Living loved by God is the essence of life. The more we experience God’s love, the more we long to:
Love God in return (Worship)
Love One Another as He loves us (Community)
Love Our City to Jesus (Mission)
Additional values flow from and help us live out these core values:
This is His story. We experience our best life for His glory when we find ourselves in Him, as part of His story.
Love does. God's love acted on our behalf. Our love for others must act on their behalf.
We disciple each other to live loved by God and love others as He loves us.
We hope in Jesus not our performance. We don't expect each other to be perfect. We help one another up when we fall and press forward together in Him.
Doing what only God can get the credit for is the most thrilling, God-honoring life. We pray, listen, walk in His power, and take creative risks to bring the gospel to our city.
Community is messy because people are messy. Life doesn’t fit into neat packages, so we count on the unexpected, value people over structures, and stay flexible.
We do this together. Life in Christ is personal but never private. We grow in Christ and fulfill His mission by equipping and encouraging each other to use our gifts to this end.
We live under the light of God's Word. The Bible is truth - the supreme and final authority that informs, guides, and shapes all we are and do as His people.
