PRESENCE OF GOD: We completely acknowledge the fact that without the presence of God in our Sunday morning services or in our people we have no capacity for real life transformation. This is something that will begin with each individual and make its way into everything we do. This is not just something that we want on Sunday morning but also in every community group that we have.
THE WORD OF GOD: We acknowledge that the basis and direction of our ministry will be formed and founded on the Word of God. We believe and trust in its authority and power. This will be felt and realized in every Sunday message and every community group discussion. We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of all people, and the final authority for all Christian faith and life.
AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS: Real discipleship, training, and mentoring happen in authentic relationships. It is difficult to grow authentic relationships on Sunday morning; therefore, we will focus from day one to build community outside of that time frame.
THE NEXT GENERATION: We are dedicated to partnering with parents in building the next generation of passionate Christ followers who fulfill Jesus’ Great Commandment to love God, love others and reach our world. We believe our best and most effective way to do this is by equipping and growing parents to shepherd their children.
COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION / OUTREACH: Community transformation happens best in the community. Our heart is to train our people to be agents of change in the place that God has placed them – in their work environment, in the neighborhoods and in their sphere of influence. We will use our community groups to share the Gospel and see lives changed in our city, our nation, and our world through practical ministry that meets people’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
TEAMWORK: We do life together. As we work side by side, we share in the joy of seeing our unique strengths, abilities and gifts unite to accomplish God’s kingdom in our community and across the world.
