About Us

Purpose

Our Purpose is to bring glory to God by completing the work He has given us to do (John 17:4).

Our Mission is to help every person discover and develop a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ as we grow together in grace and truth (Matthew 28:18-20).

Our Core Values

Biblical Authority

The Bible is the Word of God and we recognize it as the final authority for our lives. Christ is the head of the church and He gives vision and direction consistent with the Scriptures. We are committed to communicating God’s Word in a way that ministers grace and urges obedience. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, I Peter 5:1-3 & Hebrews 13:17)

God’s Glory & Power

Every real and lasting accomplishment is the work of God, therefore, He alone receives all the credit. We are committed to being God-centered rather than man-centered. We will depend on God’s power and provision to accomplish everything He calls us to do for His glory. (2 Corinthians 10:17, Psalm 20:7 & Matthew 19:26)

Intimacy with God

God created us and loves us deeply. Through Jesus we are able to have a personal relationship with God. Our love for Him grows as we daily fellowship with God through prayer, listen to Him through His Word and live as He commands. (Mark 12:30, John 15:5 & John 17:3)

Strengthen Families

The first relational structure God established was the family. Our commitment is to build strong nurturing families that will pass on a legacy of faith in Jesus Christ for generations to come. (Eph. 5:31-6:4)

Authentic & Loving Relationships

God created us to have meaningful relationships and love each other regardless of race, gender, or social standing. Our lives will be enriched and others will be drawn to Christ as we invest time getting to know each other, meeting needs, being vulnerable and accountable. (John 15:12, Acts 2:42-46, Galatians 3:28, James 2:1-9 & Matthew 20:1-16)

Invite Others to Follow Jesus

Forgiveness of sin and life God gives us in Christ lasts forever! This good news is too wonderful for us to keep to ourselves and is most effectively shared through personal relationships. Sharing the good news of Jesus is both the responsibility and privilege of every believer. (2 Corinthians 5:20-21 & Matthew 28:18-20)

Nurture toward Maturity in Christ

Recognizing our dependence upon the Holy Spirit, we will intentionally nurture every believer toward becoming more like Christ in his or her character and priorities. (Eph. 4:12-13 & Matthew 6:33)

Serve & Give Joyfully

Jesus came to serve and to give. He has entrusted His followers with spiritual gifts and resources so that every member can minister for the common good of the church as well as care for the poor, needy, widows and orphans. (Mark 10:45, 1 Corinthians 12:4-7, 1 Peter 4:10, 2 Corinthians 9:7 & James 1:27)

Reproduce

Jesus told his followers to keep passing on to others what He had taught them. Therefore, God’s plan for growing His eternal family all over the world is that maturing believers would keep helping other’s know and follow Jesus Christ. Reproduction includes evangelism, discipleship through mentoring, sending missionaries, and starting new churches. (2 Timothy 2:2 & Acts 1:8)
