Our Five Core Values:
Transformation - Awaking people by boldly sharing God's love
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witness in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8 NIV)
Character - Becoming the people God designed. Living by faith produces the mind of Christ.
"Until we all reach unity in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13 NIV)
Interdependence - Strengthening one another through Gods empowerment. Structure must always submit to Spirit
"I am the vine, you are the branches . If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing" (John 15:5 NIV)
Community - Uniting for life's journey in Christ's love. Love is the context for all mission.
"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in you so that the world may believe that you have sent me" (John 17:20-21 NIV)
Surrender - Living passionately in the presence of the real God. Lives of worship draw people to Christ
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Roman 12:1-2 NIV)
