Because we value salvation, we will deliberately focus on introducing others to Jesus through evangelism and seeing lives changed.
[John 3:16] “For God so loved the world that he grace his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Because we value worship, we give of ourselves to a worthy God – to “worship Him in Spirit and truth” in order to encourage others to enter into worship with us.
[John 4:23-24] “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers that Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”
[Romans 12:1-2] “Therefore I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Because we value relationships, we focus on our individual relationship with Jesus and then on building healthy marriages, families and friendships.
[Hebrews 10:24-25] “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Because we value the Next Generation, we are dedicated to equip and train them so that they can experience salvation and the power of God to fulfill God’s plan for their lives.
[I Timothy 4:12] “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”
Because we value missions, we believe in faithfully spreading God’s Word both locally and around the world, so that no one should perish.
[Mark 16:15] “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”
[Acts 1:8] “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
[II Peter 3:9b] “…He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
