"COMMISSIONED TO EQUIPPED AND COMMISSION MEN AND WOMEN FOR THE END TIME HARVEST"
1. Kingdom focused
We believe the
kingdom is both now and here and to come when we will live with Him forever. We
believe that God can and does work in supernatural ways in our lives and in our
world. Our goal is to extend the kingdom of God, not personal or corporate empires.
We believe the Church is to be a sign, foretaste and instrument of the Kingdom of God.
Biblically based and worshipful
We believe in the
authority of Scripture. Our approach to the Bible prioritizes transformation
over information — we seek to APPLY God's
Word to real-life situations. We value experience of God in worship, both
individually and in community.
We believe in the
power of God's grace to transform lives, and reject attempts to legislate the
Christian life through human rules, especially in gray areas. We embrace
diversity, respecting differences of belief in non-essentials. We deal with
issues redemptively rather than judicially. We aim at righteousness and
emphasize values and principles, avoiding legalism and rule setting.
A dynamic view of the Holy Spirit
We seek to avoid a
theology of excess and a theology of reaction. We hold an evangelical
Pentecostal view of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. We seek the Holy Spirit's
empowering without dictating how that should occur.
Purpose centered and people minded
We are a mission
movement with specific purpose and vision, yet we want to move in a way that
values people and relationships. While serious about accomplishing our tasks, we
are committed to healthy families and value children in our midst.
Developmental and GIFT based
We believe that
each person is a unique contribution to the kingdom of God, and it is our desire to see our
staff develop to their God-given potential. We emphasize the process of
Lifelong Development for leaders, encouraging giftedness discovery, decentralized
ministry, inclusion of women in leadership, and discovery and fulfillment of
Facilitative in leadership
We have clear lines
of authority and a specific mission mandate, vision, philosophy and strategy,
yet we are adaptable in how these are worked out, realizing that there are many
cultural and personal variables. We are flexible but focused, seeking to
empower our staff to fulfill their calling. We are committed to a team approach
We recognize that
church planting is both an art and a science. We strive to do things well, but
are willing to be innovative and take calculated risks. We step out in faith,
trusting God to provide in supernatural ways.
Balancing the strategic and supernatural
We seek both
spirituality and practicality. We believe that people's problems could be
demonically inflicted or psychologically induced or a combination of the two.
We believe in prayer meetings and planning meetings. We want to be spiritual
Authentic and transparent
"realness" over performance. We seek to be humble, friendly,
approachable, open, and teachable.
11. We love Jesus Christ and live
for His excellent glory and we love you and live to do all for your salvation
and establishment in the faith until Christ comes.
We are available to listen, talk with and ready to serve in any way
possible for the glory of God.
