Our Core Values

Biblical Authority

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and carries more authority than church traditions or cultural norms.  Therefore, we strive to keep the Bible as the primary focus of our teaching, preaching, reaching and the ultimate standard by which we make our decisions.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

The Supremacy of Christ

We believe that Christ alone is the head of the church and we are the body. Therefore, we strive to keep Him as the focal point of our corporate and personal worship and to conform all our activities to His will.

Colossians 2:8-10

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.

The Gospel Message of Redemption and Hope

We believe in the good news of the transforming work of Christ’s death and resurrection for all believers.  Therefore, we should strive to personally and corporately reach out by lip and by life to those at home and abroad, through relevant means consistent with Godly teaching.

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Prayer

We believe prayer is the essential mode by which we communicate with God.  Therefore, we strive to make private and corporate prayer an essential part of all our ministry endeavors from conception through completion.

Philippians 4:6-7

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Holy Living

We believe that God has chosen us out of darkness and placed us into His marvelous light. Therefore, we must strive to live in such a way that we reflect the character of Christ.

1 Peter 1:15-16

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Authentic Worship

God deserves all the glory and praise we can possibly give Him. Therefore, we should strive to make our worship, (especially our Worship Services) excellent, authentic and Christ-honoring throughout.

John 4:23-24

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Personal Christian Growth

We believe that continual growth in all areas of the Christian life is one of the benefits of being in Christ.  Therefore, we strive to create an environment that enhances the development of personal spiritual growth.

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Strong Christian Relationships

We believe that God intended for His church to be composed of strong Christian relationships among the believers to promote spiritual growth.  Therefore, we should strive to maintain a sense of openness, accountability, and atmosphere that strengthens both healthy and broken families, and a heart that reaches the needs of every age and race.

Romans 12:10

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.

Excellence

We believe that excellence is an essential part of God’s character and that all pursuits of the local church should reflect this quality.  Therefore, we strive to demonstrate excellence in every function of the church’s ministries, as well as in the maintenance of all facilities and equipment.

1 Corinthians 14:40

Let all things be done decently and in order.
