- Gather to hear from God though His Word, the Bible
Preaching and teaching the Bible is central to all we do. We encourage personal and home Bible study, but the church is our training ground. People throughout our world are longing to hear a word from God. We hear directly from Him each time we gather.
- Gather to speak to Him in prayer
Having a personal prayer life is essential to walking with the Lord. But throughout the Bible, God works in amazing ways when His people gather in one accord to pray. We are focused not only on praying for our own needs, but for the deepest needs of others. We regularly gather to pray for the persecuted, the nations and our neighbors.
- Gather to worship Him through the expression of the talents and gifts He has given us
The Bible repeatedly tells us that God has given people certain gifts so His churches will be built up and Christ will be magnified. It is our desire to give people the opportunity to express those gifts in corporate worship—not as personal performances, but as means to lead the congregation in expressing worship to God.
- Scatter to serve Him by devoting our whole lives to Him
Relationship with God doesn’t just happen during the times we are gathered together. Relationship with God happens as we scatter as His witnesses. Our relationship with God impacts and transforms every area of our lives, making us living sacrifices to Him in everything we do.

We are not a group of people who gather on Sundays as cordial, plastic social club strangers. We are growing every day in our love for each other. We strive to live life together and share in each other’s joys and sorrows.
- In our schools, workplaces and community
God has placed each of us in the environment where we are so that we might influence and impact those He has placed around us. Jesus told us to be salt and light in a world that desperately needs it—starting with those closest to us. We will bring influence by continually sharing the gospel, living like Jesus, and being the best students, bosses, workers and community members we can be.
- In our town, region and world
We understand that if we’re going to impact the world, we have to engage the world like Jesus told us to. We are not here to build a fortress to hide behind. We will actively seek to build relationships with people in our town, our region and even our world who are far from God. We believe that if we’re going to introduce people to our friend Jesus, we need to first be their friends.
