Core Values

WHAT WE BELIEVE

As a part of the Assemblies of God fellowship (www.ag.org), we are committed to a set of fundamental biblical truths. Perhaps a better context for you to understand what we believe is to see those beliefs filtered through a set of core values.  These values are the non-negotiable life principles to which we are committed both individually and as a church family.  We express these core values in everything that we do.


ENCOUNTER GOD
How can I approach God?

Luke 10:17-20
We know that the Holy Spirit has chosen to live inside the Church collectively, and inside the heart of every believer individually. His very presence provides us with a supernatural connection with the Creator of the universe. Therefore, we will always welcome the Holy Spirit to speak to us; to speak through us; and to make His Presence known among us. Our music, our worship, our prayer, and our ministry will express the joy and enthusiasm we feel because of our supernatural connection with God.


CONNECT WITH PEOPLE
Who does God want me to love?

John 17
God Himself lives in community with the Trinity and He wants us to experience community as well. To experience authentic relationships is to know the joy of belonging, the delight at being known and loved, the opportunity for giving and growing and the safety of being accepted without condition.


GROW IN FAITH AND MINISTRY
What does God want me to become?

1 & 2 Timothy
God invites each of us to join Him in a dynamic and deepening relationship. This journey neither begins nor ends at the moment of salvation. It is our deliberate strategy to create pathways of growth through Biblical teaching, Christian accountability, and spiritual disciplines, helping move people to reach their full potential.


LIVE ON MISSION
What am I really here for?

Corinthians 9:14-27
We are convinced that Jesus Christ is the only hope of mankind. Jesus’ last command was to share this “good news” with every person. Our highest purpose is to passionately and deliberately communicate the life-giving message of Jesus Christ, without prejudice or delay. We must lovingly and truthfully represent Him in our community, our nation, and our world. (John 14:6; Matthew 28:19-20; I Corinthians 9:22)
