Our Vision and Values

The mission of the church is to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20).  To fulfill our missional purpose, we have a vision (the kind of church we want to become) and values (what is important to make the vision become a reality).


A Clear Vision


Real Love

Matthew 22:37–39 (ESV). And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.


Real Change

2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV). Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.


Real Live

Galatians 2:20 (ESV) I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.



What Matters (Our Values)


God

Deuteronomy 6:4–5 (ESV) “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.


People

Galatians 6:2 (ESV). Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.


God's Word

2 Timothy 3:16–17 (ESV)  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

Our Dreams

Connect

We dream of a church that connects all people into meaningful relationships with God and one another, in a caring and loving environment. 

 

Grow

We dream of a church where people are mentored and nurtured in good works and through sound doctrine as they are being transformed into followers of Christ.  

 

Serve

We dream of a church that enables everyone of all ages to discover, develop, and utilize their gifts in response to needs in the church, the community, and the world.


Go

We dream of a church empowered by the Holy Spirit to reach the lost by building relationships, showing love and compassion, and being a light in the darkness.

 

Worship

We dream of a church where people are fully engaged as a way of life in God-focused, Spirit-filled, and Spirit-led responsive worship.
