THE THINGS WE VALUE AND PRACTICE

BIBLICAL AUTHORITY AND ITS APPLICATION

We are committed to the clear and accurate communication of God's Word in a way that ministers grace and urges obedience.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 | James 1:22

 

HONEST, HEARTFELT, PASSIONATE PRAISE AND ADORING WORSHIP

We are committed to becoming the kind of people the Father is seeking. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.
John 4:23-24

 

PRAYERFULNESS

We believe that God desires his people to pray and that he hears and answers prayer. Prayer changes people - and changed people change things. We are committed to bathing our lives and activities with prayer with the understanding that nothing significant or lasting occurs apart from it.
Matthew 7:7-11 | James 5:13-18

 

THE POWER OF GOD'S PRESENCE

We are committed to the continuation of the rich heritage of the manifestations of the Holy Spirit enjoyed by the church since its beginning.
Ephesians 5:18 | 1 Corinthians 12:31 | Romans 8:12-14

 

THE OPPORTUNITY TO WIN OTHERS TO CHRIST AND DISCIPLE THEM

We are committed to the worldwide expansion of the Kingdom of God. We believe that God desires for us to reach as many as possible with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. It is our intention to fulfill the Great Commission in our generation.
Matthew 28:18-20 | Ephesians 4:12

 

GRACIOUS GENEROSITY

We are committed to living out the dynamic spirit of the cross through selfless, sacrificial, and liberal acts of giving. We believe that it is not only an act of worship but our responsibility to bring tithes and offerings from our substance and freely give ourselves in service to others.
2 Corinthians 8:7-15 | 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 | Malachi 3:10

 

UNITY AND TEAMWORK

We are committed to serving God with oneness of purpose and singleness of heart, pursuing life-changing relationships with those gifted by God to lead us and with one another in the church. We hold the sincere conviction that Christ cannot be faithfully represented to others by a strife-ridden and divided church.
