There are certain values we think are essential to fully experiencing the life that Jesus Christ offers. We believe these should be a part of our daily lives regardless of where we are.
Pride and arrogance are always offensive to God and people. Life becomes a little easier to deal with and relationships are strengthened when we recognize we don’t have it all together and that we are all broken and in need of continual healing and help. That is why we call Jesus the Savior. (Micah 6:8, James 4:6)
‘Authentic’ means real or genuine. Real life is experienced when we are ‘real’ (not fake) with God, ourselves, and others. (Ephesians 4:22-24, James 5:16)
Jesus reduced the whole law down to a single four-letter word. Love! True love places the life, interest, and good of another above our own. Jesus said that love should be directed toward God and others. (Luke 9:23-24, Luke 10:27)
Healthy things grow! However, healthy growth is the result of specific actions, thought patterns, systems, habits, and routines. God uses these to help us grow and fully experience Him. (2 Timothy 4:7, 1 Corinthians 9:27)
We are made for relationships and are not designed to do life alone. We are also called to share the hope we have and the freedom we experience through Jesus Christ. We do that by sharing our faith, our story, and our life.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
We have limited knowledge, strength, and abilities. God is limitless! So we pray, trust, and follow His word and expect Him to accomplish more in our life and church than we could ever accomplish on our own. (Psalm 121:1-2)
