Philosophy of Ministry
In order to accomplish our mission we will faithfully pursue seven basic philosophies in our ministries:
- EXALT the Savior through dynamic worship.
- EVANGELIZE the Unbeliever through outreach.
- ESTABLISH the New Believer in the basic doctrines of the faith.
- ENCOURAGE every Believer to cultivate an intimate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
- EQUIP every Believer to do ministry through gift identification.
- EDIFY one another through the exercising of spiritual gifts.
- EMBRACE one another so that everyone feels loved, cared for, and accepted and enjoys being a part of our fellowship.
