ZEAL ROOTED IN LOVE

Love for God and neighbor motivates our zeal for the salvation of souls.

We pursue intimacy with God and personal holiness to become fruitful disciples of Jesus Christ.

 

YIELDING TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

We seek to be led by the Holy Spirit individually and communally and pursue ever greater obedience to His promptings.

 

GROWING TOGETHER
We are intentionally patient with each other as we go through the process of growing. We commit to help each other by humbly giving and receiving feedback with kindness and gentleness.

 

PERSEVERANCE

We acknowledge that authentic growth comes through overcoming disappointment and persevering towards the fulfillment of God’s plans for us and through us.

 

CULTURE OF HONOR

We choose to treat others with the highest regard because they bear the image of God and we celebrate His work in their lives.

We seek to cultivate a missionary attitude and a lifestyle of Spirit-led evangelization.
