Mission Statement

To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of our community and the world.

We will do this through our 9 Core Values:

1) Pray: We are dependent on God for His power and strength and desire to connect with God in a living relationship. (1 Thessalonians 5:17, Philippians 4:4-7, James 5:13-17)

2) Tell: I will tell other people about Jesus because of the excitement I have in my heart for Him. (2 Peter 3:15, Hebrews 12:14-15, John 1:35-41)

3) Welcome: I will invite others in as family and show them hospitality. (Matthew 18:5, Hebrews 13:2)

4) Disciple: I will invest my life in Jesus and others for the purpose of building passionate, devoted, and mature believers in Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18-19, Matthew 16:13-17, Matthew 17:1-11)

5) Involve: I connect and make myself available for Jesus' purposes. (2 Timothy 4:6)

6) Worship: My life bows before God, honors God and lifts God up. God is everything to me. (Psalm 95:6-7)

7) Serve: I am going to show the tangible love of God through acts of kindness in the name of Jesus. (Matthew 25:31-46)

8) Give: I give the best of my self - my resources, my time, and my talents to Jesus - surrendered for his purposes. (Matthew 25:14-18)

9) Glorify: I honor God with my life. (Psalm 86:12)
