14, Hebrews 12:1-2, 2 Peter 1:5-8
 
Love and community must permeate every aspect of church life.
John 13:34-35, Acts 2:42-47,1 Corinthians 13:1-8, Hebrews 10:24-25
 
We have a God-given responsibility to link with other life-giving churches in order to be the eyes, ears, hands, feet and heart of Christ to those in our communities who need Him.
Isaiah 58:6-11, Matthew 25:31-46, John 17:20-23,21:15-17, James 1:26-27, 2:14-17
