To worship and enjoy God, and lead others to do the same
To see the Gospel transform everything: ourselves, our church, our community, our world.
CORE VALUE 1: Gospel. LISTEN
God created a good world. We rebelled and rejected Him as King. But God in His infinite mercy and love sent Jesus to live the life we have not, die the death we deserve, and rise again securing forgiveness, freedom, and eternal life for all who believe. This good news is both the means of our entry into the family of God and the foundation for everything we are and do.
CORE VALUE 2: Mission. LISTEN
God is a missionary God and His Gospel not only saves us from sin, but saves us to His Mission of creating worshippers. This means that in reality all believers are missionaries placed sovereignly by God into their homes, workplaces, and neighborhoods to reach people with the Gospel. But the mission doesn’t end there, it calls us to pray, give, and go all over the world that all might hear the Gospel.
CORE VALUE 3: Community. LISTEN
Our Triune God exists in eternal community with Himself and created mankind to enjoy community with God through Jesus Christ as well as one another. As sinners saved by grace, welcomed to the Kingdom of God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we are now bound to Jesus as our head and to the church as His body. Sustained life change happens best as the Gospel is pressed out into life in the context of community. As believers we study God’s Word together, discuss the issues and challenges of life, confess sin, repent to one another, care for one another, and minister to one another.
CORE VALUE 4: Family. LISTEN
From the very good beginning, families have been the building blocks of society and the church. In fact the church is described as a family and through the Gospel all who believe are adopted into the eternal family of God. We believe that Scripture teaches that every church is a family and every family is a little church and we desire to see families redeemed, restored, and redirected to live for God in all that they do.
CORE VALUE 5: Beauty. LISTEN
God is beautiful. His creation is beautiful, His love is beautiful, His grace is beautiful, and His redemption is beautiful. Everything that God is and does testifies to His beautiful glory and grace. We believe that God created art and beauty to point us to something more beautiful than we can imagine…Him! Therefore we want to pursue excellence in all that we do and live in the beauty of our God and King participating in the beauty of His redemptive work.
