What We Believe

We believe that because everyone is created in the image of God, all people have great value and God-given potential and capacity.  Most of us have faced hard times or struggles at some point in our lives.  The body of Christ can walk alongside those in need and love them through their hardship.  Additionally, we want to equip each other to lead full and productive lives.

We have 10 core values:

  1. We are Christian.  Everything we think, say, and do is in the name of Christ.
  2. Prayer is an integral part of who we are.
  3. We follow Christ's example of valuing the poor and needy.
  4. We value unity of the Body of Christ.
  5. We value transformation in the lives of people and communities.
  6. We value churches living out the two great commandments to love God and love their neighbors.
  7. We value building Christ-like relationships.
  8. We value the connectedness of the Love INC movement.
  9. We model excellence.
  10. We value continually maturing in our capacity to meet people's needs.

We are united by a statement of faith:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to hell.
On the third day He rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness
of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.
