Loved people, love people.
We respond to the immeasurable love of Jesus by giving our love, efforts and focus to Him, His kingdom, His church, and the people he saved by sacrificing it all.
“Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.”

Giving makes our world go ‘round.
“…remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

We worship God in every season and circumstance like our freedom depends on it.
“About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly a strong earthquake shook the foundations of the prison. At once all the doors flew open and everyone’s chains came loose.”
Breathing his last few breaths, Jesus wins one more soul. We’re desperate to rob hell and fill heaven.
“Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” And Jesus said to him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
Building a community with diversity in ethnicity, culture, experience, personality, gender and age is our superpower.
Go out therefore to the crossroads, and everybody you meet invite to the wedding.’”So they went out into the roads and gathered together all they could find, both bad and good, and the banqueting hall was filled with guests.
We’re not afraid of hard things but fight to distill ideas, systems, and structures down to their most potent form.
“But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”

We are an unapologetically spirit-led and spirit-filled church.

We celebrate the past and savor the present, but we crave the future; building the next generation of Christ-followers who will lead it.
“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.”
ACTS 2:17-18 NIV
