To glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ.
Drawing generations together to send out: Kingdom-minded, Christ-centered, Biblically-anchored, World-changers.
At the heart of our values is an understanding that our journey with God and each other is all about Covenant and Kingdom.
Covenant is the theme in scripture that expresses God’s desire to call us into deep and loving relationship with Him and to partner with Him in transforming our society as we ourselves are transformed.
Kingdom is the rule and reign of God in His people, and increasingly in this world. We partner with Him to further His Kingdom in words, works and wonders as we overflow His great “power that is at work within us” (Eph 3:20) into the world around.
We believe that every Christian can learn to do what Jesus did on earth, and should take responsibility for growing to do so. We aim at all times to model Jesus’ approach to his followers which was low control, high accountability. Three simple questions are integral in this process:
- What is God saying to you?
- What are you going to do about it?
- Who are you going to tell?
Core Values are like DNA — the common thread and building blocks that make up how we together “seek first the kingdom.” Being aware of our values should shape our behavior as a church—from the biggest to the smallest matters, confident that these values are biblically rooted. We should aim to copy these values, and to measure what we already do against them.
