We are Attractional: Utilizing our location, facility, technology, resources and creativity we will develop a message and programs that connect with people and assists in connecting them with God.
We are Relational: We are intentional about connecting with people in genuine life giving relationships, where a sense of community, a place to belong permeates every gathering. The goal is biblical fellowship where each person feels valued and cared for.
We are Missional: by understanding our culture and connecting with people who need Jesus. We don’t wait for them to come, we “GO” to where the people are. We lay aside the trappings of our sub culture group of Christianity and we “incarnate culture” we “learn so that we can lead”. In one closed hand we hold the unchanging truths of our theology and in the other open hand we hold the many cultural ways of showing and speaking Christian truth.
