Values & Mission
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
