Our Core Values

We believe that ALL Scriptures contained in the Bible were given through the inspiration of God, and are completely true, reliable, and authoritative as the ONLY authentic guide for the faith and life of ALL believers. Genuine spiritual growth and development in the Christian experience CANNOT occur without the study and practice of the teachings and principles provided by the Holy Scriptures. – 2 Timothy 3:16John 17:17Hebrews 4:12

We believe that salvation from sin and eternal destruction is a free gift of God to ALL who choose to believe in, and receive, Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We believe that God’s work of reconciliation for ALL sinners was completed at the cross of Calvary; but sinners must receive God’s Gift of reconciliation (Jesus Christ) in order to be acquitted from all their sins.  – Ephesians 2:8-92 Corinthians 5:18-20Romans 5:1-215-17

We believe that the greatest call to every true disciple is to an intimate and supreme relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. This relationship is developed and maintained through abiding fellowship with the Lord in the practice of the spiritual disciplines (e.g. prayer, Bible study, worship, fellowship, fasting, etc.), and the sharing of His saving grace with others. Complete devotion to Christ and His cause should be the normal disposition reflected in the life of every disciple.  –   John 15:1-516Galatians 2:202 Corinthians 5:14-15

We believe that authentic discipleship—not mere church membership—is the singular platform given by Jesus for building His Kingdom. A true disciple is one whose entire life is consumed by the passion of imitating his Master, Jesus Christ, in thought, word, and life. We believe that every born-again believer is called to be a disciple, and every disciple is called to be a fisher of men. Our community is dedicated to making, training, sending and affirming disciples of Jesus Christ. –   Matthew 4:19Matthew 10:1-824-25Matthew 28:18-20John 8:31

We believe that worship is not simply a community activity when we are assembled together, but a life that we live in constant awareness of and in response to God’s mercy, greatness, and love. It extends beyond times of singing to times of learning, prayer, fellowship and sharing.  –  Romans 12:1Matthew 5:13-16John 4:23-24

We believe that man was created for fellowship with God. Through faith in Christ we are born-again by the one and same Spirit of God, which indwells every believer; and we are admonished to be diligent in preserving this unity of spirit in the bond of peace. We believe that community fellowship facilitates and fosters this unity. It is not spiritually healthy or safe for a believer to live and function in isolation from the believing community. –  Genesis 1:26Ephesians 4:1-6Colossians 3:16Hebrews 10:23-25

We believe that every disciple has been uniquely gifted and given resources (talents, finances, possessions, time, etc.) for the building of the body of Christ and the advancement of God’s Kingdom. Our community is a place for disciples to be trained, encouraged and equipped to do this work. Ephesians 4:8, 11-13; Malachi 3:8-12; 2 Corinthians 9:6-8; 1 Corinthians 4:1, 2
