VALUES
 
GATHER
We value the gathering of the church on Sundays.  The gathering of the church is essential and vital to the life of disciples of Jesus. Sundays are a weekly rythym for worship together, praying together, and hearing the teaching of God’s word together. 
 
GROW
Discples of Jesus need to continuly grow in their love for Jesus and for one another.  This happens best in community.  As we continually go back to the gospel of grace, we learn to love one another as Christ has loved us.  The gospel becomes our motivation for growth.  In scripture the church is often describe as a family.  We want to be a good family who is together often, and a family who constantly points eachother back to the gospel.
 
GO
The Spirit sends the church.  The church is more than a weekend event, and far more than an organization to run.  The church is a movement.  This is evident in the gospel of Matthew through what is known as the great commission.  Here Jesus calls the church to GO into all the world and make disiples.  Baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Then, teaching others to follow all that Jesus commands.  Therefore we must GO as we continue to GATHER together and GROW together.
