“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
We wholly depend upon the power of the Holy Spirit – made available to us through faith in Christ – to entirely transform and continually grow us.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
We forge deep, authentic relationships and communities in which all people can be fully known and experience the grace and transforming power of Jesus Christ.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7
We live and declare an unashamed allegiance to the biblical, historical, and orthodox truths of the gospel no matter the cost.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.’” Romans 1:16-17
We deploy our lives, resources, and gifts for God’s glory and the advancement of the gospel.
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
