  2. We value the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit as the primary means of transformation and direction for life.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17; John 8:31-32)

  3. We value God's heart for those without Christ . . . and desire to reveal His love through the expression of our faith in the world. (Luke 15; John 3:16; Matthew 22:37-39)

  4. We value the fullness of the Spirit, both the indwelling and empowering that helps us produce the gifts and fruits of the spirit, comforts us, and empowers us to be a witness.

  5. We value the equipping, sending and supporting of missionaries both locally and  around the world. (Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 9:36-38)

  6.  We value the unity of the church . . . We celebrate the diversity and the unique qualities of each local congregation to reach and serve people for Christ. (John 17:23; Ephesians 3:14-21) 

  7.  We value prophetic prayer and intercession . . . both personally and corporately as the foundation for Church life and ministry. (Acts 4:23-31; Isaiah 56:7; Philippians 4:6)

  8. We Value that because humankind was created in God’s image, we are responsible for bearing his image into the world in whatever gift, talent, or skill we possess (Mark 16: 15-19; Romans 12 3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11).

  11. We value an environment where people can grow . . . In biblical knowledge, character and gifting without fear of failure or criticism. (Philippians 1:6; Colossians 1:9-12)
