The Core Values [what’s our DNA]
Spirit-filled teaching of the Bible is the catalyst for transformation in individual lives [Romans 12.7; 2 Timothy 3.16-17; James 1.23-25].
All people matter to God and therefore they ought to matter to us [Luke 5.30-32; Luke 15; Matthew 18.14].
The local church should be racially and ethnically diverse [Matthew 28.19; Revelation 7.9-10; 1 Corinthians 12.13; Galatians 3.28].
The church is most effective in its ministry of reconciliation when it combines cultural relevance with biblical principles [1 Corinthians 9.19-23].
Excellence honors God and inspires people [Colossians 3.17; Malachi 1.6-14; Proverbs 27.17].
The church functions optimally when it operates as a united team of servants with men and women stewarding their Spiritual gifts [1 Corinthians 12 & 14; Romans 12; Ephesians 4; Psalm 133.1].
Love for Jesus Christ is demonstrated in loving relationships and actions in every aspect of life [1 Corinthians 13; Nehemiah 3; Luke 10.1; John 13.34-35].
Churches are most effective in advancing the cause of Christ when led by men and women with leadership gifts [Nehemiah 1 & 2; Romans 12.8; Acts 6.2-5].
Spiritual growth happens best in small groups [Luke 6.12-13; Acts 2.44-47].
Full devotion to Jesus Christ in all areas of life is the calling of every believer [Ephesians 4.25-26; Hebrews 12.4; Philippians 1.6].
