Standing on Truth
At the foundation of our values is truth. God is truth. God reveals HIs existence in creation as stated in Romans 1, the ability for us to think described in John 1 and in His redemptive work in the New and Old Testaments. The Holy Spirit works in each believer through the Church in the process of sanctification for us to see and know the Truth.
Our hope is to shepherd our members to construct a Biblical worldview that helps them know and find their ultimate satisfaction in God.
God created us for relationships. True Biblical Community or Koinonia Fellowship are for those in spiritual connection with one another. Koinonia fellowship is not to isolate us but to insulate us. We get insulated by surrounding 'selves with God's Family. Biblical Community was one of the utmost priorities during Jesus' ministry and continued to be important in the early church. This kind of fellowship means that we are walking in the Light and Biblical Truth together with a common pursuit to obey God's Will and Word, which is lived out by practicing Agape Love with our neighbors
In the Gospel of Matthew 20: 24-28 we find a pattern from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That pattern is to be servant leaders in the body of Christ and in our local community. We find our identity in Christ and gather each week not only to worship, but to serve the Lord by serving each other.
We believe in Biblical leadership. Biblical leadership is servant leadership. Biblical leadership does not come naturally but has to be taught and modeled. We believe this is part of the discipleship process to train up our Elders, Deacons, Staff and ministry team leaders on an ongoing basis. We want people to take these principles back into other areas of their lives, so that Christ is seen in the workplace and in the home.
The Bible teaches us that God is not only the creator of all things, but the owner of all things. We don't own anything. We're stewards of what God has given us. This is not just our money, but also our talents and time. This means that we not only believe in tithing, but in offering our lives as living sacrifices unto the Lord.
Because of the great commission in Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus has called us to live our life on mission, to share the gospel. Are you living your life on mission? Are you involved in your community? How are you using your talents on a daily basis to grow the Kingdom of God right where you are? You don't have to be a fulltime missionary to be missional. God wants you to impact your workplace, neighborhood, and network of family, friends and business associates with Gospel.
