Three distinctive values shape what we believe a life with God is all about: we exist to worship God, love together, and live for others.
Ultimately, we believe that since God is Creator and Redeemer, every square inch of our universe and of our lives is rightfully His. He in turn has made Jesus the center point of all of history, turning all authority in heaven and earth over to Him. In Jesus, all our journeys find their conclusion. Every search for God finds its ultimate culmination at the foot of the cross and the empty tomb. There God put all of our sin on Him and gave all of Jesus' resurrection life and power to us. Therefore, we are on a mission to see every facet of our lives centered upon God and His King Jesus.
We fully expect that as we encounter God in His majesty, love one another to spiritual maturity and live on a mission for others in our community and around the world, we will experience the fullness of God's presence in Jesus.
How would you summarize this in a sentence? We value the experience of God amongst His people as they authentically love each other and serve the world. We truly believe that we have only seen the fringes of what Jesus can do when He walks amongst a people fully committed to His presence and his way of life. We truly believe that the best is yet to come. "Greater things than these..." Jesus said, speaking of the works His disciples would do in His name by His power. This transforming power and presence is what we value most.
