Our mission is to equip people to magnify Christ and serve others.
To magnify Christ, we are sent to serve:
the seeking as we proclaim compellingly,
the church as we connect authentically,
the family as we lead faithfully,
the city as we minister compassionately, and
the culture as we engage intentionally.
We value the Bible because we believe it is sufficient, clear, authoritative, and necessary in all that it proclaims. Therefore, we will give it central place in our ministry and strive to teach it with care, authority, and integrity so that many believe in, mature in, and serve Jesus. We will reflect deeply on God’s revelation and allow it to shape all our thinking and vision.

We value a vital Spiritual life among all our people because we believe it is the will of God that we be filled and keep in step with his Spirit. Therefore, to maintain a vibrant fellowship with God, we will seek to connect with him through regular, varied, and fervent prayer.

We value the gospel because we believe it is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. Therefore, we will proclaim the gospel of grace—as opposed to the false gospels of legalism, moralism, or cheap grace—so that people serve Christ from the motivation of love and gratitude, not self-interest, guilt, or condemnation.

We value worship that is authentic and acceptable to God because we believe that we best glorify God by treasuring and delighting in the majesty of who he is. Therefore, we desire to acknowledge God’s supreme value and worth in our personal lives and in our vibrant times of corporate worship.

We value the relationships necessary for true discipleship and evangelism to happen because we believe that God works in people through people. Therefore, we provide opportunities and training for people to connect with one another at the heart level to build one another up in love as they minister the Word to each other.
