Core Values
Worship: “Exalting God with our lives and our praise”
 
Through music, study of the Bible, and service we give honor
and glory to God.  In doing this we find that we grow closer
to Him, we are strengthened, and we are encouraged to tell
others about our relationship with Him.
 
Prayer: “Acknowledging our dependence on God”
 
Prayer is our way of communicating with God. Through prayer
we are able to find strength and grace as we go through the
ups and downs of life. Through prayer we can take our needs,
or the needs of others, to God as we acknowledge our need
for Him to be at work in us and through us
 
Outreach: “Introducing those next door and around the world to Jesus Christ”
 
Because of God’s great love for us and as we grow in our
relationship with Him, we want others to know about His love
for them. We seek to make His love known through the
various ministries in our church and in our community. We also
have a strong commitment to missionary work both in America
around the world.
 
Discipleship: “Teaching and preparing people to follow Christ”
 
We seek to grow in our Bible knowledge and relationship
with God. The Bible is our authoritative Truth for learning,
living, and loving God. We seek to make disciples that
make disciples that make disciples.
 
Stewardship: “Managing all that God has given us according to His principles”
 
Everything we are and have is a gift from God for us to
oversee and manage. We seek to be good managers of our
time, talent, and treasure. This includes cheerfully and 
generously giving back to Him a portion of all that He has
entrusted to us. The benefits of being a good steward are
good for us and glorifying to God.
 
Community:  “Showing Christ’s love to one another”
 
Our sense of community helps to create a warm, friendly,
family environment to learn and live. God’s love for us is not
passive and therefore our love for others cannot be passive.
Therefore, by God’s grace, through a variety of ministries,
we seek to meet the needs of those within our church
congregation and those within our community.
