“Where there is no vision, the people perish” . . . Proverbs 29:18 (KJV). We are blessed with a clear vision from God as well as God-directed leadership.
Our vision is simple – it is to “reach the lost at any cost”. We “embrace” that vision by getting connected to it, we “energize” that vision by preparing for it, and we “execute” that vision by involving ourselves in it.
Our approach to ministry is based on 16 underlying core values. . .
Application of Scripture – Making scripture a part of life. God wants His truth turned into action and His doctrine turned into deeds.
Service – We exist to serve. The highest calling of any Christian is to be a servant.
Excellence – We strive for excellence in everything we do—connecting, growing, serving, sharing, and worshipping.
Feedback – “A fool thinks he needs no advice, but a wise man listens to others…”. We encourage honest feedback.
Authenticity – We are intentionally transparent. We permit ourselves to be vulnerable, we want to be exactly what we appear to be.
Informality – We are a church without pretense. We purposefully remove barriers so that people will feel open, casual, and welcome.
Giftedness – We build on strengths so that weaknesses become irrelevant. Our objective is to find, free, release, and liberate your gifts.
Differences – We respect individuality and “accept one another just as Christ has accepted you.” We compliment and not compete.
Learning – We believe learning is an on-going lifestyle and that God desires that we continuously seek Him, His Word, and His Ways.
Simplicity – We pursue simplicity in everything we do. Our challenge is to keep our service simple, yet worshipful.
Teamwork – Jesus sent people out in two’s. His point, we could face any ministry challenge when we share responsibility and work together.
Innovation – We are not intimidated and not afraid to try something new. Failure is not reaching a goal; it is not trying at all.
Humor – Humor is the ability to laugh at yourself. Too often, we take ourselves too seriously and don’t take God seriously enough.
Optimism – This is just another word for faith. That is, believing that God not only can do it, that He will do it, or that He is doing it.
Growth – Our motto “Win the Lost at Any Cost.” If Jesus thought enough of a soul to die for it, we can ensure the world knows about it.
Commitment – There is no greater commitment one can make, then to give yourself to Christ. We challenge and help people do that.
