Our values

The Gospel will be at the center of everything we do. We will tirelessly work to make Christ known.

It is our passion to create a greenhouse for new believers so they may become rooted and grounded followers of Christ.

We are spiritual contributors, not consumers. The church does not exist for us; the church exists to reach the world for Christ.

We believe there is no greater purpose than serving God. The work we do brings the good news of salvation, healing, and freedom to a needy world. So we can’t settle for anything less.

Excellence honors God and inspires people. We will bring our best in everything we do.

We are the body of Christ. We are fellow soldiers in the fight. We laugh together, love each other, and lift each other up.

Have Questions?

Ask us anything. Seriously, go ahead.
