These are the values that shape us. They are deeply rooted in scripture and especially based on the example of Jesus. We both affirm these values and aspire to see them fully embodied in our fellowship.
Jesus is Lord.
Every person matters.
The Bible is our standard.
Jesus is our ultimate authority, but we believe that the Bible is inspired, authoritative, true, sufficient, and powerful. It is the story of God’s people that points us to Jesus. It gives us everything we need to live a Godly life. (2 Peter 1:3; 2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105; Proverbs 30:5; James 1:22)
We celebrate tradition and innovation.
We promote unity and diversity.
When we are the church that loves together, works together, serves together, grows together, then we won’t have time for division or dwelling on our differences. We believe that the Holy Spirit both gives a diversity of gifts and a unity through our one Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. (John 17:20-22; Ephesians 4)
