Our Core Values that drive our mission and vision

Inspiring WORSHIP

Colossians 3:  16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Because worship is at the center of our faith life, we deliberately gather to praise God and to receive and respond to God’s gifts of word and sacrament.

Inspiring Worship is authentic, fresh, and engaging so to enliven our community through the power of the Holy Spirit. There is a deep commitment to unite us in celebration and to engage us in thoughtful dialogue so that we may be renewed in our faith and go out as disciples in service for Jesus Christ.

Relevant FAITH

Acts 2:42-47 “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

The cornerstone of our faith formation begins and ends with the Word of God. Faith is formed throughout the cycle of life as we mature in our understanding and experience of Christ. Through the Spirit we become aware of God’s presence and trust His will for our lives.

Relevant Faith is about practical application of God’s Word to guide and strengthen us amidst the struggles and challenges that life brings. With a vision and a purpose, we offer relevant opportunities for people of all ages, interests, and faith experiences to grow or be renewed in faith.

Compassionate SERVICE

Matthew 25:40 – Jesus said, “‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

Compassionate Service is actively caring about the needs of others.  Therefore, the Holy Spirit prompts us to joyfully do God’s work helping our neighbors in our communities both near and far.

Compassionate service happens when God calls us into the world together, especially as we step into greater uncertainty, discomfort, resistance or sacrifice. When we serve outside of our comfort zone, we may discover unexpected opportunities to transform the lives of individuals, families, communities and the world through Jesus.

Authentic HOSPITALITY

Roman 15:7 – “Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”

Authentic Hospitality expresses God’s invitation to welcome, receive and care - not only for those we know - but also for the stranger and guest. This is so all may know that God in Christ values and loves them.

Authentic Hospitality makes people feel at home in our presence and invites a sense of belonging. We are called to be disciples, sent out by Christ and going out of our way, even when uncomfortable or inconvenient. God uses our relationships with others to expand His Kingdom and receive new lives in Christ.

Contagious GENEROSITY

John 3:16  “For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”

As God so loved the world that He gave His son so that we may have life, so we give our best to bless God and others.  Generosity is contagious and it inspires others to do acts of kindness.    igniting a rippling effect of multiplication right before our eyes! generously share our time, talents and resources

Everything is a gift from God,

As we have received, so we freely give to others our time, talents, and resources to further His kingdom and mission in the world.  When given an opportunity we are eager to be generous and ready to share. (1 Tim 6:17-19)

Christ-Centered RELATIONSHIPS

Hebrews 10:24-25  “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another”.

Christ-centered relationships are God’s vision for God’s church.  United in Christ through baptism, we are brothers and sisters in Christ, called to care for one another like an extended family.

Christ-centered relationships allow us to care for and support one another with love and understanding.  The Church is an extended family where people find genuine, meaningful, supportive relationships built on the foundation of Christ.
