Grace

Ephesians 2:8, 4:32; Colossians 3:12-14, 4:6

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Because we are accepted by God’s grace alone, and not by works, we will be a community that extends grace to imperfect people in tangible ways.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Truth

Luke 24:27; 2 Timothy 3:16

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Because God has spoken, revealing the epic story of the suffering and glory of Jesus, we will trust God’s true and authoritative word as our source for all life and godliness. We will seek to understand God’s truth with an attitude of humility, knowing that all truth comes from Him. We value expositional preaching so that the content and intent of our sermons are guided by the content and intent of biblical passages.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Transformation

Romans 1:16; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18, 5:17; Galatians 2:19-20

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Because we believe in the life transforming power of the gospel, we will grow as followers of Jesus as we allow God’s word and Spirit to transform us inwardly and outwardly

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Worship

Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 8:8-9; 2 Corinthians  9:7

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Because Jesus died and rose again to give us eternal life, we will joyfully worship God with all of our lives, as individuals and as a congregation, for God’s glory and for the sake of the gospel

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Prayer

Luke 18:1; Philippians 4:4-7; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Because God has freely extended his love to us through Christ, we will freely take our praise, requests, doubts, confession and thanksgiving to Him in prayer

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Reconciliation

2 Corinthians 5:18-20; Ephesians 2:14-17; Colossians 1:19-23, 3:15

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Because Jesus’ mission was the reconciliation of all things to Himself, we will live as those reconciled with Christ and seek reconciliation in all our relationships through continual repentance and forgiveness.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Community

John 1:1-4; Romans 12:9-13; Philippians 2:5-11

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Because Jesus left the perfect community of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit to create a new, radically loving and generous community on the earth, we will pursue deep, transparent relationships as we grow together in Christ.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Evangelism

Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 19:10; John 1:1-4; Acts 1:8; Galatians 4:4-5

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Because Jesus was sent into the world to save those who could not save themselves, we will be missionaries sent into the world to tell those near and far that Jesus saves.
