We are a very family-oriented body of Christ and welcome all to come visit us. This past summer we were blessed with the opportunity of teaming up with the Institute of Biblical Leadership and put our core values down in writing to better share who we are as a church.
LOVE – Because we value love, as God loved the world and showed us unconditional acceptance, we are united as one into a community of believers who demonstrate the love of God toward all. We support one another by showing patience, understanding, and kindness. Just as God loved us first, we seek opportunities to establish relationships honoring God’s Word. Love never fails. (John 3:16, 1 John 4:19, 1 Corinthians 13:8)
INTEGRITY – Because we value integrity as one body under God, we conduct ourselves in a Godly fashion at all times. We transparently present the truth in love, honesty, and humility. We are led, courageously, by the Holy Spirit and the Bible, which is the Word of God. (1 Kings 9:4-5, Proverbs 11:3, Ephesians 4:15)
SERVICE – Because we value service, with Christ as out foundation and ultimate example, we follow Him. We are called to be His servants by being His voice, hands, and feet, and we surrender all we are, and all we have, to serve others for the glory of God. (Matthew 20:28, Hebrews 13:21, 2 Timothy 3:17, 1 Peter 4:10)
FAMILY – Because we value family, we love in truth with open hearts and compassionate service. We hold ourselves accountable to welcoming everyone, listening with genuine concern, and sharing our relationship with Jesus Christ. (Romans 12:10-13)
