Core Values

  • Serving: Serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13b)
    We believe that Scripture calls us to serve the hungry, the widow, the orphan, and the stranger at their point of need. Christ did not come to be served but to serve and His desire for us is to follow His example. Sacrificially serving our neighbors comes from a heart of love and gratitude for what God has done for us.

 

  • Equipping: To equip the saints for the work of ministry. (Ephesians 4:11-12a)
    We believe that every member in the Body of Christ is gifted and called into ministry. Our heart is to help individuals and church families discover their gifting, create a course of action, and nurture and give birth to new ministries for the kingdom. We do this through training and coming alongside new churches and outreaches until they are well established.

 

  • Partnership: For the building up of the Body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:12b)
    Just as a body cannot function without all its parts, we believe that no one church or organization can do the work of the Great Commission on its own. We value the importance of co-laboring and collaborating with local churches, para-church organizations, ministries, and service providers so that God can best be glorified and His Kingdom work best accomplished.

 

  • Discipleship: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19a)
    We believe that God’s strategy to change His world is through His children becoming passionate followers of Jesus and teaching other to do the same. As we pursue outreach, we are learning to do the things Jesus did. By following the ministry model of Jesus, we strive to disciple both volunteers and the people they reach to grow towards maturity in Christ.

 

  • Evangelism: Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. (Mark 16:16a)
    We believe that Church is not for us but for God and the lost. Because of this, everything we do must filter through the desire for and the purpose of evangelizing a lost and dying world. We strive to saturate each outreach with both the verbal proclamation and physical demonstration of the gospel of God’s love and the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
