We the people

 

HEART OVER GIFT

We believe that character should exceed any ability, talent, or gift. 


GROWTH OVER COMFORT

WE COUNT THE COST. WE ARE A PEOPLE THAT HAVE HEART AND SPIRIT ABOUT THEM. WE HAVE A ‘WHATEVER IT TAKES MENTALITY,’ AND WE BELIEVE IN ORDER TO SEE PERSONAL AND CORPORATE GROWTH, COMFORT IS A SACRIFICE WE ARE WILLING TO MAKE.


HIGH RESOLUTION VISION

WE ARE MOST EFFECTIVE WHEN “AIMING AT THE SAME GOAL POST”—THE CLEARER THE VISION, THE BETTER THE EXECUTION. VISION WILL KEEP OUR EYES ON THE PRIZE.


WE LIVE BY: "WHY NOT?” 

WE WILL UNAPOLOGETICALLY EXHAUST EVERY OPTION TO SEE VISION UNFOLD AND FULFILLED SO THAT PEOPLE CAN EXPERIENCE AND CONNECT WITH GOD. IT’S NOT ABOUT WHAT HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE US, BUT WHAT COULD BE.


THE LIGHTS ARE ON AND EVERYONE IS HOME

WE LOVE TO PARTY! CHURCH SHOULD BE ENJOYED NOT ENDURED. WE WILL WORK HARD AND WE WILL CELEBRATE OUR WINS.


THE BOTTOM LINE

OUR VISION IS ALL ABOUT CONNECTING PEOPLE TO PEOPLE AND PEOPLE TO A GOD THAT’S ALL ABOUT PEOPLE.


LINE IN THE SAND

WE BELIEVE HUMANITY IS DEFINED BY ‘LINE IN THE SAND’ MOMENTS.  BAPTISMS ARE A ‘LINE IN THE SAND’, EXTERNAL DECLARATION OF AN INTERNAL COMMITMENT TO FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST.


OUR LIFE HIS EDIT

WE BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE ALLOW GOD TO EDIT OUR PLANS IN LIFE, WE ARRIVE AT A LIFE WE COULD ONLY DREAM OF.


EVERY GIVEN SUNDAY

“EVERY GIVEN SUNDAY” WE SHOW UP TO BE A PART OF A RADICAL LIFE AND A PASSIONATE EXPRESSION OF REAL PEOPLE LIVING OUT A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS-DAILY!


RUNS IN THE BLOOD

WE DON’T GIVE BECAUSE WE ‘HAVE TO’, WE GIVE BECAUSE WE ‘GET IT’.  WE GIVE BECAUSE IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.  WE GIVE FOR THOSE WHO ARE TO COME.  WE GIVE BECAUSE OF WHAT’S BEEN GIVEN TO US. PROVERBS 11:24-25 THE WORLD OF THE GENEROUS GETS LARGER AND LARGER; THE WORLD OF THE STINGY GETS SMALLER AND SMALLER.  THE ONE WHO BLESSES OTHERS IS ABUNDANTLY BLESSED; THOSE WHO HELP OTHERS ARE HELPED.


LAMPSTAND

WE ARE A CHURCH OF EXCELLENCE THAT WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES FOR PEOPLE TO KNOW JESUS IN AN ‘OUT OF THE BOX’ AND IN IRRELIGIOUS WAY. WE WILL CHALLENGE THE MUNDANE, THE STATUS QUO, AND WILL LIVE LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.


WE THE PEOPLE

WE BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE CHURCH WILL NOT BE BUILT ON THE HARD WORK OF A FEW BUT WILL BE BUILT WITH EVERYONE THAT CALLS IT HOME. “THE HOPE OF THE WORLD IS THE LOCAL CHURCH, AND THE HOPE OF THE LOCAL CHURCH IS THE VOLUNTEERS.” –BILL HYBELS.
