Core Values

    1. Gospel Identity: The gospel is the power of God unto salvation and personal transformation. It is the good news that the Kingdom of God has come in power through Jesus Christ. Through the gospel, we are reconciled to God, adopted into His family, and given a secure identity. The gospel grounds all of our theology, practice and ministry.
    2. Steadfast Prayer: Prayer is talking with God, a vital means by which we build our relationship with God and access grace and spiritual power.
    3. Personal Transformation: We are all in process. We all need the cleansing, transformative power and grace of the gospel in every stage of life’s journey. This change is accomplished by the power of the Holy Spirit working through God’s Word, worship, prayer, discipleship, serving others, and witness.
    4. Sharing Our Stories: Each of us has a unique story full of joy and sorrow, success and failure. Each of our stories has meaning before God and with one another, and by sharing them with one another our stories are mutually enriched and individually enhanced.
    5. Real Relationships: We are wired for relationship and personal connection. Community is where we learn to love and be loved. It is where friendship develops, and where people from all backgrounds, classes and cultures are able to know each other and grow together.
    6. Renewing Culture: We are called to enter into the brokenness and injustice of this world in order to share God’s wisdom and truth and to demonstrate God’s love. This means active engagement and relationship building through the various channels and vocations in this world: work, school, family, arts, media, and government. Through the integration of faith and life, through these channels, we pursue good for all.
    7. Planting Churches: We believe planting new churches is the most strategic way for the gospel to go forward and to accomplish our vision for the world.

Our Connection – We are a mission church of the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA) and hold to the historic creeds of the church and the Westminster Standards as our doctrinal confession.
