The Short

The starting point for our ministry has always been our relationship to God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Cleverness and creativity are important to our ministry but these things are not the success of our ministry. Our success is based on intimacy with the Savior. 

John 15:5; 1 Peter 2:21; Ephesians 5:18-20   

The guide or compass for our ministry is the Bible. We believe the Bible is the very words of God and is used for so much more than just leaning on, it illuminates our path. 

2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 1:12   

The Focus of our ministry is people not programs. We were created for relationships not tasks. The Church is people not a building. 

John 3:16   

The goal of our ministry is growth and maturity. Like a tree, we are expected to reproduce. We do not want a large church with little depth. We want a growing church with much depth. 

Colossians 1:18-29; matthew 28:18-20   

The environment for ministry is teamwork. God has gifted all of us differently. We need variety in the body of Christ to accomplish the world wide mission that God has given us. 

John 13:34 +35; Romans 12:3-8
