Values and Beliefs

GIVE

When we give to others we unveil their significance and worth, intrinsic value and purpose, and we communicate to them – “You are Loved!”

We are a people marked and changed by that action – GIVE! God has given us His very best in His Son Jesus and our desire is to be a people who will GIVE from what we have received! We dream of a church who will GIVE with great faith, unwavering hope and relentless love so that others would know what Jesus has given them!

Generosity Gives a Voice to Love

Generosity Gives a Voice to Love

Generosity requires loving fully – it’s about the expression of God’s heart to and through us
Generosity requires building bridges – it’s about the connection to people
Generosity requires sacrifice – it’s about the standard with which God gave to us

We will live generously; not with closed fists but rather with open hands.

Innovation Gives a Way for Faith

Innovation Gives a Way for Faith

Innovation requires our best while trusting God’s best – it’s about what the Holy Spirit can do
Innovation requires valuing mission above comfort – it’s about people encountering Jesus
Innovation requires that we face our giants – it’s about living out of faith rather than fear
We will be innovative as God’s Spirit leads us into places that are unknown, so that He may be known.

Vision Gives Direction for the Present

Vision Gives Direction for the Present

Vision requires our vulnerability – it’s about trusting the One who leads us when we don’t know where He’ll take us
Vision requires our focus – it’s about living fully in the present as much as it is looking to the future
Vision requires a light source – it’s about Who we see that helps us to interpret what we see

We will keep our vision on Jesus so that we can join Him where He goes, echo what He says, reflect what He does and go when He moves.

Empowerment Gives Hope for the Future

Empowerment Gives Hope for the Future

Empowerment requires a servant’s heart – it’s about what we can pour into people rather than we can get out of them
Empowerment requires our availability – it’s about the what the Holy Spirit does through our efforts
Empowerment requires trust – it’s about people finding freedom and realizing identity above people management

We will rely on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to serve people so that they might become awakened to God’s love and call on their life.

About the Bible

The Scriptures are God’s word written to us and for us. It’s a true account of history penned by human authors who were inspired by God. The Bible shares the story of God and mankind, revealing the heart of our Heavenly Father and the truth about life. Because it is God’s word it is the source for truth, knowing God and Christian living.

About God

We believe in one eternal God who created all things. He exists and makes Himself known as Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit.

About You, Me & God

We believe that each of us were made in the image of God for relationship with Him. Sin entered the world through Adam who believed the lie from Satan that God could not be trusted. That distrust led to disobeying God and consequently resulted in a broken relationship with Him. God gave us His Son, Jesus, to redeem us from the penalty of sin, and restore us back into relationship with Him.

About Jesus

We believe Jesus is the way for redemption for all humanity. Jesus, God’s only Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the virgin Mary being fully man and fully God. He lived a sinless life that was given for the world so that those who believed in Him would have eternal life. Jesus gave His life completely to the point of dying a criminal’s death. Abandoned by His closest friends, He paid the price of our sin so that we could experience freedom from the consequence of our sin (eternally separated from God) and into new life both now and forever. Jesus rose again from the dead three days later and appeared to His disciples many times before ascending to the right hand of the Father where He continues to pray for us.

About the Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit was promised by Jesus as a gift from God to be our Helper. He convicts us of sin, points us to Jesus and helps us to know and be an expression of God’s heart according to who He made us to be. When we choose to follow Jesus, the Holy Spirit lives in us. He helps us in our weaknesses so that we may live with supernatural love that calls us to live beyond our own capacity. The more we give freedom to God’s Spirit over our lives, the more He changes us into the likeness of Jesus. The Holy Spirit also gives us spiritual gifts for the purpose of encouraging and revealing God’s heart to people.

About the Church

Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit empowering the local church to be a witness to the life of Jesus. The local church exists to gather together for encouragement, study the Scriptures, praise and worship, prayer and the teaching and preaching of God’s Word. Each person has a significant place in the church for accomplishing the Great Commission of showing people how to follow Jesus (make disciples).
