OUR VALUES

WE ARE PASSIONATE

We’re passionate about our relationship with Christ, what he is doing in our lives and in the lives of the people in our church and our city.

WE TRY HARD

We value excellence and do our best to make it look like we tried. We believe God uses our hard work to make a difference. ​

WE LEAN IN

We do​ whatever it takes to accomplish our vision and goals, even if it falls outside our comfort zone.​

WE FIGHT FOR UNITY

We choose a culture of peace by getting along, showing respect and presuming the best of each other. We stand up for each other and we don’t throw each other under the bus.

PEOPLE COME FIRST

We choose to invest in the potential God has placed in others. People aren’t a distraction but the reason we do what we do.

WE ALWAYS POINT TO JESUS

We seize every opportunity to talk and tell others about Christ and what He’s done in our lives.​

WE ARE FUTURE ORIENTED

We know we can’t stay here and actively pursue God’s next for ourselves and for our Church.​
