Values & Culture

God’s Goodness: We believe in the goodness of God. Father God’s mood toward us is always good, and we never approach Him on a bad day! Psalm 100:4-5

Identity: We believe we are His sons and daughters, not orphans. After salvation, we are no longer sinners, but saints adopted into family. Romans 8:14-17;  2 Corinthians 5:17

Relationships: We believe right relationships are the highest priority of heaven. We practice honor, love, and transparency– preferring one another above ourselves. We celebrate progress and not performance. It is safe to be real in healing  while  honoring one another and the Father in our healing process. Romans 12:10; Matthew 18:15-19; Matthew 5:23-24; Matthew 22:37-40

Presence Focused: We desire His presence in all we do and say. Our corporate gatherings are about Him. When we gather together for worship, we are all participants and not spectators. We respond to Him from a heart of gratitude and love. Psalm 16:11; 2 Chronicles 5:14

Kingdom Authority: We partner with Holy Spirit in bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth. We believe that Jesus rules and reigns, and that all authority has been given to Him and released to us. We believe that we represent Jesus here on earth, and we are to do what He did. We expect signs, wonders and miracles to accompany the gospel. Mark 16:15-18; 1 John 4:17; Matthew 10:7-8; Matthew 6:8-10

Generosity: We believe that every  resource in heaven is  available to us as sons and daughters of Father God. We  give from our  hearts as an act of worship.  We give as Holy Spirit leads and not out of manipulation, guilt, or fear. We give hilariously and generously; we take risks and give in faith. We believe in holding nothing back as we cheerfully give to the local church, one another, city, region, and beyond. We believe our giving opens the door for others to receive the heart of the Father towards them.  2 Corinthians 9:7;  Luke 6:38; Proverbs  21:26; Proverbs 3:27; Proverbs 28:27; 2 Corinthians 9:6-8; John 3:16; James 2:15-16.

Spiritual maturity: We believe spiritual maturity is measured by how we love and not just what we know. We are Kingdom focused, not just church focused. Spiritual Maturity is expressed by  fulfilling the Great Commission to bring the good news to earth. We believe in spiritual gifts, and we use our gifts to populate the Kingdom of heaven and build up the church on earth.  Ephesians 4:11-16;  1 Corinthians 12:27-28
