This is the beginning!

Core values create the proper environment in which strategies can be accomplished and vision can be fulfilled. These eight core values can be seen as powerful habits or behaviors. Internalize them and make them part of who you are. Then you'll be poised to take the NEXT STEP in your journey. 

#1 We passionately pursue Jesus.

What does that mean, the word community?

We believe that together in fellowship we grow

closer to God and one another. The bible speaks

about iron sharpening iron. We believe that

together we grow stronger. We are

a community of believers. 

#2 We fully embrace the power of the Holy Spirit.

We strive to be a church without walls. Jesus

calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the

lost and the broken. It is there that the lost

will be found. Most churches find it is comfortable

to stay within the walls, but we make it an

effort to be like the church from the book

of Acts, to see our city changed.

#3 We encourage people to

ongoing improvement.

We highly value our relationships with

one another. We look to grow through

fellowship, and ultimately growing closer

to God. We value the Word of God, and

the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look

to extend grace to all of the lost and

broken, and lead those with no hope

to the hope of Jesus Christ.

#4 We create opportunities for every person to use their gifts.

We share our talents, passions, time

and gifts to serve others. We believe

prayer and creativity is key to fulfilling our vision.

#5 We are a family who is better together.

We are a multicultural, multi-ethnic

family united under one God-given

vision. We pray for one another and

extend grace to one another.

#6 We live to give.

We are contributors not consumers. We lead

the way in generosity. No amount of money,

resources or effort is insignificant in our

attempts to reach those in need of Jesus.

#7 We invest in the next generation.

We train, equip and commission the

next generation. We pray for and partner

with parents to help them raise children

who love God and serve others.

#8 We act in audacious faith.

We act in faith to set impossible goals,

take bold steps and watch God move.

In order to fulfill our vision, we think big

with an outward focus on others.
