1.  Exalting God
We value exalting God as our highest priority in all we do as a church and as individual believers.
 Psalm 34:1
 “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
 
 Hebrews 13:15
“Continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge His name.”
2. Encouraging One Another
We value the importance of encouraging one another intentionally and pro-actively, in order to stay on track spiritually, and demonstrate a mutual concern and appreciation for each other. We recognize that all people desire healthy relationships in a culture that is fragmented and isolated in many ways.
3. Equip Believers
We value serving as the way believers fulfill their God-given purpose, and as the means God has given to the church for spiritual growth and unity.  Our heart is to consistently equip believers to serve faithfully, energetically, with a high level of commitment and passion so that the Lord might be glorified.
1 Corinthians 15:54
“Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain.”
4. Building Relationships
We value building relationships with people in the world around us – both locally and globally, by living authentic, transparent and genuine lives, in order to bring hope, peace and an understanding of what it means to have a personal relationship with God who created them. Jim Elliot stated, “Lord, make my way prosperous; not that I achieve high position, but that my life be an exhibit to the value of knowing God.”
