Our Core Values

N.E.W.  G.E.N.E.S.I.S.

Loving our neighbors as ourselves. We recognize the eternal value of every individual. God works through people, and each person is unique and vital to God’s plan. We commit ourselves to love and care for each other with sensitivity and humility within our fellowship and within the community in which we live and serve (Matthew 22:39). 

Encouraging in heart and uniting in love 
While serving the Lord, we sometimes experience trouble and grief. We strive to encourage everyone to look beyond the trials and tribulations in life and look to fully experience His power, love, and deliverance (1 Thessalonians 5:11). 

Worship the Lord in the splendor of Holiness 
We believe that praise and worship is the most vital function of the church. We believe worship that transforms is the response of believers to the presence, holiness, and revelation of Almighty God. We know that when we truly worship, we have a genuine encounter with God. We believe that through worship we receive power, guidance, and spiritual strength (Psalm 96:9). 

Godly servant leadership 
We believe that God divinely calls and sends Godly servant-leaders to lead God’s people. We believe in following anointed, Holy Spirit-filled, and gifted leaders as they follow Jesus Christ (Jeremiah 3:15). 

Exalt the Lord our God 
We believe that a strong abiding relationship with Jesus Christ is the key to staying connected to God. Through the Word of God, prayer, personal worship, and obedience we can love and exalt the Lord our God with heart, soul, mind, and strength (Psalm 99:5 ; Matthew 22:36-37). 

Nurturing people and families 
We believe that God works through people, and each person is unique and vital to God’s plan. People make up families, and the church is styled as a family. Therefore, we believe that nurturing and building strong relationships in the church family and the network of families in the church is important (Hebrews 10:24-25). 

Excellence honors and inspires people 
We believe that the God our salvation deserves the best we have to offer. The Lord Himself is a God of excellence as shown by the beauty of creation; further, He gave the best that He had, His only Son, for us. Paul exhorts servants, in whatever they do, to “work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” ((John 3:16 ; Colossians 3:23). 

Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ 
We are committed to bringing the gospel to the lost by all available means. We are committed to making disciples by seeking the lost, establishing believers, and equipping workers: An ongoing balance of winning, building, and equipping priorities, ministries and relationships (Matthew 28:18-20). 

Integrity as a way of life 
We strive to develop Christian character and a Christ-like manner in all that we do, living and working above reproach (Romans 13:13-14). 

Scripture as our guide for living 
We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word, the authoritative and trustworthy rule of faith and practice for Christians. The Bible is timeless and timely, relevant to the common needs of all people, and every age, at all times and to the specific challenges of contemporary living. Therefore, we are committed to equipping Christians through the teaching of God’s Word to follow Christ in every sphere of life (Psalm 119:33-40).
