Value #1: Passion for Jesus
Above all else, we are committed to cultivating a passion for Jesus and magnifying Him in all things. Jesus, the matchlessly beautiful Son of God who was crucified to redeem the world and raised from the dead sitting at the right hand of the Father, is the unchallenged Sovereign of the universe and the only Name by which men are saved. As such, all that we believe and do centers around this Man. Jesus Christ alone is our magnificent obsession, and He alone is worthy to be worshiped for all of eternity. Intimacy with Jesus is our ultimate mandate and reward (Mark 12:30; Song 7:10).
Value #2: Priority of Worship and Prayer
We desire to minister to the Lord day and night through worship and prayer. We seek to move beyond normal prayer meetings to inspire and nurture a culture of prayer (Luke 18:7-8; Acts 6:4; Eph 5:18-20; Col 3:16; Rev 5:9).
Value #3: A Supreme Love and Allegiance to God’s Word
The Bible is the only eternal, infallible, unhindered, and inspired Word of God and as such, we desire to diligently study the Scriptures for private devotion and public proclamation (Matt 24:35; Ps 12:6; 2 Tim 2:9; 2 Tim 3:16).
Value #4: The Centrality of the Gospel
The Gospel of the Kingdom and our Lord Jesus Christ is of first importance and the majestic center of all that we do, believe, and teach. We believe the Gospel is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes and should pulse through all areas of our thoughts, relationships, actions, behaviors, feelings and purpose in life. When the Gospel is not the blazing center of all reality in our lives, nothing else truly makes sense (1 Cor 15:1-19; Rom 1:16).
Value #5: Urgency to Engage and Disciple the Unreached
While we recognize that not all believers are specifically called to engage the unreached peoples of the earth, we prioritize the unreached, unengaged people groups of the earth in our mission to finish the task of world evangelization (Matt 24:14; Rom 15:20).
Value #6: Obedience to the Holy Spirit
We are wholeheartedly submitted to the leadership of the Holy Spirit in our lives and seek to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit to love God and advance His Kingdom (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:8; Gal 5:16, 25; Eph 5:18).
Value #7: God-Centered Community
We intentionally seek to live in community as one in heart and in mind. Our relationships are not humanistic friendships or self-centered, but God-centered as we look to the Day that is approaching (John 13:34-35; Acts 2:42-47; Acts 4:32-37; Heb 10:24-25).
Value #8: The Crucified Life
As the redeemed, our lives are not our own and, as such, we joyfully surrender our reputations, relationships, time, strength, and resources before the cross of Jesus. We recognize that Jesus did not die on the cross only so that we would not have to, but He died on the cross to also show us how we could (Luke 9:23; Gal 2:20; 1 Pet 2:21-24).
Value #9: The Forerunner Ministry
We believe that we are quickly approaching the glorious Day when Jesus will return as the King of the earth. In these last days, we believe that the Lord will raise up forerunner messengers who proclaim the truth of the Blessed Hope. As such, we believe that a premillenial, post-tribulational understanding of God’s plan in the last days is crucial for our personal lives, but also our missions strategy.
