Our Guiding Principles

We are committed to:
 
ENGAGING PEOPLE WITH THE GOSPEL
Matthew 28:18-20 (NASB) 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirt, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
 
 
GROWING TOGETHER IN SMALL GROUPS
2 Timothy 2:2 (NASB) 2 The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
 
 
MOBILIZING PEOPLE TO SERVE Ephesians 4:11-12 (NASB) 11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ
 
 
WORSHIPPING AUTHENTICALLY
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NASB) 24 …and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
 
 
RELATING TO PEOPLE WITH LOVE AND GRACE Ephesians 4:32 1:8 (NASB)
32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
