about us

our values

We value people becoming followers of Jesus Christ.
  1. We believe God commands us to engage the harvest by bringing all people into a vital saving relationship with Jesus; therefore, we exhort each church to effectively impact their community through servant evangelism and to multiply through planting new churches in new communities.
  2. We believe God commands us to provide a healthy church family for new believers as well as for the unchurched; therefore, we promote the revitalizing and renewal of existing churches through prayer, assessment tools and trained coaches who can walk with them into health.
  3. We believe God commands us to disciple believers to experience the cleansing and empowering of the Holy Spirit in order to live holy lives out of a pure heart; therefore, a goal of discipleship, preaching, and teaching is to lead believers into this deeper life.
  4. We believe God commands us to make disciples of all people; therefore, we actively recruit, appoint and place people overseas as well as working with ethnic groups in the United States. We partner with national churches as well as other mission groups to accomplish this mission.

We value God's revelation to us through Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, prayer and the church.

  1. We believe in a vital holy relationship with Jesus Christ; therefore, we boldly proclaim the necessity of being cleansed from sin through the in-filling of the Holy Spirit so that we may be Christ-like.
  2. We believe the Bible is God's inerrant revelation; therefore, we encourage all believers to engage in its systematic reading and study.
  3. We believe in prayer; therefore, we promote the Intercessor teams, being alert to prayer opportunities in every gathering and prayer emphasis in the denominational publications.
  4. We believe in the local church being a place of grace and growth where there is flexibility in worship and organization, with an adherence to the tenets of Faith.
We value the resources God gives us in leadership and money.
  1. We believe that God entrusts us with leaders; therefore, we are developing a system of assessing, coaching and continuing education to enable them to be more effective ministers of the gospel.
  2. We believe that God entrusts money to us for expanding His Kingdom; therefore, outreach will be a priority in spending.
