WHO WE ARE

OUR MISSION:

"Helping people become growing followers of Christ" Everyone is on a spiritual journey. God has a plan and purpose for everyone's life. The way we enjoy life to its fullest is by discovering God's plan and begin a path of fulfilling it. People are by nature far from God spiritually. Our mission as a church is to help people take progressive steps toward becoming mature followers of Christ, wherever they may be on their spiritual journey. Matthew 28:1920 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” 

OUR VISION:

"A church that gives life by helping people CONNECT with God and others, GROW in relationship with God, SERVE in their Godgiven gifts and passion, and LEAD others to become growing followers of Christ." We believe the local church is the hope of the world. It’s not government, academia, or business, but the church to whom God has entrusted the message of salvation, which truly changes people’s and lives. We believe it is our duty as a church to help enable everyone within our reach to reach their maximum potential in joyfully serving God and others out of their Godgiven gifts and passion.

OUR VALUES:

PEOPLE
We believe that people matter to God, and therefore, ought to matter to the church. We value diversity in age, ethnicity, social status, and giftings. We want our primary focus to be people, not programs. We believe our lives ought to compel our unsaved friends and neighbors to want to experience our joy. We believe that Jesus' message of salvation is for all people and that we are commissioned to deliver Hid message to those beyond our borders that they too will receive His grace.
Acts 5:20     Matthew 28:12     2 Corinthians 9:2      Philippians 4:4      Matthew 18:14      Luke 5:30-32
 
LIFE CHANGE
We believe that Jesus restores, renews, heals, and changes lives. Christ followers are on a lifelong journey of becoming like Him. Since our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit and instruments of righteousness, we must keep our bodies clean and consecrated for the Master's use.
1 Corinthians 6:19      Romans 6:13     Ephesians 4:22-24    Hebrews 12:1
 
WORSHIP
We believe worship should be honoring to God and uplifting to the congregation. We believe our style of worship plays a significant role in determining who comes through our doors.  Our worship style is focused on reaching the lost in our community as well as the spiritual growth of our attenders.
1 Chronicles 19:29    Psalm 100:2    John 4:22b-24
 
PRAYER
We believe prayer is essential to maintaining a God-centered life.  Prayer is central to everything we do.  We consistently pray over our members, our visitors, our ministries, our staff, our leaders and over God's vision for our church.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18    Philippians 4:4-7    Colossians 4:2
 
FAMILY
We believe family is the core foundation of society and of the church. We believe a God-honoring Christian walk must manifest itself in family life.  We believe in spending quality time with our family, praying together, learning together, and worshipping together.
Colossians 3:18-21    1 Timothy 5:4-8
 
SERVICE
We believe we are commissioned to serve one another in the body of Christ. Jesus commanded us to love one another. One of the most practical ways we can truly love our brothers and sisters in Christ is to serve each other using the spiritual gifts that God has given to us.
Galatians 5:13    1 John 3:11
 
STEWARDSHIP
We believe that all we have comes from God and belongs to God.  We demonstrate our thankfulness by using our resources wisely and not allowing them to control us or set our priorities.  We consider ourselves stewards, and give wisely and generously to expand the kingdom of God.
Matthew 6:19-21    1 Timothy 6:17-19    Matthew 6:1-4    Acts 20:35   2 Corinthians 8:7
