LAWS OF MOTION
There are certain values we believe are necessary to live out the mission of leading people to live and move and have their being in Jesus Christ. We refer to them as the "Laws of Motion".
God created us with the desire and necessity to be in genuine community. Community offers accountability and encouragement that is biblical and necessary in the age we live in.
What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul? We will be diligent, work extremely hard and put in the time necessary to complete the fundamental elements of our experiences, but not at the expense of our families or our relationship with God.
While we fully understand perfection is out of the question, we will still strive as a church to display integrity in every area. We want transparency in our personal lives, and in the daily operations of the church.
We will be a giving church. Giving to the vision, the community and other worthy causes. Proverbs 21:26- There are those who covet greedily all the day long; But the righteous give and don't withhold.
It has been our experience that most people who genuinely respond to the Gospel do so through a close, personal relationship with a follower of Christ. The culture we live in doesn't seem to respond to the church and evangelism the way that it did 20 years ago.
If you are going to do it, do it right. Everything we do as a church should be done well. After all, we represent the greatest focal point of the greatest message of all time. Services, facility, ministries, etc.
Our experiences will remain relevant to the audience that we are trying to influence to live their lives in Christ. Although our goal is ultimately to create mature followers, we won't do so at the expense of those far from
God. Acts 15:19- It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God.
