Giving My Life and Attention to God
We choose to actively respond to God by declaring His worth through a blend of traditional and new songs in contemporary styles. We desire to experience Him through prayer, praise, and giving of ourselves and our resources.
Romans 12:1, Matthew 4:10, John 4:24
Pursuing God to Transform My Life
We understand that growth is a process of being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ through the power of His Spirit, through learning biblical truth in personal devotions, community groups, and corporate teaching. We are committed to uphold our doctrinal statement as the shared conviction of our local body and the test for any doctrine to be taught or promoted.
We believe that our mission is to "Equip the saints to disciple the nations by changing our world here and abroad through irresistible lifestyles and influential works of service." Our vision is to equip the saints through the core values that God has given us in four main areas: worship, community, growth, and service.
Romans 12:2, Ephesians 4:12-15
Building My Relationships With Truth and Accountability
It is our desire to passionately follow Christ by cultivating and nurturing an environment characterized by biblical truth (practical expository teaching and Bible study), caring relationships (prayer and regular fellowship), and spiritual accountability (accountable for our actions and the process of discipline and restoration as seen in Matthew 18:15-17 and Galatians 6:1-5.)
We desire to be motivated by the grace of God; not by performance, guilt, or issues. We see the biblical model of appointed elders is to guide, nurture, and protect the church in unity.
We delegate leadership to community group leaders, to watch and care for those in community. Leadership is to be personally nurtured through mentoring following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ and the apostle Paul.
We see our small groups as the primary means for making disciples, equipping Christians for service and encouraging maturity in our fellowship (1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Hebrews 10:24-25). Community groups echo the direction of the teaching team.
Hebrews 10:25, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27, Hebrews 10:24-25, Matthew 18:15-17 Galatians 6:1
Living Generously With My God-Given Gifts
We desire to utilize our unique calling, design, and gifting to invest in other people by meaningful relationships which we seek to nurture and protect as a ministry team to establish the Kingdom of heaven. We will implement this through serving in community groups, corporate church, learning center, community service, and missions.
Mark 10:45, 1 Peter 4:10, John 13:3-5, Philippians 2:5-8
