Truth: The Bible is the very Word of God—active, living, and able to change lives. For that reason we teach the Word, preach the Word, share the Word and try to live out the Word of God in our talk and our actions.
Kindness: Jesus is the greatest, most complete picture of kindness we will ever know. Thankfully God didn’t treat us as we deserved (Romans 3:23). Kindness is understanding, it is compassion, and it is action-oriented. “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:23)
Resilience: Growth is painful and pain is something we are conditioned to fix, instead of endure. Paul uses the word “hope” three times in Romans 5:1-5. Hope is the anchor to our faith journey. We are resilient because of hope.
Growth: Jesus commissioned the Church to “make disciples” (followers). Our goal is not just about head knowledge—although important; but our ultimate goal is heart transformation. The Old Testament is the story of God saying, “Trust Me”, while the New Testament is the story of God saying, “Follow Me.” Spiritual growth means we are becoming, we are looking and acting more like Jesus.
Outreach: Luke 19:10 says, “For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.” We believe that Christ’s command to take the good news of salvation to the world needs to be a top priority. We believe that we have been called to be the hands and feet of Jesus, to seek those who are far from God, because God loves them and wants them to come home.
