Our Values

Church is NOT about us! It is about God and his desire to bring people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus. We commit our time, our talents, and our treasure to this endeavor.

We commit to cultivating a genuine love for one another; a spirit of unity even in disagreement; and an attitude of selflessness.

Our gatherings must honor God rather than please people. We commit to pursuing substance over style; and authenticity over attraction in our worship gatherings.

Every believer is called and gifted to serve God. We commit to helping people discover their unique gifts and use them in both the church and the world.

Our beliefs are grounded by the Scriptures. We are Baptist by nature and spirit-led by practice.
