Mission and Values: Exalt, Equip and Engage

Exalt Christ:

  • The holiness and love of God met at the cross of Jesus.  Such mercy allows us to enter into a personal relationship with him, and our natural response to this love is worship.  (Romans 12: 1-2) (Psalms 8)
  • Our worship of the Risen Christ is rooted in the authority of the Bible.  We aim to be culturally relevant, without moral compromise.  (II Timothy 3: 16; I Corinthians 9: 19-23)
  • Worship leads to a changed heart which creates the desire and determination for discipleship and service.  (Micah 6: 8)

Equip Disciples:

  • We hold steadfastly to the idea that the Holy Spirit changes hearts.  Through prayer, we invite the Holy Spirit into our discipleship efforts.  (Scripture?) Discipleship is not an accident.  It is a strategic, intentional, and life-long process.
  • We desire for people to make a decision about the claims of Christ, and to confirm this decision with the act of baptism.  (Matthew 28:19)
  • Life change happens when people become accountable for their own spiritual development through the disciplines of Bible study and prayer, and the application of God’s Word.  (Hebrews 4:12-13) 
  • (I Thessalonians 5:17)
  • We believe that when people from all stages of life come together in accountable relationships, it will lead to spiritual growth.  (Galatians 6:1-10)
  • We believe the home is the best place to make disciples.  We want to empower our congregation to make the home a place of discipleship, and assist the family in making disciples.  (Deuteronomy 6: 1-9)

Engage Our World:

  • We believe that God is already working in our world.  He is sending us into our world to serve as his ambassadors.  (II Corinthians 5:11-21)
  • We value coming alongside existing ministries and organizations to work redemptively with them, or through them, to be Christ’s presence.  (Ephesians 2:11-22)
  • We represent Christ’s presence in our community at all times and we desire to instill this idea in our congregation.  (Colossians 3:17)
  • This effort to be Christ’s presence in our community may lead us into uncomfortable, challenging, and faith building relationships.  We are broken people, and we serve in the midst of a broken world.  (Matthew 25:31-46)
  • While we serve without expectation of response, we serve in Christ’s name without embarrassment.  It is our desire that all come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.  (Romans 1:16).
