John 14:6; Colossians 1:15-20
Jesus is God's perfect expression of His love. So much so that He sent His son to live and die to save us. This drives our focus and centers our ministries from Sunday mornings to children's ministries to everyday relationships. Our lives and ministries are the representation of the love of Jesus
James 14:6; Jeremiah 31:33; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18
The journey is just as valuable as the goal. God continues to love and look after us daily. In turn, we put our faith and trust in God. We work daily as individuals and as a community to cast off our imperfections and look more like Jesus. Our beliefs affect our actions. We practice the studying of Scripture, prayer, and worship.
Genesis 1:27; Ephesians 4:2-4
God values people so we value people. We believe that every person is important, not because of what they do or believe, but because of who they are. We desire to build genuine and lasting relationships. We want to welcome all people, care for all needs, and share one another's burdens.
Ephesians 4:16; Acts 2:43-47
God desires all mankind to be in relationship with Him. Making Him known and sharing this relationship is our mission. To this end, God has entrusted each of us unique gifts, passions, burdens, skills, and talents. We use all of our talents to further the work and mission of making Him known. We can do more together than we can ever do alone.
Colossians 3:23; 1 Peter 1:8-9; Isaiah 35:10
God gave us His best in Jesus Christ and we believe that He deserves our diligence and excellence in making Him known. We believe that this work is not a burden but a privilege, and we find every opportunity to celebrate this forgiveness, eternal-life, and freedom we find in Jesus.
Acts 20:35; Proverbs 11:25
Everything we have comes from God, in Jesus he has given us more than we deserve and everything we need. We model His sacrificial generosity by practicing wise stewardship and the sharing of our resources in a way that stretches our faith. We give because our God gives so much.
Philippians 4:13; Acts 1:8; Matthew 19:26
God has shown that there is no limit to what He can do, and when we step out in faith He shows His power through us in incredible ways. We pray hard and trust big because we believe God wants to do far more than we can imagine. We believe a powerful, miracle-working God is still living and active in our lives today.
