Core Values

Defining The Core Values

Our three Core Values are very simple. First, we believe that it is our responsibility to LOVE God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and to LOVE others, as we love ourselves. Second, we believe that it is our responsibility to GROW and mature in Christ and with the Body of Christ. Third, we believe that we are called to SERVE God and others in order to fulfill the will of God.
