What We Believe

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
~Matthew 28:19-20

Mission Statement

We make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

We believe a disciple of Jesus Christ develops a personal relationship with Jesus Christ by praising, growing, sharing and caring. A disciple:

  • Worships in community
  • Reads and applies the Bible
  • Prays
  • Tells others about Jesus
  • Matures in faith through individual and group experiences
  • Gives sacrificially and joyfully
  • Develops God-loving, grace-filled relationships
  • Embraces one's gifts and uses them in service to others

Our Core Values

Our work is guided and shaped by these core values:
Compassion - We believe all people* matter to God; therefore, we extend love, help, acceptance and hope to all.
Community - We believe God commands us to love our neighbor; therefore, we develop God-loving, grace-filled relationships where we praise, grow, share and care together.
Servanthood - We believe God calls us to be servants and blesses each of us with unique talents and gifts; therefore, we use our gifts in service to all.
Excellence - We believe we have received God's best in creation and in His Son; therefore, we strive for excellence in all we do believing God is worthy of our best.
