  • CULTIVATING RELATIONSHIPS
    We believe we need to develop an outreach and skill to help others put God and others first. Knowing God and getting to know others is the means of uniting the church and community. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; John 14:34-35; Acts 2:46-47)
  • COMPASSIONATE SERVICE
    We believe that God inspires the desire in us to help others. (Matthew 25:31-46; Acts 2:45; Acts 4:34-36)
  • FAITHFUL STEWARDSHIP
    We believe we should be accountable for all of God's gifts, for by the example of our faithful stewardship we help our community and our world. (1 Peter 4:10-11; 1 Corinthians 4:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15)
  • TRANSFORMATIONAL WORSHIP
    We believe that God wants to capture hearts and minds as we joyfully worship Jesus in spirit and in truth producing faithful followers of Jesus Christ. (John 4:21-26; Romans 12:1-2)
  • BIBLICAL TEACHING
    We believe the Bible is the true and inspired word of God, and therefore we place high priority on the teaching, discussion, and life application of Scripture. Scripture gives us the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. It is God's way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:14-17; 1 Peter 1:22-25)
  • INTENTIONAL PRAYER
    We believe we need to be intentional in our prayer life. We pray for wisdom and strength to know God's purpose and to be faithful in doing his work. The health of our spiritual lives and the mission of our church body is fueled by prayer. Therefore we need to emphasize the importance of prayer and help cultivate this discipline. (1 Chronicles 7:14; James 5:15-16; Philippians 4:6-7)
