Our Church DNA

1. Jesus Is First

In a me first culture we intentionally put Jesus at the forefront of every area

of our lives. We live by His word and His truth. (Matt 6:33, 22:37, Gal. 2:20, Col. 3:17)

2. We Stay Connected

The only way to remain is to stay connected. We connect to God through

prayer, worship and His Word. We connect to people through intentional

relationships and Chapel Crews. We connect to our community and world

through service and generosity. (Gal. 6:2, Prov. 17:17, Rom. 12:5, 1 Thes. 5:14)

3. We Love Unconditionally

We love people right where they are, but we love them enough not to leave

them there. (1 john 4:16, Col 3:14, John 15:12)

4. We Serve

We lay down ourselves to build others up. (Gal 5:13, 1 Pet. 4:10, Rom. 12:9-13)

5. We Are Real

We aren’t perfect people. We share our triumphs over our pasts and failures

to help others overcome theirs. (1 Thes. 2:8, Rev. 12:11)

Kingdom. (Acts 28:31, Phil 3:8, Eph 5:16-17)

8. We Never Stop Pioneering

We are never satisfied with where we are. As a ministry we will always look

for new ways to innovate in order to reach and grow more people. (Gal. 6:9, 1 Tim. 6:12, Heb. 12:1-3)

9. We Don’t Maintain, We Multiply

We are committed to continual growth. (Acts 9:31, Eph. 2:22, 4:11-12)

10. We Give With Expectation

Every seed we sow with our time, talents and finances opens up eternal blessings

for the Kingdom of God and opportunity for life change in someone else. (Acts 20:35, 2 Col. 9:6-8, Hebrews 13:16)
