Foundational Principles & Values

Our Foundations Principles and Values are the foundation upon which this house is built.

1. We will stand for truth:

  • Our statement of faith is a living expression of the doctrinal foundations upon which we stand.

2. We will establish our unity in our Christ-centered vision:

  • We experience unity in the midst of diversity as we are fitted together in Christ.
  • We are vision led rather than issue, opinion, need, or comfort level driven.

3. We will depend on God in prayer:

  • Our life and vitality as a congregation is dependent upon prayer.
  • Prayer is not peripheral to our programs, it is the atmosphere in which our programs will be fruitful.

4. We will value healthy congregational life:

  • We will seek wholeness for individuals and the whole congregation.
  • We believe that wholeness is developed in the context of relationships and we will care for one another in spiritual and practical ways.

5. We will make disciples:

  • True discipleship is both knowledge and relationship oriented.

6. We will value every member as a minister:

  • We are all called to do our part that the whole work will be done.

7. We will equip and empower:

  • Our leadership has the responsibility and authority to lead the body and equip it for the work of ministry.
  • Spirit empowered and directed, congregationally responsive and recognized leadership is a gift from God to the body for the building up of the church.

8. We will be a force, not a fortress:

  • We will be proactive and not reactive in the world.
  • We will actively seek to expand the Kingdom of God from our neighborhoods to the nations.
