Vision & Values

Together these guide how we attempt to live out our lives and conduct the pursuit of our vision.
We are a Purpose Driven Church – Purpose Driven is a biblically-based church health model.
The foundation for the Purpose Driven model is the Bible, with an intentional emphasis on the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). Jesus gave the Great Commandment when he was asked to identify the most important of God’s commands.
To paraphrase his response, he said, “Here is the entire Old Testament in a nutshell. I’m going to give you a simple summary of God’s commands: All the Law and all the Prophets can be condensed into two tasks: Love God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.”
Later, as Jesus said goodbye to his disciples, he gave them a Great Commission that included three more tasks: go make disciples, baptize them, and teach them to obey everything Jesus taught.
These two passages, the Great Commandment and the Great Commission combine to create the essential elements of a healthy, growing, biblically-based church: worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and missions. Purpose Driven provides a simple, effective strategy and the necessary tools to bring these biblical purposes into balance.
