Our Values

Truth
 
The Bible is God’s Word. It outlines the standard by which our attitudes and behavior is to be measured. The challenge is to always bring our lives up to the standard of Truth and not adjust the standard of Truth to line up with our lives.
Leadership 
 
The pastoral staff serves as the overseers of the local church. In addition to giving spiritual oversight, they are responsible to train and equip the people (adults, youth & children) to do the work of the ministry according to the gifting and power of the Holy Spirit.
Community 
 
The church is a place to belong. It is like an extended family where each member is responsible to and for other members in accountable relationships. Members of the church care for and serve one another in an atmosphere of love, acceptance and forgiveness and live their lives together in both small and large group settings.
Transformation
 
Lives are transformed by the renewing of our minds. More than simply knowing about God and the Bible, we must personally know him in an intimate, transparent relationship where we experience forgiveness of sin, freedom from past hurts and healing of brokenness in our lives through the life changing power of the Spirit.
Giving 
 
The tithe (10%) is the foundation of biblical giving and is given and used in the local church. Faith Promise giving for missions, sacrificial giving for facilities and compassion giving for the needy are given above and beyond the tithe. While the tithe (10%) is given out of obedience to God, offerings above and beyond the tithe are optional and are to be given according to ability and desire. 
Prayer 
 
Prayer is not preparation for the work of the church it is the work. In prayer we discover and are led to accomplish the purpose of God in our life, family, church, community, nation and world. 
Outreach 
 
Prayer moves us outward rather than inward. Extending the Kingdom of God both at home and around the world must be at the forefront of our minds in every decision we make.
Worship
 
Through worship we bless God and minister to Him. We praise and worship Him for who He is through singing and the spoken word.
