Guided by the Holy Spirit, our core values are...
"Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ..." Ephesians 4:12
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the foundation on which we base, steward, and measure our influence.
"Iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17
Our commitment is defined by action that inspires, attracts, and unites others through an intentional and consistent practice of authenticity.
"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace..." 1 Peter 4:10
We elevate God's work and others' interests above our own, so that by working together we will realize the greatest good.
"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Romans 12:2
We actively engage in the process of increasing our capacity to serve.
