How We Live It


We believe that God's primary mission for the church is to make disciples. It is not one of many missions, but it is primary. Making disciples means leading people to the decision to make Jesus the Lord of every area of life.

Matthew 28:18-20

Mentoring Relationships

Love is the source of everything we do. We want everyone to feel a true sense of God's love. We believe that loving, accepting, and challenging relationships are the primary environment God wants to use to facilitate His work of transforming our lives. Mentoring Groups are designed to be environments where these kinds of relationships happen. Mentoring Groups are where we see the greatest life-change; three to five people who meet once a week, face-to-face, who are intentional about helping each other become more like Christ. In an environment of acceptance and grace, God uses us to help each other become all that God intended us to be.
1 Peter 1:22, John 15:12-13, 1 Peter 3:8

Outward Focus

The Church's most important mission is to reach those who don't yet have a relationship with Jesus. We will show them the love of God by actively seeking them out, showing them the love of Jesus by ministering to their needs, and encouraging them to become followers of Jesus Christ. Every disciple of Christ should be focused on reaching out to friends, neighbors, and the community.
Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Corinthians 5:20, Luke 15:4-7, 1 Corinthians 9:19, 22

Teaching the Bible for Life Change

The Bible is God's Word for us. So we value teaching the Bible in ways that are clear, straightforward, easy to understand, and creative. But just teaching the Bible is not enough. That is just education. We want to go from education to application to transformation. We teach the Bible in practical ways so that we can apply it to our everyday lives and watch the Spirit transform us. Sharing and applying the scriptures to our lives in Christian community and in the world brings real life change.
James 1:22, Hebrews 4:12, Matthew 7:24-27

Passionate Prayer

We are fueled by prayer. Why?

  • Because this world is hungry for the change that only God can provide.
    Ephesians 6:18, Colossians 4:2
  • Because we are more interested in what GOD can do through us rather than what we can do for God in our own strength.
  • Because we believe God wants to work though us, so we need to be intimate with Him and fully yielded to Him.
  • Because we minister out of the overflow of what God is doing in our own lives.
  • Because no powerful movement of God ever happened without abundant prayer.
  • Because God answers prayer!
