Our mission is to partner with God
in transforming people
into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
We Value Our Relationship With God
God’s Word – In the Bible we encounter our Lord Jesus Christ the only one who can bring us into a relationship with God by which we are forever changed. So we purpose to build our lives and our ministries upon God’s eternal truth revealed in the pages of Scripture.
Dependence on God – Without him we can do nothing of eternal value so we seek the enabling power and presence of his Spirit through diligent prayer in all we do.
God honoring worship – Because of who God is and what he has done he is worthy of passionate, creative corporate worship which inspires individual lives of worship. We regularly observe the Lord’s Supper and believer’s baptism.
We Value Our Relationship With One Another
Authentic Christian community – Because we believe that life-change best takes place in the context of loving, “one-another” relationships we will diligently use our ministries and resources to build those connections in every part of our church body by putting people first.
Mature and ministering believers – The body of Christ is designed such that every member has a God-given ministry role. So we intentionally seek to develop committed followers of Christ who eagerly use their gifts to serve others.
Godly servant leaders – We desire to entrust leadership roles only into the hands of those who are biblically and spiritually mature.
We Value Our Relationship With The World
The Gospel – The Good News of Jesus Christ compels us to spread God’s love by word and deed. So we seek to develop a missional mind-set that corporately and individually engages the world outside our church with both practical deeds of compassion and a clear message of eternal life in Christ.
Kingdom Growth – We desire to enlarge the universal body of Christ. We will do this locally by multiplying small groups within our own body and when appropriate by starting new churches. We will do this globally by sending short and long term missionaries to make disciples in all nations.
Biblical Cultural Relevance – We will regularly evaluate our ministries in order to ensure they are both biblically sound and culturally appropriate.
