Help people become fully devoted followers of Jesus.
We exist to help people become everything God created them to be. We do this by helping people know God, find freedom from the struggles they experience, discover the purpose for which God made them, and live out their purpose to make a difference in the church and in the world.
The overarching Core Value is LOVE—our total commitment to the well-being of others.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Specific values are taken directly from Acts 2:41-47. Verses are referenced after each value.
41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were
added to their number that day.
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking
of bread and to prayer.
43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.
44 All the believers were together and had everything in common.
45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.
46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.
They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,
47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number
daily those who were being saved.
