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.

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.
