those things which define us...


Values are statements of those things which define us. They are the few things which are at the core of who we are, and consequently, rarely change. They define how we establish priorities, and use our time, talent and treasure.

The Trinity
Valuing God for who He is: Father, Son & Holy Spirit, for all He is – Our Creator, Our Savior, Our Sustainer; 
Who is worthy of our love, honor, respect, adoration and worship (Mark 1:9-11; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:19)

Relationship with God
Our relationship with God is the very fabric of our lives; and we seek to be lovingly devoted to Him, 
going beyond just religious practices into incarnational living (Matthew 22:34-40; John 14:6)

Life Together in Community
Reflecting God who is, has always been and always will be, a Community – Father, Son & Holy Spirit; living a shared life together in Him; interacting as we walk the Way together; being & doing, caring & sharing; with no limits 
(Acts 2:42-47; Matthew 12:46-50; 1 Peter 2:4-5)

Partnership in the Kingdom
This means serving alongside God, each other and other churches in living everyday life as well as for the advancement of God's Kingdom purposes. Living in His Kingdom, seeing His dominion demonstrated and extended; within us, our families, our Community, our towns – seeing it multiplied to the ends of the earth (John 5:19; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 1 Peter 3:15)

Actively, intentionally following the way of Jesus every day – individually, as families and as a Community; becoming disciples and making disciples, pursuing Him through eight core spiritual disciplines:
Prayer (Mark 1:35; Matthew 6:5-13)
Scriptural Study (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Worship (John 4:23-24; Psalm 150:1-6)
Reflection (Joshua 1:8; Psalm 119:148, 145:5)
Fasting (Matthew 6:16-18)
Community (Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:23-25)
Serving (Matthew 25:31-46; Philippians 2:4)
Generosity (Malachi 3:10-12; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15)

Living Out Love, Acceptance & Forgiveness
Being loved by God with everything He is and loving Him with everything we are; actively loving and serving others with His love. Accepting people where they are at, and honoring the individual for who they are, not for what they do; simply because they are made in God's image. Walking in forgiveness towards others, even as we have already been forgiven in Christ
(John 13:34-35; Romans 15:7; Matthew 6:12, 14-15)

Wholeness through Christ
Whole-life transformation, receiving and giving the Shalom of God, His healing salvation – spiritual, physical, emotional, relational, practical, financial; for ourselves, our marriages, our families, our Community, our society (Mark 6:56; Isaiah 53:4-6, 61:1-4)

Authenticity & Simplicity in Life & Faith
Christian discipleship lived out simply, just people on a journey together with Jesus; being real;
100% organic, nothing added, simply Jesus (2 Corinthians 1:12; Philippians 4:11-13; 1 Timothy 6:6-10)
