Our Core Values

Our core values never change. These have been the principles that have guided the ministry throughout the years. They will see us through the tough times and keep us focused during the good times. Relationships are what make church a fulfilling experience. This is one of the reasons that we concentrate on what the Lord gave us – The Great Commandment. It starts with our love for God and for those around us.

Our core values are:

  • To love God and our neighbor as we love ourselves, this is our first order of business. We are to love and care for those that are in our area of influence. This is the essence of ministry. We are to be motivated by love alone. See 1 Cor 13 – without love we are nothing.
  • To minister with a heart of grace and truth. We are to minister from a point of patience and grace. This allows us to accept sinners in our midst without legalistic judgment. We are to encourage them to grow out of the place they are at in their spiritual journey. Truth is what brings about change and growth
  • To see change and growth in the lives of those committed to Christ. (This is the core of discipleship).
  • To give our lives in service to the church and the community
  • The greatest in the kingdom of heaven will be the servant of all. We are to give our lives in service to others. This is why we are doing church.

Our Core Purpose

Our core purpose is the reason we exist. This is what we are called to do.

  • To make disciples of Jesus. ( Mat. 28:19-20 )
  • Pastoral staff is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry ( Eph. 4:16 )
  • To create an environment for growth and will assist to develop the lives of each believer.
  • We are to seek the will of God in everything we do.
  • We are a living organism, dynamically reproducing the life of the Spirit in others, Through the power of the living word of God. (1 Thess )
