UPWARD. We strive to be a community that faithfully adores God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit in truth and grace.
OUTWARD. We strive to be a community that embraces the lost, hurting, and embittered in order to connect them ultimately with their Redeemer.
INWARD. We strive to be a community that embraces, encourages, educates, and emboldens one another.
SIMPLE. We hope to grow a healthy church, not just a large church. Therefore, we strive to be conformed more and more into the image of Christ as we grow in grace, deepen in our understanding, relate with humility, and share with compassion.
DYING. We hope to be a community of love. If Jesus is who He says He is, and did what He said He did, then our status symbols, family histories, educational levels, knowledge of 'churchy' things, strengths or weaknesses, failures or victories neither qualify us for nor disqualify us from the love of God in Christ. He is our identity. We will strive to reflect that in our hearts, soul, mind, and strength.
ROOTS. We hope to be a supportive church. Our fellowship shares in the common struggle of knowing what life could be while often wrestling with what life really is. We will strive to pastor one another.
BEGGARS. We hope to be a generous community. We strive to love this city and its people. As those who deserve nothing, yet in Christ have received everything, we are privileged to serve, share with, and assist in relieving the needs of those in our community and abroad.
