It's Not About Me
We will model the self-giving love of Jesus by considering others as better than ourselves, setting ourselves aside, and practicing genuine humility (Philippians 2:1-11).
We Make Room
We will become a spiritual family that doesn’t look the same, think the same, talk the same, or have the same age or abilities. We will invite one another into full love and participation in the diverse and inclusive kingdom of God (Ephesians 4:1-16).
We Go There
We are in a humble pursuit of truth together. We will be a safe community to ask hard questions. We won’t be afraid to wrestle with uncomfortable topics and we will listen intently to the Spirit’s voice and dive deep into Scripture to make decisions for our church (2 Timothy 4:1-5).
Live Life to the Fullest
We love to laugh, celebrate, and have fun because we have been given so much by our Savior. We will overflow with joy, gratitude, and generosity into the lives of those around us (Romans 15:13).
Put Me In Coach
We will not sit on the sidelines when God’s Spirit is moving. We are activistic, engaged, and passionate about using our gifts and resources to heal this broken world in Jesus’ name (Ephesians 2:10).
Bring Your Own Bible
We will dive deep into Scripture and avoid shallow answers. We pursue biblical theology, we value lifelong discipleship, and we equip our people to explore God’s Word on their own (2 Timothy 3:14-17).
We will not be ground into dust by this life. We long to be continuously refreshed by Jesus, to pursue what makes us healthy, and to practice the spiritual disciplines of solitude, silence, and Sabbath rest (Matthew 11:28-29).
