What We Value
Spiritual Growth to Maturity in Christ
We believe dependence upon and empowering of the Holy Spirit are essential for spiritual growth. Believers are given spiritual gifts and resources that are to be discovered, developed, and exercised. Spiritual maturity is expressed through service with Christ as our model.
John 3:3,5 Ephesians 4:15b-16

Outreach to Others
We believe Jesus Christ has charged us to make disciples. We are called to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and be a witness for Him in both word and deed as individuals and as a church family. We believe in the support of and involvement in missions both local and global.
We believe we are to be good stewards of the resources God has given to us in time, talents, use of facility and finances. We are to give as God blesses and enables us. The church facility should be modest, functional, and available for ministry and service to the community. We believe in paying for facility without debt.

Worship and Praise
We believe in glorifying God through our personal and corporate worship in both word and deed, stewardship and prayer.

People because People Matter to God
We believe God’s Gift of Grace is for all people. We are called to love and care for others as Jesus did.

Families and Youth
We believe a family provides the best environment for spiritual growth, training and development. We seek to encourage and assist everyone in the church family with the challenge of growth, development, spiritual nurture and care. We believe in the importance of ministry to youth and children.
