Core Values

Expository Preaching
We value expository preaching because all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for our lives (II Tim. 3:16); therefore, we must hear the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27) by understanding Scripture it in its proper context (Nehemiah 8:8) and applying its timeless principles to our lives today (I Peter 1:25).
We value missions because Jesus commanded His disciples to spread the gospel throughout the world (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8).
We value prayer because it shown throughout Scripture to be essential to the Christian life (John 15:5; I Thessalonians 5:17) in that it draws on the power of God to accomplish His work (Acts 4:23-31; James 5:16).
Christian Education
We value Christian education because knowledge of the Word of God is necessary for faith in Christ (Romans 10:17; II Timothy 2:15) and the foundation of a Christian worldview (Colossians 2:3).
Caring Community
We value a caring community because of the “one-another” passages in Scripture that exhort us to “love one another” (John 13:34-35), “encourage one another” (Hebrews 10:24-25), “care for one another” (Galatians 6:2), “forgive one another” (Ephesians 4:32), “comfort one another” (I Thessalonians 4:18), “be patient with one another” (Colossians 3:13), and so much more.
Congregation-Engaged Worship
We value congregation-engaged worship because true corporate worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:24) occurs when the people of God are utilizing their gifts (I Corinthians 12:7) in order to edify the body (Ephesians 4:11-16) and bring glory to the Lord (I Peter 4:10-11; Hebrews 13:20-21).
