Four Core Values

Jesus is the Center

God’s incredible and free gift through faith in His only Son, Jesus Christ is abundant life with Him now and eternal life in Heaven. Once we accept Jesus as our personal Savior, we show our love for Jesus by following His teachings and commands in an effort to become more like Him every day.

The Bible is Our Supreme Source of Truth

The Bible is the core of our teaching and is foundational to all we believe, say, and do. We believe the Bible is God’s divine source of truth. It points us to the ultimate communication of who He is in Jesus Christ. 

Loving Community

We commit to love and care for each other because of God’s great love for us. We seek God’s way together through prayer, we remain open to correction, bear with each other, and maintain the unity of the body even when the going gets tough.

Sacrificial Generosity

We aspire to be even more sacrificially generous investors of the time, abilities, and financial resources entrusted to us because of the incredible gift and sacrifice that was made for us by Jesus on the cross.
