ENGAGE . 

The Great Commission: "Jesus said, 'Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Mt. 28:19-20

These are our TOP TEN VALUES that we wish to characterize our ministry. These values are the windows through which we view our ministry and guide our programs at all times.


THE BIBLE

We understand that programs don't change people; God changes people as His Word works in them. Therefore we are committed to the practical teaching and application of God's Word as absolute truth that leads to changed lives.

  

PRAYER

We recognize that we can do nothing of lasting value on our own. God is our ultimate source of direction, provision and power.

  

FAITH

We refuse to value comfort over risk. We are willing to risk failure in an attempt to trust God to do great things through His church family by faith.

  

WORSHIP

We acknowledge God's supreme value in our personal lives and the corporate worship of our church.

  

COMMUNITY

Growing believers are devoted to continue life changes. We believe life change happens best in small groups of Christian community where openness and accountability are present.

  

OUTWARD FOCUSED

Every member is a minister. Healthy believers are characterized by a desire to invest in the lives of others.

  

LOVE & GRACE

We will treat all people graciously, regardless of who they are or what they've done.

  

PARTICIPATION

The church is to operate as a body of specially gifted ministers who exercise their spiritual gifts in their area of passion. Every member should be a part of a team of people working together to serve the church family and the greater community.

  

EXCELLENCE

Excellence honors God and inspires people. Since God gave His best, we will honor God by giving our best.

  

RELEVANCE

We believe that God's designs are unique and creative. Therefore, we believe it is our Divine mandate to continually evaluate our programs and methods to be relevant and to maximize effectiveness.
