Spiritual growth is a life-long process of imitating Christ. As we cultivate a balanced lifestyle of purity, holiness, and Christian character, we honor God and influence others (Ephesians 5:1-5, Philippians 2:1-11, Galatians 5:22, 23).
Intimacy With God
We share God's desire for an intimate relationship which is cultivated by the consistency of prayer, dynamic worship, and a need for an understanding of the Word of God (Psalm 139, Acts 2:42, Matthew 6:5-15).
We believe how we represent ourselves is a reflection of who we really are. This is accomplished collectively as we individually pursue accountability for each other based on integrity, sound character, high moral values, and Biblical principles ( I Peter 2:12, Proverbs 27:17, Proverbs 12:15).
We believe God equips each of us with talents, abilities, and resources, expecting us to fully develop and use these gifts, thereby maximizing our potential to serve Him and our communities (Matthew 25:14-30, Ephesians 3:20-21).
Our faith in God compels us to take well-planned, aggressive, visionary steps to present the gospel of Jesus Christ -- regardless of the risk involved (I Samuel 17:45-47, Hebrews 11, James 2:14-26).
Excellence In Ministry
When you truly experience the excellence of God, you will be compelled to serve Him with a passion and give Him your absolute best (Colossians 3:17, II Samuel 24:24, Mark 12:30).
We believe a right relationship with God is essential for achieving reconciliation among family members, races, and denominations (II Corinthians 5:18-20, Galatians 3:26-29).
God designed us to serve (to value others above ourselves) and to be served (to allow others to fulfill needs in our lives). As we are obedient to this calling, God brings together our talents and abilities to form a powerful Christian community (John 13:34-35, Galatians 6:2, I Corinthians 12:7, 12-17).
As fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, we are urgently driven to share our faith with non believers, to educate believers for practical victorious living, and to equip believers for abundant service to God. (Matthew 28:18-20)
We believe God's Word contains the solution to every challenge in life. Therefore, we present God's Word in creative, artistic, and culturally relevant ways. (Psalm 119:105, I Corinthians 9:19-23, Acts 17:16-19)
