Loving God. Living Truth. Lifting People.
1. Worship as Priority: The Worship of God is our primary ministry, pursued with biblically motivated zeal and offered in reverence with humility, childlikeness, and joyfulness.
2. God’s Word as Authority: The Word of God is our final authority and source of life-guidance, calling us to a faith-filled, obedient, godly life-style.
3. God’s Love Brings Wholeness: A Holy Spirit begotten climate of God’s love is that atmosphere which most readily begets living hope, fosters true spiritual health, and produces practical holiness, as Jesus’ Cross points us to a path of discipleship and a life free of condemnation, at rest in God’s grace.
4. Ministry to the Family: The biblically modeled family is God’s foundational social and governmental unit and is to be nourished, served, and preserved as such. Fundamental to this value is the sanctity of biblical marriage, biblical sexuality, and human life.
5. Racial Harmony and God’s Kingdom: Under God our Creator, ethnic diversity is respected; and under Christ our Redeemer, all humanity is invited to answer the Bible’s call to the values and virtues of the Kingdom of God.
6. Unity of Christ’s Body: The unity of the Church—Christ’s global, many-faceted Body—is to be earnestly sought and unselfishly served, that this value for which Jesus prayed may find its answer in our attitudes and commitments.
7. Constant Prayer unto Fruitfulness: Steadfast prayer and faithful intercession allow us to enter a partnership with God Almighty, and they are the foundational means of personal and corporate fruitfulness in life, service, and ministry.
8. Spirit-filled Witness and Service: The ministry of the Church is to be conveyed through the means of maturing believers at every age level, social status, and marital state: filled with the Holy Spirit for empowered witness and equipped in the Word and His gifts for faithful service.
9. Vitality of the Spiritual Language: The biblical exercise of Holy Spirit enabled supernatural utterance for prayer, praise, intercession, and edification, is a desirable and an available resource for every believer, but is not to be deemed an essential experience, or insisted upon for salvation, filling, maturity, or success in spiritual life. While such an experience is encouraged, and may enhance one’s intimacy with God, it is never to be manipulated, forced, faked, or presented in such a way as to create division or a sense that one believer is more or less than another believer.
10. Committed to Spiritual Warfare: The reality of the invisible realm of spiritual conflict demands biblical confrontation through prayer and ministry with discernment and love; that the triumph of Calvary is not minimized, but applied by such means.
11. Spirit of Giving and Stewardship: To live is to give—in tithes, offerings, and all life’s resources. We steward what we have been given of time, gifts and finances, seeing these as being from God’s hand, yet as ours to obediently distribute.
12. Committed to Sound Doctrine: We adhere to the Word of God as our foundation and final authority for Christian living; always living in the spirit of the maxim—In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.
