Our Core Values
We embrace the centrality of the gospel.
This means that we believe that the one beautiful, overarching story of God redeeming and renewing our broken world revealed in Scripture is the central lens through which we look at all of life.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.’”
We embrace the priority of sharing the gospel in word and deed every single day.
This means that we seek to embed generous, hospitable, Spirit-led, and Christ-like rhythms and habits into our lives in order to declare and demonstrate to others the rule and reign of God through Jesus Christ.
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.’”
We embrace relationships beyond Sundays.
This means that we truly want to live out how the gospel unites us into family and transforms us into a redemptive community – not simply coming to church but devoting ourselves to personal relationships and real community – because this is how discipleship happens.
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.”
We embrace being real and not pretending with one another or ourselves.
This means that we come as we are, humbly and authentically confessing our brokenness and celebrating God’s renewing grace because of the forgiveness and freedom found in the gospel.
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
