Our mission statement is Building a Lasting Faith in Christ by Serving. As we pursue this mission, we’re motivated to action by these values:
Serving Together – Jesus was the ultimate servant leader. He served us when he saved us by dying on the cross in our place. As Christ-followers, we believe we were saved to serve – to serve God and to serve others. When we serve others unconditionally and put the needs of others ahead of our own, we’re demonstrating the love of God in action. When we do this together, we become the arms and feet of Jesus on earth – and accomplish far more together than we ever could on our own.
Teaching Truth – We believe that the Bible is God’s Word – the guide to living out God’s will in our lives. In order for it to impact us, we have to learn God’s Word, begin to love God’s Word, and then live according to God’s Word – making decisions guided by God’s Word as led by the Holy Spirit.
Strengthening Faith – We believe that as Christ-followers, we should grow to become more like Christ as we advance on our faith journey. But faith strengthening doesn’t happen by chance – it requires planned intentional effort, it involves an incremental process over time, it is personal and unique for every individual, it is practical causing you to get involved, and it is an investment into the lives of real people. But when all is said and done, strengthening faith is well worth the investment into the lives of all involved!
Equipping Families – We believe that nothing is a more clear indicator of our personal faith in Christ than how we live out our faith (or lack of faith) within our families. God created the family before He created the church. He simply organized the church to help strengthen the faith of each Christ-follower so that we can be better equipped to live out that personal faith within our families.
Building Friendships – We believe that every Christ-follower need genuine faith-filled friendships and a place to belong. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 tells us that these authentic friendships strengthen our faith, offer support through difficult seasons of life, and provide spiritual warmth when our hearts grow cold. We value being a church family that helps us all benefit from investing in authentic friendships.
