We exist to treasure Christ, equip believers, and send disciples for the glory of God.
Jesus is our supreme treasure and our joy. We exist to help others come to treasure Jesus as Savior and Lord. Jesus came as the son of God to lay down His life for us on the cross. It is through His blood that our sins are forgiven and we are made children of God. Jesus is our great treasure and pearl of great price. All things are nothing compared to His splendor and greatness. We exist to worship Him with our entire lives and invite all to come make Christ their treasure too.
We exist to equip disciples. Disciples are made both through the diligent teaching of Scripture and through authentic, Gospel-centered community. Christians who seek Jesus as their chief treasure are always growing, maturing, and conforming their lives to the pattern of Christ.
Equipped Disciples of Jesus must be sent out. Jesus commands us not to come and hide from the world but to go and tell the world. As a result, we seek to be a sending Church sending out disciples for ministry in the church, in our city, and around the world.
For the Glory of God
All we do is for the glory of God. This is the great purpose of the world and the purpose of our creation. We treasure Christ, equip disciples, and send them out for the mission of God so that He might be made glorious and that all the earth might praise Him.
Our Core Values
The Centrality of Christ
Everything we do as a church is centered on Jesus Christ. His Gospel is shared and applied in every single ministry. He is central in our lives as our treasure.
Because of the importances of Scripture for equipping disciples, our preaching methodology is expository preaching that is centered on the word of God.
Unity in Diversity
Though we may be a diverse people of various backgrounds, ethnicities, and social classes we will value the unity we have in Jesus Christ and will celebrate our diversity as the people of God.
Disciples are made through healthy families. We seek to build healthy homes by raising men to be spiritual leaders who are able to lead their wives and disciple their children. The locus of discipleship for children is within the home, so we seek to build strong, healthy families.
Environment of Grace
Our community will be an environment of grace where it is ok to come as you are. We have all been broken by sin and we will offer to all people forgiveness and grace found in Jesus regardless of their past or current struggles.
Simplicity and Focus
We do not seek to provide a myriad of activities and programs apart from our mission. We aim to simplify our ministry and focus on those tasks that help us achieve the mission God has given us.
We are committed to a tradition of worship that blends the traditional songs with new styles of singing them. We sing songs rich in doctrinal content for the good of our people and for the glory of God.
We are a church focused on the Great Commission seeking to be obedient to make disciples of all nations. We are a church with a passion to reach the nations for Jesus for his glory.
To be a member of the body of Christ is a precious thing. We seek to make membership meaningful by reserving it only for believers in Jesus Christ and setting a high standard for the membership of our church to be active in the mission of Jesus.
Empowered by the Spirit
Apart from God we can do nothing. As a Church everything we do will be marked by our dependence upon his enabling power and presence.
