We exist to make disciples who love God, love each other, live on mission. For us to actively live that out, we have to orient ourselves around a set of core values that help keep us centered around what God’s called us to as a church.
We believe that everything points back to the glory of God through the finished work of Jesus in his life, death, and resurrection. That is the foundation of who we are as believers and who we are as a church. We are gospel-centered because the gospel stands at the center of God’s redemptive plan, and in it, we see Him most clearly for who He is and what He has done. Everything we do is built on and flows out of the grace and mercy that’s been extended to us through the finished work of Jesus.
The Bibles holds up the church as a family that gathers both corporately and lives together communally throughout the week for the purpose of growing in personal holiness, love for one another and mission. This means that the weekday is just as important as the weekend. We believe that discipleship happens through relationships, we want to invite people into a community of Christ-followers as the means of discipleship. We want to be a church that lives in authentic, transparent relationships with the ability to be vulnerable. We have created a safe space for this in our Community Groups. These groups are based around where you live so that you can do life together. Growing as disciples of Christ happens by living in community where accountability, love, and service take place as a result of our gospel-identity. We want to put the gospel on display in the way we love one another within our church family (John 13:34-35).
We believe that everything that’s been given to us is a gift from God and that it is our responsibility to steward our gifts for the glory of God. We want to be a church that leverages our time, talent and treasure through love, service, hospitality, and generosity for the sake of our church family and for our neighbors.
The Church is a movement that was established by Jesus, it’s the vehicle He’s given his message to. As those who have been restored through the finished work of Jesus, we have been charged to be ambassadors of restoration to a lost and broken world. Missional living isn’t an initiative, a program or an event, it is a lifestyle. It’s not about adding things to your life it’s about intersecting what you already have with gospel intentionality. In everything that we do, we’re looking for ways to show and share the good news of Jesus to people in our neighborhood, workplace, community and around the world. This is why we exist, the church is God's plan for reaching the world with the gospel! Our goal isn’t presenting information, it’s life transformation. We want to see people surrender to Jesus, be changed by Jesus, and commit to Jesus’ family and mission. We want to be a church that reproduces itself locally, nationally and internationally by making disciples and planting gospel-centered churches.
