“We exist to glorify God by helping people
become mature and equipped followers of Christ”
1. DISCOVER the grace that changes everything
2. BELONG to a community founded on grace
3. GROW in the grace of Jesus Christ for a lifetime
4. MULTIPLY as followers of Christ who make disciples
V1 - Word-Based– We humbly submit ourselves to the Bible as the unchanging truth of God in an ever-changing culture, and the foundation of all we do.
V2 - Gospel-Centered – The gospel – the good news of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection – is the power for transformation and THE main thing at the heart of everything we do.
V3 - Faith-Dependent – God calls us to walk by faith NOT by sight. As a church, this means that all we undertake is rooted in prayer and doomed to fail unless the Lord is in it.
V4 - Relationally-Driven – Relationships are the context for transformation. The church is a diverse group of people called to live together in a covenant community. We learn from one another, care for one another, and are blessed by one another’s gifts, ages, and stages in life.
V5 - Others-Focused – As a church, we do not exist for ourselves but are committed to following Jesus in his example of serving the needs of others with the love of Christ.
V6 - Kingdom-Minded – God’s mission is bigger than us. We celebrate the work God is doing through other churches and organizations as co-laborers, not competitors, and seek to partner with them in accomplishing God’s mission.
V7 - Historically-Rooted – We recognize that we are part of a story that is bigger, broader and older than our own moment in time. As a church, we are part of a denomination (PCA) that is connected to a theological movement that is rooted in the Protestant Reformation.
