Values

Jesus Christ is our Lord and personal Savior.
“I am the way and the truth and the life.”

John 14:6

The Bible is the Word of God and the foundation on which we stand.
“All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17

We pray.
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Our church reflects an unchanging faith in a changing world.
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

2 Corinthians 4:18

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

Hebrews 13:8

Because we exist for ministry, we expect our organizational structure and material resources to change as God leads.
“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, making the tear worse. Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”

Matthew 9:16-18

We strive to be a loving, unified, welcoming family.
“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called – one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”

Ephesians 4:1-6

In small groups we learn the word of God, supporting and encouraging each other.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

Acts 2:42

Everyone has a place; everyone has a ministry.
“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are may form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”

Romans 12:4-5

Through discipleship, Christian education, and worship we equip people for ministry.
“It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

Ephesians 4:11-13

We look for opportunities to share Christ’s love through our actions, conversation, and character.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”… “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
