CORE VALUES
  • Christ Centered: To be centered in Christ is to bring Him into our present context. We are convinced that Jesus Christ and His Word is the answer to all the issues that people of our church and community face. We believe that Jesus and He alone gives us a pattern how to live our lives as we follow Him in obedience. 

  • Inclusive: “Making room for all”. We will include all people from every social, economic, ethnic, and age status and every denominational background. We need to reflect our acceptance and sincere love towards our fellow human being as Jesus did, teaching the truth of God's Word 

  • Holistic: Our ministries need not only present the spiritual “BREAD OF LIFE” but also the physical bread that sustains life. More than just trying to bring everyone to heaven, we must also bring a little heaven to everyone. Help where help is needed in various areas of our community. 

  • Relevant: To be relevant in a world under constant change means to be flexible and willing to adapt. While the Word of God is unchanging and timeless, our methods and expressions of faith are flexible and relevant to our neighborhood. 

  • Relational: Our best opportunity for proclaiming the good news comes from our relationship with others. Jesus came in the flesh and lived among people; we should also be among the people creating opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ in real ways. 

  • Missional: It is not enough for us to be a Church that supports mission; we must ourselves be active in God’s mission of making and teaching Disciples. 

  • Infused by the Spirit: Our worship and service will be Spirit filled. We must not only know about God but also be able to experience God. We will be sensitive to the gentle nudges of the Holy Spirit and recognize the gifts and fruit of the Spirit that are given to us.
