Values

LIVE BIBLICALLY – We believe the Bible is the Word of God, and we apply its truth to daily life. It is the source of our spiritual nurture, community life, and ministry models.

MINISTER HOLISTICALLY – We meet practical needs, helping people to be holy and healthy in mind, body, and spirit.  We seek the spiritual and social transformation of our community.

EMBRACE DIVERSITY – We practice reconciliation and model God’s Kingdom, welcoming people with disabilities, people of different ages, and people of different ethnic, racial and socio-economic groups.

WALK RELATIONALLY – We involve people in a multiplying network of mentoring relationships, spiritual friendships, small groups, and congregations, living as God’s people in a new community.

ENGAGE GLOBALLY – We are a local church in global mission.  We follow the relational networks of our people to other countries and serve as a sending base for missionaries of different kinds to many different places.
