These are the values which shape my life to the core. They tug on my heart and mind and speak directly to my soul, and I see them as the basis and foundation for my life for God…
Prayerful Dependence on God
I believe I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength, and that apart from Christ I can accomplish nothing. I believe prayer is How God changes the world and I believe that prayer is not a way to change God but rather a way for God to change me.
Priesthood of All Believers
I believe all Christians are called out of darkness and into the wonderful light to proclaim the Glory of Him who has saved them. I believe all Christians are called to have Christ as Lord of their lives and always be prepared to give an account for the hope they have in Christ Jesus. I believe that all people in the Body of Christ have been given gifts which prepare them for service. I believe ALL Christians can serve the Lord, and must be given an opportunity to do so.
Reaching the Lost
I believe Christ came to seek and save the Lost. I believe that God is being patient with us because He desires that all might be saved. I believe in meeting people where they are at and loving them enough not to leave them there.
I believe God’s whole mission and purpose is to be in a relationship with us. I believe we, as Christians, are called to have Godly relationships which reflect God’s love, forgiveness, and compassion. I believe I cannot minister to a person unless I honestly care about that person.
Inspired Biblical Relevance
I believe we are created in the image of a creative God. I believe that God’s Word is true yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I believe that all scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. I believe that God’s Word deserves to be applied to our lives in a way that is living, meaningful, and relevant.
