Our Big Rocks (Core Values)




  1. Bible Centric
    1. The Bible is Jesus’ words written down for us to follow. Scripture teaches that in order to love and seek Jesus, we must follow His words. This means we do what the Bible says. It also means that what we do comes from the Bible. We strive to be Bible Centric.
      1. John 14:21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Matthew 6:33; Hebrews 4:12; Deuteronomy 8:6
  2. Prayer Foundational
    1. The Bible teaches that prayer is foundational to a right relationship with God. We must talk with God and listen to Him in order to have an intimate relationship. Therefore, prayer is a foundational practice of who we are as Christians. We strive to be Prayer Foundational.
      1. Philippians 4:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; James 5:16; 1 Tim 2:1-4; Matthew 26:36
  3. Spirit Filled
    1. The Bible teaches those who enter God’s family receive the Spirit of God into their hearts. Those who live according to what the Spirt says will display the character of God (fruit of the Spirit) in their daily lives through their interactions with people and circumstances. Those who are spirit filled seek to do what is pleasing to the spirit of Jesus. We strive to be Spirit-Filled.
      1. Acts 6:3; Galatians 4:6, Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Peter 1:2
  4. Evangelism Fixated
    1. The Bible teaches that a follower of Jesus shares the good news of Jesus Christ (Death, Burial, Resurrection) with others. It also teaches that God’s system of communicating that good news is through His followers. Therefore, as followers of Jesus, we must fixate on sharing the good news with our community in a way that gives them opportunity to respond favorably and come to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We strive to be Evangelism Fixated.
      1. Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:20; John 3:16-17; Romans 10:17
  5. Community Focused
    1. The Bible teaches that community is part of God’s creation. God desires for the body of believers to be a community that proclaims to the world Who Jesus is. We must focus on building community among the believers while focusing on reaching the community in which we live. We strive to be Community Focused.
      1. Acts 2:42-47; Galatians 6:2; Ecc 4:9-12; 1 Peter 2:9-10; Proverbs 27:17
