Evangelism – We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ. To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.
Excellence – We always bring our best. Excellence honors God and inspires people.
Relevance – We work hard to be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure.
Gratitude – All we have comes from God; nobody owes us anything. We will be grateful and honor others, regularly finding special ways to show it.
Supernatural – We want to give God an opportunity to do what humans cannot, allowing God to use us to bring healing and miracles to those in need.
Sacrifice – We give up things we love for things we love even more. It’s an honor to sacrifice for Christ and His church.
Integrity – We will honor Christ and His church with integrity. If we live with integrity, nothing else matters. If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters.
Service – We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers. The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world. Jesus saves, we serve.
Diversity – We are all created in His image, taking the time to value people from all cultures and ethnicities equally.
Growth – We are intentional about creating a healthy, growing church. When we make disciples our church will grow.
