Our desire is to glorify God by proclaiming and cherishing the gospel; connecting and caring for people; and reaching and serving our neighbors and the nations by being on mission.
Cherishing the Gospel – The gospel is the good news that God has acted in history to conquer evil, rebellion, and sin and reconcile sinners to himself through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. A gospel-centered church is one where the gospel is clearly proclaimed and consistently applied to every aspect of life.
Loving People – The church is not a place, but a people – a community that is continually being reformed and renewed by the transforming power of the gospel (Col. 1:6). When a church family walks together through every season of life, in every stage of life, the gospel fuels their love and ministry to one another.
Living on Mission – The gospel is a call to mission – a declaration that “the kingdom of God is at hand” (Mark 1:15). A gospel-centered church will train people to live on mission in the practical rhythms of everyday life and it will seek to see that the gospel is proclaimed to everyone in every place.
