These distinctives shape our church’s approach to ministry.
We value a gospel-driven approach to life as opposed to a legalistic one (Romans 8:1). Therefore, we encourage people to live for Christ out of love and thanksgiving rather than guilt and fear.
We value the Scripture as the highest and final authority in matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16). Therefore, we will strive to teach the Bible clearly and faithfully so that unbelievers may find Christ and believers may grow in their relationship with him.
We value worship that is genuine and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1-2). Therefore, we desire to acknowledge God’s supreme value and worth in our personal lives and in the corporate worship of our church.
We value authentic community where people have opportunity to minister to and love one another (Acts 2:22-26). Therefore, we ask all our people to commit to and fully participate in small groups where they may exercise their gifts and experience community.
We value a church where every member has a ministry (Ephesians 4:11-13). Therefore, we strive to equip each unique member to use their spiritual gifts to carry out the ministry of our church.
