Things We Value

Things We Value

What a church looks like is determined by what they value. Values are not doctrine, but they flow out of it. They are not programs, but they compel them. Our values describe the way we do church. They help determine our church’s schedule, budget, staffing, and ministries. Space does not allow us to unpack these sufficiently, but here they are nonetheless.

Being real — We reject all forms of religious hypocrisy. We are sinners saved by grace. (Psalm 51)

Respect — All people are made in God’s image and worthy of our love. (Galatians 3:18)

Everyone serving — Church is not a spectator sport. We ‘do’ church; not ‘go to’ church. (Romans 12:5-6)

Ongoing Christian formation — We never quit learning and growing in Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 3: 18)

Cultivated servant leadership — Strong, humble leaders are critical to the mission of our church. (Philippians 2)

Faithful prayer — We accept God’s gracious invitation to commune with Him for Life. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Biblical truth — The Bible is our sole rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16)

Unity — We support our leadership and our vision; striving for one voice and mission. (Romans 15:5)
