We fulfill our mission to live loved by God, together in community, on mission with Jesus in our city by devoting ourselves to three core values: Worshiping with all, Going deep with some, and Investing as one. Other values flow from and clarify our core values. These include:
This is His story. We enjoy our best life for His glory when we find ourselves in Him, as part of His story.
Love does. God’s love acted on our behalf, so our love for another/others must act on their behalf.
We disciple each other to live loved by God and love another/others as He loves us.
Community is messy because people are messy. Life doesn’t fit into neat packages. We count on the unexpected, value people over structures, and stay flexible.
Our mission shapes our method. We hold forms and structures lightly to stay missionally nimble.
We love our neighbors near and far. “Near” neighbors are those within our normal sphere of influence. “Far” neighbors are those outside our normal sphere of influence but still within our reach.
Doing what only God can get the credit for leads to the most thrilling, God-honoring life. So we pray, listen, walk in His power, and take creative risks to live as Kingdom people in our world.
We hope in Jesus, not our performance. We don’t expect each other to be perfect. We help one another up when we fall and press forward together in Him.
We do this together. Life in Christ is personal but never private. We grow in Christ and fulfill His mission by equipping and encouraging each other to use our gifts to this end.
We live under the light of God’s Word. The Bible is the supreme and final authority that informs, guides, and shapes all we are and do as His people.
