For God so loved the world that He gave His
one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall
not perish but have eternal life.
-John 3:16 (NIV)

We value the truth that all people matter to God and therefore to us. (1 John 2:1-2; Acts 1:8)

We value the gathered fellowship of believers. (Acts 2:42-47; Colossians 3:11-17)

We value life-long nurturing of the faith (Christian Education). (Ephesians 4:14-16; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Hebrews 5:11-6:3; Colossians 3:11-17)

We value the gifts of God’s people as they offer them in service, both individually and corporately, to the Church and the world. (Ephesians 4:7-13; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11;
1 Corinthians 12)

We value servant leadership. (Mark 10:35-45; Acts 28:3a; Mark 9:33-37; Philippians 2:1-11; Isaiah 61:1-3; John 13:14-17;
Isaiah 42:1-4)

We value integrity. (Genesis 39:9; James 1:22-25; Psalm 78:70-72; Ephesians 4:1-2, 14-16; Ezekiel 11:16-20: Jeremiah 31)

We value a trust in God and His people which frees us for responsible risk-taking. (Matthew 15:21-28; Genesis 18:16-33; Matthew 16:21; Acts 4:8-13)

Therefore we are committed to carry on this God-given, Spirit-driven ministry of Word and Sacrament through which He shares His love for us and empowers us to share His love with others.
