Vision & Values

Loving People to Life

We see a church that is Loving people to life


The Church we see:

Fellowship | Discipleship | Gifts | Evangelism | Worship


We see a church where FELLOWSHIP is engaging, sincere and fun. Fellowship that reflects the love of God and develops lifelong relationships. 


We see a church where DISCIPLESHIP is a journey where we learn to think, act and be like Christ with the mission to equip others to live the way God desires us to live.


We see a church where people are encouraged to discover, develop and use their GIFTS and abilities. We believe all are gifted by God and that God will hold us accountable for how we use the gifts He has given us. God has put a gift inside, but that gift is not for you, it is for the body of Christ.


We see a church where EVANGELISM involves leading people to a personal relationship with Christ, through developing loving personal relationships with them, no matter what their current condition or lifestyle.  


We see a church where WORSHIP is a way of life, an act of daily honor towards Jesus Christ.  


Our vision is birthed out of our purpose.


Purpose:


We exist to fulfill the great commission according to Matthew 28

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:19-20 New Living Translation


Our purpose defines our Mission: 


Mission: Love - Connect - Grow


We LOVE the community around us right where they are, just as they are. We want to demonstrate the acceptance of God’s grace from the first moment of their first contact with us.  


We CONNECT people first to God, then His church and ultimately His destiny for their lives. 


We GROW the body of Christ. We intend to increase the population of heaven and do everything within our power to put hell out of business.



Our values emphasize and remind us of what is important to us and help us define who we are as an organization. (What about... Truth, Bible [Word of God], Holy Spirit)



Core Values:



1 People 


We love people just the way they are. Real people are welcome here.



2 Honor


We stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. Honor is given, not earned. We believe the way we honor others reflects who we are.


3 Empowerment

 

We exist to empower others to do great things for God. We passionately believe that everyone has talents, abilities, and a unique purpose.



4 Excellence


We relentlessly bring our best to whatever we do. We pray, plan, prepare, then boldly act.


5 Leadership


Leadership is influence. We don't boss, manipulate or seek to control anyone. We are all about creating Jesus followers.


6 Creativity

 

We serve a creative God. We think outside the box, color outside the lines, take big risks, and allow God to do something new in us.



7 Growth


We courageously embrace change. In life, change is inevitable but growth is optional. Grow with us.


We pray that with God’s help our values will be communicated with ACTION more than words.
