Mission & Core Values

Our Mission

“Our mission is to live lives of love with God, in community, and on mission.”

 

Our Core Values

Love

We are compelled by Christ’s love in everything we do.

· We respond by giving ourselves to His purposes.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. Mark 12:30-31

We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Truth

We are devoted to the truths of the Bible.

· The Bible guides us in all aspects of life.

Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ John 14:6

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Community

We are committed to each other.

· We care for, encourage and forgive one another.

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.  John 13:34-35

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:12-14

Service

We are dedicated to serve God and others together.

· We strive to meet both spiritual and physical needs.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:18-20

For just as the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many. Matthew 20:28

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24
