Core Values

    Our values are what we do to reach our vision and goals.

    Prayer – We believe that Jesus demonstrated in the gospels the way to intimacy with the
    father is through prayer.  In Luke’s gospel Jesus said that men ought to always pray and not
    lose heart. (Luke 18:1)  In 1 Timothy 2:1 Paul said, before anything else let prayers be made
    for all men.

    Teaching – We believe according to the bible that the Word of God is alive and as believers
    are rightly instructed in the truth of the Word it will transform them into the character of Christ.
    (1Timothy 4:13; 16) (Colossians 3:16) (1 Peter 2:23)

    Praise – We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is worthy of honor praise and glory.  The
    Psalmist in chapter 100 encourages us to make a joyful noise unto the Lord and serve Him
    with gladness and to come before his presence with singing.  In Psalm chapter 33 the
    Psalmist tells us that praise is looks good on the righteous and that we should praise the
    Lord for His goodness.
    Hebrews 13:15 says, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of
    our lips giving thanks to his name.

    Worship – We believe in worshiping God through our giving of our finances, time and
    talents.  Malachi 3:10) (2 Kings 17:36) Chronicles 16:29 says, ascribe to the Lord the glory
    due His name; bring an offering, and come before Him; Worship the Lord in holy array.   In
    Luke 4:8 Jesus said, you should worship the Lord your God and only Him should you serve.   
    Psalms 95:6 says, come, and let us worship the Lord and bow down, let us kneel before the
    Lord our Maker.

    Evangelism /Outreach  - We believe and accept Jesus’ Great Commission to go into all the
    world and teach the gospel. (Matt. 28:18-20) First Timothy 2:3-4 says it is the desire of God
    our Savior that all men be saved and come into the knowledge of the truth.  As believers in
    Jesus Christ we are to be the physical body of Christ that reaches a hurting and dying world.  
    In Matthew 25:35-36 Jesus said, when I was hungry you fed me; when I was thirst you gave
    me something to drink; when I was a stranger you took me in; when I was naked you clothed
    me; when I was sick you visited me; when I was in prison you came to me.
