Our

Core Values

Know Us> Our Core Values

The Lordship of Christ

We acknowledge Christ as the head of our church and will submit ourselves

and all our activities to His will and good pleasure. 

Mt. 28:18; Acts 2:36; Rom. 10:9; Eph. 1:22-23; Phil. 2:11; 1 Pet. 3:15

 

Serving Others

Like Jesus, we will aspire to serve, rather than be served, by watching for and

responding to the needs of fellow-believers and those in our community.

Mt. 20:26-28; Mt. 25:34-40; Jn. 13:12-14; Eph. 2:10; James 2:14-17; 1 Pet. 4:10

 

Strengthening Prayer

We will seek understanding of and power to do God’s will by

strengthening our praying, both individually and as a church. 

Ps. 5:3; Jer. 33:3; Mk. 1:35; Lk. 18:1; Acts 2:42; Phil. 4:6-7; James 5:16

 

Christ-honoring Worship

We will pray, prepare for, and glory in worship that stirs our thankfulness,

renews our hope, warns our waywardness, and calls us to fields of service.

1 Chron. 16:29; Ps. 84:10; Ps. 95:1-6; Rom. 12:1; Col. 3:16; Rev. 5:6-14

 

Anointed Teaching and Preaching

We will seek teachers and preachers who give evidence of being called by God

and who are diligent to show themselves approved unto God.

Acts 2:42; 1 Cor. 1:17; 1 Tim. 4:13; 2 Tim. 2:15; Tit. 2:1-8; James 3:1

 

Demonstrating Integrity and Trustworthiness

We will value honesty, authenticity (genuineness), and trustworthiness

in our relationships both inside and outside the church.

Ex. 20:16; Ps. 25:21; Prov. 10:9; Prov. 11:3; Mt. 5:37; Phil. 4:8; Tit. 2:7

 

Mission Involvement

We will take the church’s ministries of teaching, preaching, and caring to our

community and wherever in our country, or beyond, our Lord calls us.

Mt. 10:7-8; Mt. 28:19-20; Jn. 20:21; Acts 1:8; Rom. 10:13-15; 1 Thess. 2:8

 

Strengthening Discipleship

Through Sunday School and other ministries, we will equip believers with sound doctrine, awareness of spiritual gifts, and skills in sharing and defending our faith.

Mt. 28:19; Jn. 8:31-32; Jn. 15:8; Acts 14:21-22; Eph. 4:11-13; 2 Pet. 3:18
