We will boldly rely upon God’s Word for our belief and practice in all areas. We believe that God’s Word is totally true, reliable, and eternal even in an ever-changing society that craves relativism. We will not tickle ears but trust God to transform lives with His truth.
We exist for the benefit of those who know Christ and those who do not have a relationship with Christ. We will do anything short of sin to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To reach people no one is reaching, we must do what no one else is doing. We will not cater to personal preferences in our mission to reach as many people as we can with the truth of Jesus Christ. We are just as concerned about those beyond our walls as we are those within our walls. We also believe that the best context for a person to know Jesus Christ is a personal relationship.
We will partner with people so they can reach there full potential in Christ. Church is not about whom you know but how you grow. We will offer opportunities for you to become a fully devoted follower of Christ. We are committed to growing your spiritual life in the same way you are committed to raising your kids. We want to see you grow up in the faith.
Trust In Christ
We will do it Christ’s way since He is Lord and knows what is best for our lives. We will happily live a life that seems upside down but is really right side up. We strongly believe that your next days can be your best days when you learn and live and believe that God is telling the truth in His word. We will give up the things we love to please Christ, whom we should love the MOST.
We will love people even when they are unlovable. We believe there are many things you can do by yourself but growing spiritually is not one of them. We want to be contenders for the faith together rather than pretenders by ourselves. We want to be a church where no one travels alone. We believe everybody seems normal, until you get to really know them. We will love people even when we really get to know them! All of us would be a total mess if Christ did not give us the potential to be totally changed.
Our staff and church will go above and beyond to give sacrificially to the work of God in our city. We will give so much to our church, community, and cosmos that it makes them think we have an ulterior motive. We will water the world with the love of Christ, knowing that we will ultimately be watered as well. We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.
We will do all within our reach and resources to engage the whole person in worship. We place a disproportionate value on creating a worship experience that boldly celebrates Jesus and attracts people far from God. We will facilitate environments that effectively connect with our target audience. We will welcome the use of the arts to demonstrate the awesomeness of our Great God.
We will equip people to be participators instead of the spectators. We really believe that God has given every believer a spiritual skill set to contribute to His Kingdom. We will function as spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers. Mature believers know they exist to make a difference in the lives of others.
In order to dominate a city with the gospel of Jesus, we can’t think small. We will set impossible goals, take bold steps of faith and watch God move. We will run to God with our greatest challenges instead of running away from God when life happens. We believe that speaking to your mountains in faith will cause the most impossible things in the world to become possible.
We will always bring our A game. We will go the extra mile for the glory of Christ. We are committed to maxing out our lives everyday to demonstrate the glory of God. Simplicity enables excellence. We will always maintain a posture of learning. We seek to learn from everyone and incorporate a variety of influences into our methodology.
We will passionately follow our Pastor as He follows Christ. We will live a normal Christian life by honoring unity. We will aggressively defend our unity and that vision. We will deal boldly and swiftly when disunity pierces our unity.
