Our Values

These values are foundational to who we are and how we show up in the world.

Jesus is Lord

The way of Jesus is our way. We recognize Jesus as the visible representation of the unseen God. In Christ, everything finds unity and remains connected. We long to worship Jesus by imitating his life and ministry. Both our theology and practice is relentlessly Christological. Jesus is our model, hero, mediator, healer, judge, and ruler of all. All of our values flow from what we understand about his character, concerns, and the practices of his ministry. (Jn 1:3-4, Jn 17:8, Acts 4:12, Eph 1:20-23, Eph 5:1-2, 1 Tim 2:5, Gal 2:20, Phil 2:5, Col 1:15-20, Heb 7:25, Heb 12:2, Rev 17:14)

The Bible

We trust the authority, reliability, and truth of all Scripture. In humility, we admit our limited understanding of God and His creation. Revealing transcendent truth, we rely on scripture to guide our lives. It teaches us, challenges misconceptions, and leads us away from self-deceptions. Seeing Jesus as the Word of God, we don't just obey but love scripture. It is a mirror, reflecting our true selves, and a window, revealing God’s beauty, wonder, and love. (2 Sam 7:28, Ps 18:30, Is 40:8, Matt 4:4, Lk 8:21, Lk 24:32, Jn 5:39, Acts 8:35, 2 Tim 3:16, Col 3:16, 1 Thess 2:13,  Heb 4:12-13, Rev 3:8)

Biblical Justice

We will live for the biblical concept of justice. We will take a prophetic stand against all kinds of evil, not only spiritual but also societal. All sin and injustice are adversaries to the Church and the Kingdom of God. Seeking the Kingdom is, in essence, a pursuit of justice. They are the same longing. In the kingdom, we find ultimate justice—not just punishment, but the restoration of wholeness, equality, and peace. Our commitment to justice compels us to seek the welfare of all and actively pursue the manifestation of God’s kingdom in our contexts, taking action where we have power and speaking up for justice where we have a voice. (Ps 96:10, Prov 31:9, Is 1:15-17, Ez 34:16, Matt 5:6, 6:10,12:18, Lk 11:42, Lk 18:7-8, Lk 19:8-10, Eph 6:12,1 Jn 3:18)

Culture & Ethnicity 

Every culture and ethnicity, while imperfect, reflects the mosaic of God’s own image, and together we better glorify and serve the God of creation. We believe that the church of Jesus Christ was meant to demonstrate the power of the gospel through reconciliation, repair, sincere unity, and the beauty of a multi-ethnic community. For that reason, we do not just admire multi-ethnic communities, but have a purpose to become one. We hope to accept, value, and give voice to the beauty and wisdom of every culture in our communities.  (Gen 1:27, Is 56:7, Dan 7:13-14, Jl 2:28, Mal 1:11, Jn 17:20-22, Acts 10:34-35, Acts 17:26-27, 1 Cor 12:12-14, Eph 2:14-22, Rev 7:9, Rev 14:6)


We firmly believe that each person has a unique assignment given by God, which the presence and active work of the Holy Spirit makes possible. It is the Spirit of God that empowers. For this reason, we work towards empowering each and every believer to hear, discern, and live out the calling of Jesus on their life. When surrendered to the light of Christ, their unique gifts and beauty create a resounding transformation. This type of empowerment equips every believer for their journey toward spiritual maturity and contributes to God’s redemptive plan. (Jn 14:26-27, Jn 20:22, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 6:3, Rom 8:9-11, Rom 8:15-17, Rom 12:3-8, 1 Cor 2:4-5, 1 Cor 2:9-16, 1 Cor 12, Eph 4:11-13, 1 Pet 2:9-10)

Prayer & Dependence

We aspire to a life of continuous prayer and responsive listening, seeing it as essential, not only for our spiritual health and transformation, but also as the foundation for all actions that are in accordance with God's intent. Prayer (in its various forms) is a necessary practice for remaining in communion with God, surrendering to His will, and reflecting His kingdom on earth. For us, prayer and action are inextricably linked. We pray because without God there is no sincere love, faithful resistance, or just action. If we do not pray and rely on Christ, we risk failure or arrogance in our successes. (Neh 4:9, Matt 5:44-45, Matt 6:33, Lk 11:9-13, Lk 18:1, Jn 15:7, Acts 6:4, 1 Thess 5:17, Phil 4:6, 2 Cor 3:5-6, Jam 2:14-17, Jam 5:13-16)
