THE WORD OF GOD
2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17 NASB
“All Scripture is INSPIRED BY GOD and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

The bible is about Jesus (cover to cover), because it’s insightful, instructional and informative, if taught correctly and made to be the center-piece of all our decisions the impact it will have on our life will be remarkable.

PEOPLE
2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4 NIV
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, SO THAT WE CAN COMFORT THOSE IN ANY TROUBLE with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”

Being about “PEOPLE” means paying it forward from time to time. It means taking our experience in walking through trials and being willing to be a source of comfort and strength for others who are facing difficulty. Being about people means SERVING people and being there for them.

FAMILY UNIT
DEUTERONOMY 6:6-7 NIV
“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. IMPRESS them on your children. TALK about them when you SIT at home and when you WALK along the road, when you LIE DOWN and when you GET UP.”

The “Family” as a “Unit” has ETERNAL significance in the kingdom of God. It is designed to be a SPIRITUAL building block.

PSALM 78:4a&7a NLT
“We will NOT HIDE these truths from our children… So each generation should set its hope anew on God…”

COMMUNITY
ROMANS 3:23 NIV
“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…”

Because of this truth, it’s our job to lovingly lead people step-by-step to the realization that they are lost and in need of a Savior. Our community is our mission field. Our Christian life cannot just be summed up in our weekly gatherings. What we do on Sunday’s should be the “least church thing we do all week!”

Our passion is to live intentionally in our community, serving our community and caring for the needs of our COMMUNITY!

It’s our call to be OUTWARD focused!

EXCELLENCE
MALACHI 1:8 NIV
“When you offer blind animals for sacrifice, is that NOT WRONG? When you sacrifice lame or diseased animals, is that NOT WRONG?…”

COLOSSIANS 3:23 NIV
“Whatever you do, work at it with ALL YOUR HEART, as working for the Lord, not for men…”

Whatever we do we put our best foot forward. We believe everything we do, we are doing it for God Himself and He doesn’t deserve less than our best effort.

Striving for excellence simply means making every effort in preparation and execution the very best we can for Jesus!
