Core Principles

Our Core Principles are not a statement of what we believe (see Statement of Faith) but rather a means of informing how we intend to live. These values give vision and guidance to our members and help define our spiritual community.

 

DEVOTION

We live for Jesus Christ, out of love for him and devotion to his gospel. Theology can become complicated and ministry methods sophisticated, but our ultimate desire is simply Jesus himself.


INTIMACY

We know that we can draw near to God, see his beauty, and enjoy intimacy and companionship with him. This is the foundation of life and ministry, and it requires a pure heart, a hunger for righteousness, and an relentless eagerness to seek him.


DEPENDENCY

We depend on his presence and power for everything, and we trust him for all kinds of miracles to confirm the gospel among us. By his agency, Jesus constantly proves that his goodness and wisdom exceeds our understanding.


Humility

We grow by increasing in humility. As we seek him, we become more aware of our previous dullness, sinfulness, lack of faith, foolishness, and poor judgment. Our only response to the revelation of him is to go lower and rejoice in our weakness, that he may demonstrate his own strength and wisdom through us.


faith

We recognize that faith working through love is necessary to please God. Our faith is tested to produce perseverance, which perfects us in Christ. Thus, we have confidence in things hoped for in God, not in things seen in this world.


sacrifice

We give eagerly and joyfully sacrifice for the work of his kingdom. In the pursuit of obedience to him, no cost is too great and nothing is withheld. Our offering to him begins with a broken spirit and a contrite heart, full of joy.


suffering

We value suffering that produces holiness in us, accepting that following Christ requires willingness to suffer for his name. Therefore, we resolve to know nothing but Christ and him crucified. We rejoice when we are counted worthy to exchange the riches of this world for the riches of God in Jesus Christ.


joy

We strengthen ourselves with the unfailing joy of the Lord, which easily eclipses our hardships, labors, and trials. In his Spirit, we discover the fullness of joy that knows no bounds. His joy sustains us, equips us, and motivates us.


wisdom

We testify that wisdom fosters excellence in all things, unto God’s glory. Wisdom leads us to excellence and, with perseverance, produces righteousness in us. With excellence, we are given opportunities to spread the knowledge of him and to demonstrate his love and power.

 

grace

We celebrate his grace, which is sufficient for us in every circumstance. By his grace, we have been saved, justified, and redeemed - and given the opportunity to see him, to know his truth, and approach him confidently. We desire to be filled with his grace, which allows us to be his witnesses and magnifies his strengthen in our weakness.
