What We Believe
Our Mission Statement
“To Know Christ and to Make Him Known”
A church that loves people. A church people love. A next-generation church.
10 Visionary Principles:
2 Peter 3:9
We’re for all people because we’re for Jesus, who is for all of us.
Acts 15:19, Mark 1:17
We hold the door, with enthusiasm. The church’s purpose is to help people far from Jesus come closer. It’s our privilege to invite people into Christ’s church.
Romans 14:7, Galatians 5:22
We enjoy serving together. If there isn’t joy in what we’re doing, we’re doing it wrong.
1st Corinthians 13:7, John 13:35
We have eachother’s backs. Our default is to assume the best about each other, because that’s what love does. It’s one important way that love sets the church apart.
Ephesians 4:12, 1st Corinthians 12:14-26
We are spiritual contributors, not spiritual consumers. Everyone has a part to play. There are no unnecessary “body parts.”
Quality over quantity. Constant improvement. We aim for excellence in whatever we do. We do what we do as though we’re working for the Lord.
We stick with Jesus. We look to what he said, and listen for what he’s still saying when we make decisions.
Our worship goes way beyond singing. We want to bring honor to God in the unseen; in our thoughts and attitudes, as well as what can be seen, every action.
Matthew 25:14-30, Matthew 16:25
We are risk-takers in faith. We won’t insult God by “playing it safe.” We’d rather do something imperfectly than do nothing flawlessly.
We give big and we give God the credit. We design our lives around bringing attention and credit to God with our time and money.
