Charting a Course

Our Core Doctrine:

The Scripture is complete, sufficient, and finished; therefore, it is fixed for all time.

Our Core Values:

The Scripture determines what we value as authentic disciples of Christ. It proclaims the driving force behind all that we do as a family.

Integrity is a discipline of life presented in the Scriptures, modeled by Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, in order that we become blameless in all things.

Servanthood desires to meet the legitimate spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of others as presented in the Scriptures, modeled by Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Scripture is God's specific revelation of truth to mankind; authored by Himself, recorded by men as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, so that it was complete and without error in the original writings. It has been preserved through the ages so it is mankind's final authority for all faith and practice.

Discipleship is the cyclical process by which authentic disciples reproduce themselves in a third spiritual generation by co-laboring with God in His work of drawing, converting, and training of His chosen ones as they are being conformed to Christ.

Relevancy is the lifestyle of an authentic disciple who lives and communicates truth in an understandable manner which neither distracts from nor compromises the truth as presented in the Scripture.

Worship is the act by which authentic disciples gladly reflect back God's worth as presented in the Scripture for His pleasure and their greatest delight (in other words, worship is why we were created to begin with).

Core Purpose Statement as a family:

We exist to bring God pleasure by stating His worth, by living out His supremacy in our lives, and by making authentic disciples of Christ through evangelizing the lost, nurturing and edifying the chosen wherever the Holy Spirit directs; so they can find their greatest satisfaction in Him (Of course we have three built in disciples to teach).

Proverbs 16:3

Commit your works to the Lord

And your plans will be established.
