Our Values

Passion for God

We love God with our hearts, souls, minds, and strength. We seek a close personal relationship with Jesus, and to grow in emulating His attributes and living His love.

Psalm 40:8, 42:1–2; Matthew 22:37–38; 1 John 5:3; Galatians 5:22–23

Pursuing God’s Spirit

We desire to know and understand the truth of God’s Word, the essence of His divine nature. We value the foundational principles of the written Word, hearing from God, and following His guidance.

Psalm 1:2, 119:105; John 14:23; Colossians 3:16; Acts 2:17–18; John 4:24

Discipleship

We encourage individuals to follow Jesus according to the personal call He gives them, and to enact their commitment to God’s will for their lives.

Luke 9:23; John 13:35; 2 Timothy 1:9; John 8:31–32; Romans 12:1–2

Love for humankind

God’s unconditional love for humanity that knows no boundaries of race, creed, or status, motivates and guides us to help meet the needs of those we come in contact with, whether spiritually or practically.

Matthew 5:14–16, 9:36, 25:35–40; 2 Corinthians 5:14a; Ephesians 5:1

The power of one

We value each individual and his or her unique talents, skills, and strengths. We believe that every person can contribute to changing the world by changing one heart at a time.

1 Corinthians 1:26–29; 1 Samuel 14:6b; Romans 8:31; John 15:16; Philippians 4:13

A sense of community

We believe that our faith is meant to be lived in community and camaraderie with others. We seek to cultivate a spirit of unity, love, and brotherhood. Together we can do more.

John 15:12–13; Galatians 6:10; 1 John 3:16; Psalm 133:1; Galatians 6:2

Spiritual solutions

We apply spiritual principles to everyday challenges to overcome obstacles, resolve conflict, maximize potential, and heal hearts. We seek to share our spiritual wealth and knowledge with others.

John 6:63; 2 Corinthians 1:4; Luke 4:18; Hebrews 13:16; John 14:12

Diversity and innovation

In ministry and mission service, creativity and personal initiative are highly valued. When God guides, and we take action to follow Him, anything is possible.

Ecclesiastes 9:10; 1 Corinthians 12:4–7,11,12; Ephesians 3:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:6; Matthew 19:26

Living “as unto Him”

We put our faith into action and reach out to weary and troubled hearts, the disadvantaged, downtrodden, and needy, as unto Jesus.

John 13:15; 1 John 3:16–18; Matthew 25:40; 2 Corinthians 4:5, 5:20

Beliefs

More…
  • Our fundamental beliefs are generally in accordance with those held by Christians the world over; we also embrace some untraditional doctrines. Our application of the foundation principle of God’s Law of Love that Jesus taught—to love God, and to love our neighbor as ourselves, which He said fulfills “all the law and the prophets”—is a defining feature of our lives and our faith.
