  • Value 1. Biblical Authority - A Better Way To Do Life

    The Bible is God’s Word and it is our authority for life. If we will adjust our lives (submit) to it, we will find a better way to live. (John 1:14)

  • value 2. Intimacy - "Grace & Truth"

    No matter what you have done wrong, we believe that by grace through faith in Jesus alone, it is still possible to be reconnected back into an intimate relationship with God. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 6, 8)

  • value 3. Apprenticeship - "More Like Jesus"

    Apprenticeship is the process whereby one person becomes more like another person. We believe that the ultimate goal in life is to become more like Jesus. This involves working on the inside of your life to align it with God’s love and truth. It also requires eliminating any automatic responses you have that go against God’s good intentions for you.

  • Value 4. Authentic Community

    We believe that living life together in a safe, loving community is the best opportunity for pursuing truth and grace through intentional apprenticeship to Jesus. (Acts 2:42-47 and 4:32-35)

  • Value 5. Gifted Service – “Purpose and Personality”

    We are committed to being the kind of people who reflect both the purpose and the personality of Jesus by leveraging the gifts Jesus has given us for the benefit of others both inside the church and outside the church. (Romans 12, Galatians 5)

  • Value 6. Excellent Environments

    6. Excellent Environments

    Using our spiritual gifts, talents, abilities, resources, passions and creativity, we believe that it is our role and responsibility to create excellent environments and eliminate any and all obstacles so that people have the best opportunity to encounter Jesus so that He can do what only He can do. (Colossians 3:17)

  • Value 7. Relational Evangelism – “Come and See”

    Because of what Jesus has done for us we believe the most loving thing we can do for others is to go to them and invite them to come and see who Jesus is and what He has done for them. (Mark 2, Matthew 28)
