our core values (what we live by)
All of our values stem from Acts 2:42-47
42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' 1.teaching and the 2.fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the 3.prayers. 43 And awe[a] came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in 4.common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 5.praising God and having 6.favour with all the people. And the Lord 7.added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
1. Biblical Teaching We live by the book.
We submit ourselves to the Bible as the ultimate authority of God’s revelation for us in Christ. We allow it to transform our hearts and minds to live as Jesus did on Earth
2 Timothy 3:16; Colossians 1:28; Hebrews 4:12
2. Authentic Fellowship We’re lovingly honest.
We live on the outside what’s truly on the inside. We love to fellowship together often (often with food) in service or other events in order to build encouraging, caring, and intentional relationships.
John 4:23-24; Ephesians 4:15; Hebrews 10:25
3. Prayer Prayer is our breath
We see prayer as something that should start drive and complete everything that we do. It is the very air we breathe!
Philippians 4:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; 1 Tim 2:1-4
4. Harmony We love all people
We value and embrace all people because we are all made in the image of God. We embrace people of all backgrounds so that our church family will resemble our surrounding community and that we may live in harmony.
Genesis 1:27; Ephesians 2:14-21; Ephesians 4:1-6; Colossians 3:14
5. Praise We celebrate our Amazing God!
when we praise We are filled with the holy spirit as we magnify Him and how wonderful He is in our
hearts, we praise god through various types of musical and artistic expressions.
Ephesians 5:18-19; Psalm 100:1-5
6. Missional Living We’re telling the world.
Our desire is for everyone to know the good news of Jesus Christ. We communicate His message to those who don’t know it and haven’t heard it in every way we can and in every place we can and equip our family to do it with truth in love.
Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; 1 Peter 3:15-16; Matthew 25: 36
7. Multiplication We’re growing the Kingdom of God
From all of our core values we believe it is our purpose to live these out for multiplication
and replication of the kingdom of God and fulfill the purpose of Christ’s church.
Matthew 24:14; Acts 1:8
