Core Values

We place high value on the person and work of Jesus Christ because we believe that He is the divine Son of God, Lord of the universe and Savior of all who trust in Him. We are therefore committed to doing all things to honor and serve Him and to help others to know Him personally that they might have the fullness of life.

We place high value on corporate and personal worship because we believe that God is worthy of our praise and we can enjoy a vital intimacy with him known in no other way. We are therefore committed to encouraging worship in forms and contexts that engage people to make whole-hearted expression of praise, and experience humble communion with the living God.

We place high value on the Word of God because we believe that it is God’s revelation of truth to all people in every age. We are therefore committed to the faithful proclamation, teaching and study of the Bible to the end that people will know the truth and build their lives upon it.

We place high value on the church, because we believe that it is God’s primary instrument for bringing salvation to a lost world. We are therefore committed to being Christ’s Body in the world while we enjoy life in the family of brothers and sisters for whom Christ died.

We place high value on believers living as light, salt and leaven because we believe that the church scattered is God’s strategy for reaching an unbelieving world. We are therefore committed to becoming a vital and functioning community of believers so that God might use us to lead many men, women and children to real life and hope in Him.

We place high value on the church’s worldwide ministry of the Gospel because we believe that the church has been commissioned to it by our Lord. We are therefore committed to understanding the part He desires us to play in this global endeavor and to bring devoted attention to the cause of people coming to know Christ in places that are both near and far.

We place high value on spiritual gifts because we believe they are the means by which the power of God is manifested in ministry through the lives of all believers. We are therefore committed to helping believers discover their gifts, passions and style in ministry and to encouraging the use of those gifts in ministry.

We place high value on marriage and the family, because we believe that they are God’s provisions for meeting the most basic needs which he has built into every human being. We are therefore committed to building and strengthening strong, covenant bonds between husbands and wives and to the development of vital relationship between parents, children and siblings.

We place high value on small groups because we believe that biblical community is a fountain of grace which sustains all individuals and ministries of the church. We are therefore committed to involving as many as are willing in participation in koinoinia (fellowship) groups.

We place high value on the pursuit of excellence because we believe that God deserves nothing less from us. We are therefore committed to doing our best in every endeavor for the glory of God who gave His best for us.
