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.

CONNECTION GROUPS

CONNECTION GROUPS

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.
