We seek to be open, engaging, relevant and authentic in our approach to church and faith.

Our Values

loving God

God centered: revering the Father, Son, and Spirit

in lives of worship and prayer. (Psalm 29:2)

Spirit led and biblically anchored: walking by the Spirit

in accordance with His word. (1 John 3:24)

Faith filled: living lives of expectant faith

in obedience to God’s direction. (2 Cor 5:7)


loving His Church

Committed to community: believing in the church as an authentic, inclusive, and healing family. (Heb 10:24-25)

Transformational: encouraging the development and growth of all believers to become more like Jesus. (2 Cor 3:18)

Gifted to serve: empowering every believer in their God-given gifts for the benefit of the whole body. (1 Peter 4:10)

loving His World

Gospel focused: living lives of everyday mission, seeking

to share and be the gospel. (Matt 28:19)

Culturally aware: seeking to communicate eternal

Truth in ways all people understand. (1Cor 9:19-23)

Committed to those in need: serving the whole community, particularly those on the margins of society recognizing everyone’s worth as an image bearer of God and their need to be restored to Him. (Isaiah 58:6-11)
