Our values stem from our convictions and experiences. They determine who we are, how we act, and what we will become.

  • Full-devotion to Christ is normal for every believer (Col. 3:17).
  • Scripture is the final authority and finds daily application in our lives (2 Tim. 3:16).
  • Every member is a minister (Rom. 12, 1 Cor. 12:4-7, Eph. 4:11-12).
  • The church is to engage culture, but not be driven by it (1 Cor. 9:19-23).
  • Small groups provide for biblical community (Acts 2:42-47).
  • The name of Jesus must be constantly on our lips with each other and those we are in contact with (1 Pet 3:15).
  • The marriage/family unit is highly honored (Heb. 13:4).
  • Shepherding is practiced by all and develops a healthy church (Matt 18:15-20, Heb. 10:23- 24).
  • Discipleship is essential for raising up a future generation of faithful believers (Matthew 28:20, 2 Tim 2:2).
  • Excellence honors God and should be a defining mark of believers (1 Cor. 10:31, Col. 3:17).
