Every church is different, but our DNA is unique to us.


People matter

We value the people Jesus values.  That is to say, everyone matters to us.
Luke 5:30-32

Never stop at fine

We strive for excellence.  We know there is no reward for squandered potential, half-hearted effort or lukewarm faith.
Colossians 3:17

Clarity Breeds Wisdom

We value clear Biblical teaching. We don’t care if truth is trendy.  Scripture stands the test of time.
Psalm 119:130

No lone rangers

We value teams.  This is a no-ego fly zone.  We realize a team outperforms the individual every time.
1 Corinthians 12:25-27

Have a friend and be a friend

We nurture life-giving connections.  We believe that names are meant to be known and people are meant to be loved.  Like CPR for the soul, life-giving relationships are as important as breathing.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Nothing human is foreign to us

We strive for cultural relevance. We don’t speak spiritual jargon. Our music is loud and our message is straightforward.
1 Corinthians 9:19-22

Unity is not Uniformity

We encourage personalized spiritual growth. When it comes to a relationship with God, we understand that one size does not fit all.
Ephesians 4:15-16

You don't need a title to be a leader

We value leadership.  We believe in transformational leaders who demonstrate holiness, integrity, and positive influence in the lives of others.  1 Timothy 4:12

We're a bunch of sell-outs

We practice whole-hearted devotion to Jesus.  We believe that love is a greater measure of devotion than religious zeal.  When you love Jesus first, you love everyone else better.
Matthew 22:37-38

Not everyone plays trombone

We value everyone playing his or her part.  There is no assembly line.  We want every individual to use his or her unique gifts, talents, and abilities to connect others to God.
Ephesians 12:6

To Change the Game, Change the Frame

We embrace creativity. We think big, take risks, and realize we must get out of the box. We hold a healthy disregard for the impossible.
Isaiah 43:19

When the tide comes, it lifts all the boats

We engage in community transformation.  We make a lasting difference in our communities.  Where it is dark, we bring the light.
Isaiah 32:18
