Values and Vision
Our Guiding Values
ALL INVOLVED: Every member of our community has gifts and talents given to them by the Holy Spirit to serve and further God’s mission in the world.
BECOMING DISCIPLES: Guided by the Bible we believe we are called all on a journey to discover more about God’s love and purposes for our lives
CREATING COMMUNITY: Jesus’ life and teaching are the inspiration and the model for our living together.
DOING EVANGELISM: We are all called to share in God’s mission in the world and we all give a witness to Jesus by what we do and what we say
ENCOUNTERING GOD:: Everything we are and do depends on being open to encounter with the transforming power of God in worship, prayer and service
