We will wrestle through ideas, thoughts, feelings and the truth of Scripture with God.
We are people of prayer
We value taking all our desires, feelings, thoughts, struggles and joys to God.
We are present in every moment with the Holy Spirit
We know the Holy Spirit is ready to help us and desires for us to capture every moment of Him speaking to us and through us.

We stay faithful with little. Jesus gives us more. We trust the story Jesus is telling.
VALUE #2 - RELATIONSHIP
We are people of relationship
We will chase for relationship and make sure we live in peace with everyone.
We build trust
The foundation of real relationship is trust. We will be a church that builds trust with as many as possible through our relationships and leadership. We will build trust by listening.

We forgive each other

We are learners
Self-starters and self-motivated to learn and grow and to listen deeply. We will live with a posture of humility.
