One Vision:
Love God, Love the Valley, and Love the Nations
Our church’s mission and vision are informed by The Great Commandment (Matt. 22:34-40) and The Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).  We believe this is the high calling of the church.  We express our vision by worshiping God in spirit and truth through corporate gatherings, and by serving each other as we love and serve the Mid-Valley area.  We love the nations through meeting practical, tangible needs in places outside of our own land and, most important, proclaiming the gospel—the great, good news of Jesus’ life, death, burial, and resurrection.

Two Goals:
To Make Disciples That Make Disciples
A practical way we “Love God, Love the Valley, and Love the Nations” is through making disciples, Christ-followers who point others to Jesus and help them learn to be His disciples. (Matt. 28:18-20)
To Plant Churches That Plant Churches
One of the greatest ways we can love God and love people is by planting churches.  We purposefully seek out, train, and send people to new locations to begin a gathering of Jesus followers that make disciples (new followers) and then send out their own people to plant (start) a new church.  We also support the church-planting efforts of the Acts 29 Network of churches. (Acts 28:31)

Three Commitments:
Spirit Filled
Simply asking the Holy Spirit to lead and direct our daily lives.  That will lead us to being… (Acts 1:8; Galatians 5:16-17; Ephesians 5:15-21)
Christ Centered
Everything comes from and points back to the gospel (the person and work of Jesus), which leads us to being… (Colossians 3:17; Galatians 2:20)
Serving Focused
Each and every follower of Jesus has gifts and passions that God has graciously placed in them.  As we ask God the Spirit to lead us to be Christ centered disciples, He will lead us to recognize and develop the gifts and skills He gave us to serve one another and glorify Him. (1 Pet. 4:10; Mark. 9:35)

Four Values:
We firmly believe the Bible is far more than simply a source of truth, it is Truth itself.  Truth, in pursuit of humankind, became man, who walked among us, and taught us principles upon which we could build our lives.  The Bible is not just a collection of teachings for the times in which it was written; it is relevant today, guiding us through the social and relational issues we face every day.  The message of Truth is eternal, it has not changed, it needs nothing added to it, and it withstands the test of time. (Psalm 119:160; John 8:31-32; John 14:6; 2 Tim. 3:16)
God, rich in grace and mercy, has woven us into a family.  We find acceptance and belonging within the embrace of community.  We will find that we have something to offer back.  We learn to lean on others when we are weak.  We learn to care when another’s strength wanes.  We learn to weep with the broken-hearted and to celebrate others’ victories.  In community we practice the art and discipline of servanthood, placing a higher value on the lives of others than upon our own.  We say “Together is Better”. (Psalm 133:1-3; Romans 12:4-5; Matt. 18:20)
One of the greatest gifts humankind has ever experienced is the access to worship the living God.  Our worship is more than singing songs and hymns or giving of tithes and offerings.  We believe worship is a life that is lived in obedience, service, and devotion to God. (John 4:24; Psalm 105:1; Romans 12:1)
Missional Living
We believe there is a mission in the midst of the madness; that we are called to be salt, a seasoning that influences our surroundings.  We are to reflect God’s light into a culture that is in the darkness.  We are to bind the wounds of the broken-hearted, to feed the hungry, and to clothe the naked. (Mark 16:15; Isaiah 6:8; John 20:21)
