Loving God - Our desire to love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength is at the center of all we do. Our overriding aim of glorifying God in the entirety of our lives is realized through adherence to the Word of God, empowerment by the Holy Spirit and submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Loving Others - The ultimate expression of loving God is demonstrated by laying our lives down in service to others. Through sharing the gospel, making disciples, and meeting people at their point of need, Christ’s reflection is made visible in a broken and hurting world. Considering others as more important than yourself is central to authentic and effective ministry.
Becoming More Like Jesus - When loving God and loving others becomes the primary focus of our lives, the inevitable outcome is the growth of Christ’s character in our lives. Dying to ourselves and being conformed into the image of Christ should be the goal of all believers. To this end we commit ourselves to prayer, growing in His Word, building relationships within the church, and surrendering more completely to His Lordship.
