Values & Principles
These values and principles guide the life and ministry of the church.
We value the accurate and practical teaching of the Bible that encourages the stimulation of the mind and focuses on developing the total person.
We seek to present a Scripture-based, Christ-focused message challenging enough to stimulate growth, while maintaining sufficient simplicity that all may understand.
We value the worship of God as our highest pursuit, both individually and corporately.
We will seek expressions of worship that make it significant to all.
We seek variety, freshness, and creativity in communicating historic Christianity.
We seek flexibility in the structure for worship but seek to avoid disorder.
We value personal faith demonstrated by accepting Christ as Savior and growing in obedience to Christ as Lord.
We seek to live the Christian life with enthusiasm, sincerity, honesty, and authenticity.
We acknowledge our freedom in Christ, but do not use this freedom as an excuse for license.
We encourage questioning as a springboard to finding answers.
We seek to challenge ideas, but never attack or embarrass people.
We value an atmosphere of acceptance of all people and the development of significant Christian relationships that encourage love, care, and accountability.
We seek to respect and dignify each person’s uniqueness.
We seek to value all people equally, especially those often marginalized (for example: children, women, the elderly, single adults, minorities, those who are disabled and those with financial difficulties).
We seek to help each other through all aspects of life: birth, maturation, sexuality, aging, and mortality.
We encourage relationships that go beyond superficial knowledge, to the end that everyone will know and be known by others.
We endorse humor and fun as an integral part of life.
We seek to make graceful changes possible in position, policy, and procedure.
We seek to provide opportunity for participation and encourage involvement without mandating it.
We value building connections to our community, both locally and globally, for the purpose of demonstrating the love of Christ and sharing the life of Christ.
We seek to provide a moral example in our communities in all facets of life: “living in the world, but not conforming to its mold.”
We seek to remain humble and never elitist, basing all our conduct on love that both gives and receives.
We value an approach to ministry where all believers are equipped to serve one another according to their gifts and passions.
