About Us

Our Christian Core Values

Worship

By expressing an attitude of worship. "God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth" (John 4:24).

By attending faithfully. "As usual, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath day and stood up to read" (Luke 4:16).

By living in a Christ-like manner. "Just one thing: live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ" (Philippians 1:27).

By giving regularly. "On the first day of the week, each of you is to set something aside and save to the extent that he prospers..." (1 Corinthians 16:2).

Discipleship

By reading my Bible daily. "This book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to recite it day and night, so that you may carefully observe everything written in it" (Joshua 1:8).

By participating in Bible study. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16).

By memorizing Scripture. "I have treasured Your word in my heart so that I may not sin against You" (Psalm 119:11).

Ministry

By using my gifts and talents. "Based on the gift they have received, everyone should use it to serve others..." (1 Peter 4:10).

By serving our leaders. "And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:11-12).

By developing a servant's heart. "Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus...by assuming the form of a slave..." (Philippians 2:5, 7a).

Evangelism

By doing my part. "The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few" (Luke 10:2).

By inviting the unchurched to attend. "Go out into the highways and lanes and make them come in, so that my house may be filled" (Luke 14:23).

By fulfilling the Great Commission. "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations..." (Matthew 28:19).

Fellowship

By loving other members. "...love one another earnestly from a pure heart..." (1 Peter 1:22).

•By refusing to gossip. "No rotten talk should come from your mouth, but only what is good for the building up of someone in need..." (Ephesians 4:29).

By following the leaders. "Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account, so that they can do this with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you" (Hebrews 13:17).

By being present. "...not staying away from our meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other..." (Hebrews 10:25).
