Vision and Values
Our vision is to know Christ and make him known through the gospel that captivates us and compels us to reach others with God’s truth and grace.
We value the Gospel
The Gospel is the good news that God has sent his only Son into the world, not to condemn it but to save it. John Stott says: “Sin is man substituting himself for God, while salvation is God substituting himself for man.” The true, thrilling Story of salvation runs like a golden thread throughout the Bible and all our ministries. Redemptive history is our history.
We value meaningful relationships
Christianity is not our solo thing with God; we can’t “bowl alone.” Therefore, we are committed to relationships based not on political, economic, or personality similarities but on our shared life in Jesus. Theological unity is expressed through our diversity. Our diaconal (service) ministry helps us care for people in our church and others in tangible, physical ways. Followers of Christ should aim to “befriend the friendless” as he did.
We value personal outreach
We are committed to ministries that call people to know Christ and make him known. We are privileged to be part of God’s reclamation project for us and the world, rejoicing that everything will be summed up in Christ (Ephesians 1:10).
