Values & Mission

                                                                 

Values

 

  1. Worship — Presence

  • We are Presence People. His Presence is our priority!

  • Presence over principles.

  • “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.” — Exodus 33:15

  • We honor God by worshiping first.

  • We’re okay if we’re not the church for people if they don’t like this element.

 

    2. Family

  • We’re not just a ministry, we’re a family.

  • Family provides the context.

  • We believe that a healthy church functions like a family and feels like a home.

  • You can belong before you believe, behave. We want to be friends of sinners, like Jesus.

  • Family is where you’re loved into your purpose.

  • Family is how we relate to one another. Family begins with a Mom and Dad. We honor our parents!

  • Values 1 and 2 are about the Great Commandment.

 

    3. Growth

  • We don’t just maintain, we multiply.

  • “Be fruitful and multiply!” — Genesis 1:28

  • Intimacy unto fruitfulness!

  • This is about the Great Commission.

  • We grow AS disciples and IN disciples.

 

    4. Generosity

  • We are generous with our time, talent, and treasure.

  • We serve, we give.

  • We tithe. We give our first fruits to the storehouse, the church.

  • This is the normal Christian life. This is not abnormal or radical.

  • Consistent posture of surrender.

  • It all belongs to Him. His is the Kingdom, Power, and Glory!

 

    5. Legacy

  • We begin with the end in mind.

  • It’s not just about the finish line, but the journey.

  • Legacy is not something that you leave, but something that you live.

  • There’s no success without a successor.

  • This is about being a good steward with what God has given to you.

  • We sow good seeds without expecting anything in return. It’s about my legacy, not my returns.
