Vision and Values
Our vision is to be a diverse community who live by faith, who are known for their love and who are a voice of hope.
It is our desire to reflect the diversity of our city, which includes people from different cultures, ethnicities, generations, socioeconomic status, education, and religious backgrounds. We also believe that everyone has a unique story of faith. We believe that God takes broken people and creates a beautiful Mosaic for His purpose.
True diversity exists when different people are united by common values. It is like “glue” that holds a Mosaic together. Here are our four values:
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek. Psalm 27:8 (NIV)
The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Romans 8:11 (NLT)
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV)
When I am with people whose faith is weak, I live as they do to win them. I do everything I can to win everyone I possibly can. 1 Corinthians 9:22 (CEV)
May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation – the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ – for this will bring much glory and praise to God. Philippians 1:11 (NLT)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV)
Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place. Psalm 51:6 (NIV)
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27 (NLT)
