Vision & Values

1. The Word

We value the whole counsel of God through expositional preaching of God’s Word chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse. (2 Timothy 4:1-5)

2. Spirit

We value the Holy Spirit’s power to change and transform lives through conversion, conviction of sin, sanctification, empowerment for ministry, and the ongoing work of God on the earth. (Acts 1:8)

3. Worship & Prayer

We value the power and life transforming nature of worship and prayer in changing the world and thus, believe that the church is to be a house of prayer for the nations. (Matthew 6:5-13; 21:12-13; Isaiah 56:7)

4. Discipleship

We value all Jesus followers becoming wholehearted devoted disciples of Christ through coming alive in passionate love for God, for themselves and for others. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 1:17)

5. Home

We value a God-wild marriage, home and family as the foundation of society and the first place for living out our discipleship. (Ephesians 5:18-6:9)

6. Men

We value the building up of men into wholehearted disciples who will develop into mature humble servant leaders in the home, at work and in the world. We value all people, both genders and ages, but we realize that the church is losing spiritual ground with men, thus we will distinctly go after men in our discipleship ministries. (Joshua 1:6-9; Psalm 1; Ephesians 5:25-33; 2 Timothy 2:2)

7. Spiritual Warfare Mission

We believe we were born into a world controlled by the enemy, Satan. We believe in planting churches, preaching the gospel to all nations, and setting the captives free (Luke 4:18-19). But we believe that all mission in word and deed will involve spiritual warfare. God created us to be overcomers in the battle against Satan, demons, and all its strategies. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

8. Peacemaking Relationships

We value peacemaking and unity in all conflicted relationships within our community through honesty and sincerely speaking the truth in love and grace to each other. We embrace the unity and the bond of love that Christ taught us through a “Covenant of Harmony.” (Matthew 5:9, 21-25; Matthew 18:15-20; John 17)

9. Beauty

We value beauty and creativity in all its varied forms, whether in forms of music, media and the creative arts. (Psalms 27:4; 48:1-2; 50:1-2; 90:16-17)

10. Spiritual Disciplines

We value abiding in Christ through the disciplines of prayer, fasting, biblical meditation, solitude, retreat and Sabbath rest. (Psalm 1; Joshua 1:7-9; Mark 1:35; 2:27; John 15)
