We seek to passionately love God with all our being—heart, soul, mind and strength. We want to actively devote ourselves to a lifestyle of contagious & authentic worship, evidenced more by what we do than what we merely say. We are created with an insatiable need to worship, and in offering ourselves fully to God, we experience our ultimate purpose in life.
We look first to God for every need. Recognizing that all we have and hope for is given by God, we will press in to know him and fervently seek his wisdom, guidance and power for all that we do.
It is not enough to say we love God. We want to live his love through Selfless acts of service, expressing the truth of God’s Word through our deeds, both locally and globally. We will regularly multiply leaders and churches that do the same.
We seek to touch lives as Jesus did—moved with compassion to help those who are desperate, sick, poor, broken and lost. We will befriend those who are struggling and know what it means to fall. We offer every person the life, healing and forgiveness Jesus gives, without condemnation or judgment. We are committed to infusing God’s life and love into every person we encounter.
Jesus taught that loving God without loving one another is impossible. That’s why we meet regularly in small groups to share life together—the ups and the downs—and to encourage one another to fully mature and live as healthy and free Christ-followers.
The Bible teaches that the measure we use when giving is the measure that will be used to give back to us. We want to break the power of greed in our lives and invest generously in God’s Kingdom by giving freely from our resources—time, talent, and treasure.
We depend upon and diligently seek the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to work in and through us. The church is not a slick institution built by human strategy, but a body of people empowered by the Holy Spirit. We seek to minister in healthy, natural ways through his supernatural power—without hype, manipulation or religious pretense.
