Our Values:

Centrality of Jesus Christ, God the Son
–The focal point of our ministry will always be the honor and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and in our place, was buried, raised from the dead, and now is exalted to the right hand of God the Father. He is the founder and head of the church and his Spirit lives in those who receive Him.

The Inerrancy and Sufficiency of Scripture
–The authority for our ministry comes from the Word of God as we submit ourselves to its teaching, commit ourselves to do what it says, and yield our lives to become what Christ desires for us to be.
–Scripture contains all the words of God that we need for salvation, for trusting him perfectly, and for obeying him perfectly.

The Importance of Expository Teaching
–Expository teaching presents the contextual meaning of the Bible passage entirely and exactly as it was intended by God. Any form of teaching that misses that intended purpose and design of God falls short of the divine plan.

The Centrality of a Biblical Philosophy of Ministry
–The church is the Bride of Christ under the Lordship of Jesus Himself. As such, the church is to conduct itself according to the principles and practices defined in Scripture.

The Undergirding of Prayer
–All that we do must have the thorough undergirding of our individual and corporate prayer support, depending on the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in our ministry.

A Missions and Evangelism Emphasis
–The conviction that God will one day judge the living and the dead, and that Jesus is the only way of salvation, leads us to pursue vigorous means of proclaiming the gospel by sending our members to take the message to all those who need to hear, both locally and to the ends of the earth.

An Environment of Grace and Forgiveness
–Convinced of the absolute sovereignty of a Holy God, we understand that nothing good happens in our ministry apart from His grace, which is the desire and ability to accomplish God’s will. Consequently, our ministry together must be characterized by that same grace in our response to one another.

The Accountability of Small Groups
–Maturity and integrity in the lives and ministries of our members requires that we provide a context for discipleship and accountability relationships. As such, we give high priority to the development of small groups where that can take place.

The Importance of Family
–Recognizing that one of the greatest training grounds and battlefields of our faith in Christ is right within the home, we are committed to strengthening the spiritual lives of families as they seek to train their children and become beacons of light for Christ within our community.

The Significance of Humble Servanthood
–Our ministry is built upon the assumption that there is no task, no responsibility, beneath any of our members so that we undertake every ministry with a humble heart, grateful for the privilege of serving Christ and His body.

Every Believer Involved in Ministry
–Each believer has been gifted by God and commissioned by Christ to serve Him. Unbelievers are dependent on believers, and believers are mutually dependent on each other, for this service. Pastors are to motivate and equip the church to do the work of ministry.

An Emphasis on Faithfulness
–We are called to be faithful in our service to God, one another and the world, allowing the Lord to determine the level of fruitfulness we are to enjoy.

A Willingness to Change and Innovate
–It is our intent that this Congregation will grow and mature as our ministry develops. Therefore, we must be committed to change and willing to innovate so that we do not place any barriers to growth in our way to becoming the body of believers Christ wants us to be.
–However, our innovation always remains within the purposes and plans given in scripture, and rejects the vain philosophies and empty wisdom of man.
