Grace Oriented

We believe in motivating people through love and gratitude toward God rather than through guilt or shame.  We strive to give grace to others because of the amazing grace God has granted us. (Galatians 5:22 – 23; John 1:16 – 17; Ephesians 2:4 – 10, 2 Peter 3:18)

Family Affirming

We seek to provide a ministry environment that strengthens marriages and families.  We make it a priority to provide biblically faithful Christian instruction for children and youth which is age appropriate, fun and engaging. We also prioritize resourcing parents so they can fulfill their God-given calling to train their children and youth in the faith.   (Mark 10:13 – 16, Matthew 19:5, Ephesians 5:21 – 33)

Missionally Motivated

We are motivated by the mission Jesus gave us to make disciples of people from all nations. This motivation inspires us to spread of the gospel around the world, not just in our community. To this end we provide monthly financial support to many missionaries and missions organizations. (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8, Luke 19:10, John 17:18 and John 20:21 – 22)

We value learning which leads to living. Our goal is not information acquisition but life transformation! (Acts 2:39, 42, Ephesians 4:15–16, and 2 Peter 1:5–11)
