In essentials – unity
In non-essentials – diversity
In all things – charity
We believe the Bible as contained in both the Old and New Testaments is the divinely inspired Word of God [2 Timothy 3:16].
We value two all important commandments: “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.” And “love your neighbor as yourself.” [Mathew 22:37-40]
We are on a journey of faith together. Through God’s transforming power we will manifest the character of Christ – the fruit of the Spirit [Galatians 5:22-23].
We will seek to develop a servant heart and giving spirit. [Ephesians 4:13]
We value unity in diversity. Therefore, we will respect differing understandings of biblical texts and social and political views. We will strive to love one another as God loves us, and for unity in acceptance and forgiveness. We will seek for humility and a listening spirit when in dialogue with others.
We rally together for common goals. We invite the ideas and opinions of others. We value others more than ourselves. We are always ready to help or assist each other in any way we can. We will make every effort to support one another.
We understand that the primary work of the Church is to make disciples. This requires evangelism (the winning of personal commitment to Christ); and teaching – (the impartation of truth and practice). [Matthew 28:18-20]
We believe prayer is an essential way to communicate with God. We speak to God and God speaks to us. Prayer is both private and public and important for all.
These are the things we value and seek to embody as a community of faith. With God’s help and guidance we humbly acknowledge that our life together is a work in progress.
