OUR CORE PILLARS
Glory of God
Motivation for all things (Colossians 3:17; Isaiah 42:8). We celebrate God’s sovereignty and providence with full realization that everything we are and have has been supplied us by God for God to push back what is dark in the world that He may be clearly seen.
Counsel of God
Biblical Authority (Acts 20:20, 27). We embrace deep commitment to biblical faith, relevant Bible teaching, the study of the Word of God, and ministry that nurtures true authentic life and undergirds a life filled with purpose, destiny, and passion.
house of prayer
Priesthood of Believers (Matthew 22:13-16; I Peter 2:5-6). We emphasize the importance of worship, praise and thanksgiving to God, spiritual empowerment, the giftedness of life in the Spirit, and being a cross-cultural community, a house of prayer for all nations.
GOSPEL OF GRACE
Positional Righteousness (Acts 20:24,32). We proclaim God’s transforming love and engage in outreach to people right where they are, emphasizing the abundant life that results from placing one’s life under God’s kingdom rule and reign.
BOND OF PEACE
Covenantal Fellowship (Ephesians 4:3; Psalm 133:1; Philippians 2:2-4). We value Christian fellowship, a relational approach to life, the encouragement of brotherly love, and the mutual ministry of the saints in the bond of peace, covenant community, and mutual submission.
Christian Discipleship (Ephesians 5:1-2; I Thessalonians 1:6). We call forth disciples to embrace a path of discipleship that imitates the life of Christ, pursues the processes of personal growth and supernatural life in the Spirit, and understands what it means to live an authentic lifestyle participating in apostolic mission and ministry from home base community.
IMITATION OF CHRIST
Humble Ministry (Matthew 20:26-28; I Peter 4:10-11). We seek the diligent communication of the Kingdom of God through acts of service and kindness demonstrating service to one another with humility through acts of ministry and sacrifice.
CALLING OF SERVANTHOOD
Mutual Acceptance (I John 4:15-18). We pursue perfecting love in one another through the practice of love. We strengthen marriages and families, encourage godly parenting, and rise godly sons and daughters.
