Knowing God through Jesus makes us family and is the power that holds us together and makes us grow.
Family is where faith gets real. Family can be hard, but as we pursue peace and offer grace to one another God makes us more like Himself and we become a light to the world showing off His goodness.
God has made us his own for good works. Each of us is uniquely gifted to serve the Community and share what we know about Him, connecting people to God and growing His family.
1. Biblical Authority… “A Better Way to Do Life”
We recognize the authority of God’s Word and our need to adjust to it. We will present it honestly and with compassion. (John 8:10-11)
2. Real Relationship… “Know and Be Known”
We embrace the truth that, no matter what disconnected you from God, Jesus is the only way to reconnect with Him. (Acts 4:12; John 1:10-13)
3. Promote Family… “Home Life”
We support the spiritual nurture of the family as one of God’s most dynamic means to demonstrate and grow loyalty to Jesus. (2 Tim 1:5; Ephesians 6:1-4)
4. Authentic Community… “Me Too”
We all have struggles; being real about them with one another we receive the support we need to grow. This authenticity creates an atmosphere of generosity and compassion. (Acts 2:37-45; James 5:13-16)
5. Safe Environments… “Come As You Are”
We aren’t in the business of changing people. Instead, we embrace our role to create spaces where people can work out their stuff with Jesus. (Titus 3:1-5; Romans 14:13-19)
6. Gifted Service… “Purpose and Personality”
We aim to use our unique talents to build one another up and serve the community. (Ephesians 4:11-16; Acts 9:36-42)
7. Relational Evangelism… “Show and Tell”
We want to live our lives in a way that introduces the community to the love of Jesus, giving them a chance to hear and decide for themselves. (Mark 5:18-20; John 4:39-42)
