Our Core Values: 

God Centered Life: We value living a life centered around our relationship with God. We need God’s word to permeate every aspect of what we do. We align our goals and efforts around a life centered on God’s direction. (Joshua 1:8, Matthew 22:37-40, proverbs 3:5-6)

Healthy Family Leads to Healthy Community: our first responsibility in the church is our own families, and then our neighbors God has placed around us. We prioritize health in the home in order to minister to the world God has placed around us. (Matthew 22:37-40, I Timothy 5:8, Ephesians 6:4, Acts 10:2, I John 4:19-21)

We Before Me: We value unity in the church. We believe the world will know us by how we love one another. we will put “being one” before “being right” and choose to get along rather than get our way. (John 13:35, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Ephesians 4:3, I Corinthians 1:10, Colossians 3:13-14)

Growing Together: We value Jesus’ great commission to raise up God’s people by baptizing and discipling others. healthy people are growing people, who are reaching our world with Christ. (Matthew 28:19-20, II TIMOTHY 2:2, Matthew 16:24-25, I Corinthians 11:1)

Faith Requires Risk: We value going after God given dreams, visions, and direction. We are doers of God’s word not just hearers. We live our lives dependent on God’s provision and equipping not being limited by what we can see or control. (James 1:22, James 2:14, 1 Samuel 15:22, Ephesians 3:20-21, Romans 4:20-22, Ecclesiastes 11:4, Hebrews 11:6)

Loving People First: We value loving people regardless of their differences, shortcomings, or backgrounds. Just as Jesus loved us before we loved him, we choose to lead with love. We come to God as we are, Being transformed as we follow him. (I Corinthians 13, I John 4:7-21, Romans 5:8, I Peter 4:8, Matthew 11:28-29)
