1. We Value INTEGRITY: “Living Open and Honest.”

“I will be careful to lead a blameless life.” Psalm 101.2

“…so that we could serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness in God’s eyes, for as long as we live.” Luke 1.74b-75
 
We recognize that to follow Christ is a high calling; therefore, we will live lives of integrity on purpose or we will not do it at all. We are committed to maintaining a standard of excellence and accountability with regards to the stewardship of our finances, our time, and our relationships.
 
 

2. We Value PRAYER: “Maintaining a Personal Conversation with God.”

“Offer prayers and petitions in the Spirit all the time. Stay alert by hanging in there and praying for all believers.” Eph. 6.18

“Come near to God, and He will come near to you.” James 4.8a

We are determined to hear God’s voice. We make it a practice to pray about every decision so that we’re living in obedience to God. We want His leading in everything that we do.
 
 

3. We Value WORSHIP: “Recognizing God’s value and worth.”

Lord, no one is like You! You are great, and great is Your mighty name.” Jeremiah 10.6
 
We want our lives to express our complete love, devotion, and gratitude to a supreme God, both
personally and corporately.
 
 

4. We Value PEOPLE: “Connecting through authentic relationships.”

“Finally, all of you be of one mind, sympathetic, lovers of your fellow believers, compassionate, and modest in your opinion of yourselves.” 1 Peter 3.8
 
We will share in Christ-like relationships, speak the truth in love, forgive each other with grace and humility, and grow together in our journeys of faith, always keeping the door open for new believers to join us on our journey.
 
 

5. We Value FAMILY: “Invest in a Legacy.”

“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deut. 6.6-7
 
We believe that spiritually nurturing the family is one of God’s dynamic means to continue the Christian faith.
 
 

6. We Value TRUTH: “God’s Word dares us to see things differently.”

“I was born and came into the world for this reason: to testify to the truth. Whoever accepts the truth listens to My voice.”.” John 18.37

Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
 
We recognize that God’s Word, and what it teaches, is the catalyst for transformation.
 
 

7. We Value DISCIPLESHIP: “Our journey to become like Jesus.”

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ.” Eph. 4.15
 
We desire everyone to continually grow in their faith and knowledge of God; to become like Jesus together.
 
 

8. We Value TEAM: “Equipping people to reach their full potential.”

“…being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.” Phil. 2.2

“As a result of all this, my loved brothers and sisters, you must stand firm, unshakable, excelling in the work of the Lord as always, because you know that your labor isn’t going to be for nothing in the Lord.” 1 Cor. 15.58
 
We recognize that our strength is realized when we all work together in unity using our unique gifts and talents that God has given us to accomplish the call to serve.
 
 

9. We Value MISSIONS: “Reaching people both near and far.”

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1.8
 
We will demonstrate God’s love through our actions, our words, and through our generosity. We will intentionally build relationships with others to reach them with the Good News of what Jesus has done.
