We want people to see the Lord - lifted up, honored, and cherished. We
speak of His Grace, both locally and globally, allowing Him to display
His character in us with humility, contentment and hope. Romans 15:13, Phil. 1:20, Col.
1:15-18, 4:2-6, 1 Thes. 1:8-10, 1 Pet. 3:15-16
The Bible is God's very words. Utilized by His Spirit it is the primary
tool He uses to grow us. We preach it expositionally, study it, and
discuss it to deeply understand and pursue God.
His mysteries, purposes, and principles give us true direction and
fullfillment for life - Psalm
19:7-11, John 17:17-21, 1 Cor. 4:1, 2 Tim. 3:16-17, 1 Pet. 2:1-2, 2
Reliance on God is fundamental. To know His Heart and seek His will, we
must listen carefully - at all times. - Acts
6:4, Eph. 6:18-20, Col.4:2, 1 Thes. 5:17
In the Bible three words are used interchangeably of leaders: elders,
overseers, and pastors. As such, we do not distinguish between "clergy"
and "laity." Leaders serve Christ as Head of the Body, seek to know and
do His will, and prove themselves examples by godly life behavior and
character. - 1 Tim. 3:1-7,
5:17-18, Titus 1:5-9, 1 Thess. 5:12-13, Hebrews 13:17, 1 Peter 5:1-3
A renovation of heart is expected of genuine believers. Christ "in us"
motivates our actions, attitudes, and words to honor Him and impact
those around us. Our desire is to have Him live in us and through us. - John 14:15, Phil. 1:6, Col. 1:27,
Transformation occurs in community. We are committed to reflecting
God's honor by fostering and protecting an environment of biblical
compassion, mercy, and hospitality, sharing our spiritual gifts and
abilities, and offering our lives, time, and possessions to Him as acts
of true worship. - John
13:34-35, Romans 12:1-21, Eph. 4:325-32, 1 Pet. 4:8-11
