Vision and Values
Jesus Our King- Our chief vision and value is that Jesus is the King of the church. He is the Chief-Shepherd, Senior Pastor, Great High Priest, Founder and Perfecter of our faith. He therefore is, and ought to be, the unparalleled authority in this church.
His Word Our Rule- Jesus, as the Word of God, builds and governs His church through the writen and inspired Word of God, the Bible, consisting of the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament. We joyfully hold to His word as the supreme authority for faith and practice.
His Mission Our Mandate- Jesus made disciples and mandated that disciples be made. This is the chief activity of His church in order to bring Him most glory. Simply put, a disciple is a follower of Jesus who gives his life to make other followers of Jesus.
His Glory Our Prayer- We pray for many things but the chief end of all our prayer is for God the Father to be glorified in this world by the exaltation of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. We pray that Jesus would be glorified in all the earth through the proclamation of the Gospel, the salvation of sinners, and the building up of the church in all nations and people groups.
His People Our Family- We view all people who are resting by faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ as our family regardless of race, nationality, culture, denomination, language, or age. All people for whom Christ died are considered family.
