CORE CONVICTIONS

that form and shape our fellowship are:


The encounter of God is our deepest need—and joy


What God is doing in the world culminates in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. In this sense, Jesus is both the light of the world and the light by which Christians do ministry


Where Jesus is, there is affirmation of life; and, potentially, where there is affirmation of life there Jesus may be present


The Bible is the Church’s charter, guiding story, and witness


Meaning in life and life styles are in correspondence


All Christian are called into ministry


All Christians are anointed by the Holy Spirit

God usually comes to people through people

CORE VALUES

that guide us on how we do things:

Listening precedes planning


Differences and diversity can be instructive


Authority structures strive to be permission giving, rather than permission withholding


People support what they have a chance to create


Building people is a better strategy than building programs


Facilities and budgets are means not ends


Our Lord is interested in other things besides religion


Change is driven by vision (not structure)


Hospitality is a primary Church practice and precedes friendliness


Unresolved conflict is counter-productive
