Our Values

01

Gospel-Centered


While Gospels are all meant to portray the message of God’s Love, Grace and Forgiveness, we always try to sing about all other related issues, making spirituality an easier thing to apprehend!

02

Living Faith


This phrase means so much more than the simple words can convey. While visiting the church on Sunday is one thing, living your whole life in accordance with the principles of decency is another!

03

Missionary


Each minister at our church also sees himself as a kind of a missionary - preaching the word of God to all different kinds of people who all come from different backgrounds.

04

Relational


We value developing relationships in the church and out of the church. Being relational means taking the time to invest, care, and share in the life of others so that Christ is seen, felt, and heard.
