A Community Compelled by Grace to Grow.
We have six core values.
John 1:1 lays it out plainly for us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” The Word is eternal. The Word is life. Transformation comes when the Word is embraced. This explains why God’s Word is our first value!
Matthew 13, Mark 4, Luke 8, Pslam 119:105, James 1:22
This value confronts the cultural norm of passivity. When you are in public, intentional presence is being aware of the people around you, and understanding that you can interrupt their day with peace, love, joy, and kindness. When you come to church, intentional presence is demonstrated through an eagerness to let God speak to your heart.
Ephesians 5:6-14, Acts 4:13
God detests arrogance; and He is also grieved when insecurity diminishes our life. Humble confidence is the framework we should live from. Humility acknowledges that God is God, that He is sovereign, that He is all-powerful, that we are nothing without Him. When we see who He is, and then who we are in Him, then we live in confidence; humble confidence to be more accurate.
Ephesians 1-3, Isaiah 66:2, Philippians 2, James 4:6
Goodness & Kindness
With a world full of movements, we believe that a movement of goodness and kindness will bring about the greatest change. A life that is lived for Jesus should emanate these virtues
Joy & Laughter
Nehemiah 8:10 gives us the reminder that “…the joy of the Lord is your strength.” We also gain some joyful wisdom from Proverbs 17:22, where we read that “A joyful (laughing) heart is good medicine…” When our heart is filled with the presence of Jesus, we are literally filled with joy and laughter.
Nehemiah 8:10, James 1:3
This means that we never stop craving Jesus. When we pursue Him we are changed and we grow. Ephesians 4:15 explains this virtue with incredible precision: “But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Christ…” When you say yes to Jesus, you say yes to a life of pursuing Him. (It is worth explaining that He is always pursuing you.)
Ephesians 4:15, Matthew 7:7-8, Ephesians 3:18-20
