What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Our Values

Although we are naturally a diverse group of believers, the Lord desires unified diversity to exist in His body. In order to unify our efforts to obey the great commission and the great commandment we hold these 10 Biblical values to be of primary importance. 


The preaching, teaching and study of God's Word which is essential for spiritual growth and transformation in individuals' lives and in the church. (Romans 10:12-15; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)


The Lord Jesus came to seek and to save the lost. Therefore, the church should likewise make this a priority in their ministry. ( Luke 5:30-32; Luke 15; Matthew 18:11-14)


The norm for all believers should be to strive to know God better, to have a deepening personal relationship with Him as well as a whole-hearted devotion to Him. (1 Kings 11:4; Matthew 22:36-40; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 1:21)


United and individual prayer is essential for the powerful working of God in the church. ( Acts 1:14, 2:42; Ephesians 6:18-19; James 5:16-18; Matthew 18:19-20; 1 Timothy 2:8)


Gracious, loving relationships, as well as unity, should characterize the church as we seek to imitate Christ. (1 Corinthians 13; John 13:34-35; 17:20-23; 1:17; Ephesians 4:29,32; Colossians 4:6; Psalms 145:8)


Small group involvement fosters spiritual growth in individuals. (Luke 6:12-13; Acts 2:44-47)


Those whom God has called and gifted should lead the church. ( Acts 20:28; Acts 15; Romans 12:8; 1 Timothy 5:17; Hebrews 13:17) 


The church should function as a community of servants who are responsible stewards of their gifts, resources and talents. ( Romans 12:3-8; 2 Corinthians 8:7; 1 Peter 4:10; Luke 19:11-27)


The church should be culturally relevant in forms of ministry while remaining doctrinally pure. (1 Corinthians 9:19-23; Psalms 119:89; 2 Timothy 2:15)


The Holy Spirit will empower and guide the church as it yields to him and follows his leading. (Ephesians 5:18; Romans 8:14; Galatians 5:16-26; Acts 2; Acts 4:8-13; 31)
