CORE VALUES

CORE VALUES

WORSHIP. CONNECT. SERVE.

Our Core Values answer the “why” question? Why are we doing this? Because we want to make disciples who reflect the character, life, and mission of Jesus. As we look at the Gospels we see Jesus dwelling in three different relationships: with the Father (worship), with the disciples (connect) and with the world (serve).

CONNECTION GROUPS

CONNECTION GROUPS

LIVING LIFE TOGETHER IN COMMUNITY

Much of the success of the incredible movement of the Gospel found in the New Testament church was that followers of Jesus were living life together in community. Acts 2 describes the new believers meeting with one another day to day in their homes and at the temple.

DISCIPLESHIP

DISCIPLESHIP

WHAT IS A DISCIPLING CULTURE?

We were created to reflect the life, character, and mission of Jesus. To have compassion like he had compassion. To heal like he healed. To love, care, and speak with authority into peoples’ lives like he did.
