To be a church family joined together in Christ—to know Him and make Him known.
Radical Hospitality — "Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." (Romans 15:7)
Not only do we enthusiastically welcome all to worship with us, we endeavor to go out of our way to give everyone a warm, hospitable welcome into our church community and extend the love of God to everyone we encounter.
Passionate Worship — "How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the LORD." (Psalm 84:1-2)
Through passionate worship we encounter the life-changing presence and power of God and we grow in relationship with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. As a church we seek to facilitate engaging worship experiences that are genuine, vibrant, creative, and comprehensible. †33
Intentional Faith Development — "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." (Acts 2:42)
We believe that "growing in Christ-likeness is the goal and end of the life of faith . . . As we mature in Christ, God cultivates in us the fruit of the spirit: 'love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.' [Galatians 5:22-23] . . . The practice of learning in community gives disciples a network of support encouragement and direction as we seek to grow in Christ." †64-65
Risk-taking Mission & Service — "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me." (Matthew 25:40)
Extravagant Generosity — "You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity." (2 Corinthians 9:11)
