Transparency – With Christ and one another.
Our relationship with Jesus should be raw and honest. He knows everything, so it’s worth telling Him everything. It is this practice of transparency with the Father that opens an intimate and tangible relationship with meaningful implications for our lives.
We open ourselves up to others. We are called to be transparent with one another. Not to lie about anything. When we lie, we say that the person we are lying to doesn’t deserve the truth, therefore devaluing that person. So we strive to be transparent in our relationships.
We desire to be transparent from the church organization to it’s congregation. We adhere to be transparent with the scriptures, our pursuits, and our finances.
Community – With Christ and one another.
Being in community with Christ means we strive to be in His word, in prayer, and in remembrance of what He has done for us.
Having community with one another means we share in each others lives. We invest in each other and we lift each other up as Christ has called us to treat one another.
Change – from Christ to us and through us.
We desire to change the world around us. But in order to do so, we must first see what needs to be changed in our own lives. We believe that Christ changes us from the inside out to draw us close to Him and to show others the change in us. (1 Timothy 1:15-17). We partner with organizations both locally and globally to help bring about positive change reflecting the glory of God.
