Core Values
 

Our Core Values serve to focus and unite our efforts through the acronym “LIFT”.

Loved people lift people. (We Serve)
Jesus said, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
 
We are committed to loving and serving others.
 
Inspired people include people.” (We Welcome.)
 
“Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7

 

Though the power of the Holy Spirit, we are called to be faithful to Jesus’ example of radical hospitality to all persons.

 
"Fulfilled people are faith-seeking people.”(We Grow)
 
“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18.

 

Only through faith in Christ can we live truly fulfilled lives. As disciples of Jesus Christ we strive to practice the marks of Christian discipleship so that we are continually growing in grace and knowledge through daily prayer, weekly worship, small groups, reading the Bible, Holy Communion, serving and giving.

Transformed people tell people.” (We Share)
 
Jesus gave us the Great Commission:

 

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Out of gratitude for what Christ has done for us, we share our stories with others regarding the difference both he and the church has made.
