Core Values

Core Values

We teach through the whole Bible

The Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God, given for our benefit and instruction. So we take the time to study the entirety of God’s Word in order to understand it and apply it to our everyday lives.

We love each other like family

God has given us unity of purpose in Christ, and called us to have unity in fellowship. So we love and support one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, through peace and conflict, no matter what

We pray

Jesus gave us access to the throne room of God in His name through prayer to receive whatever we ask for. So we pray together often, expectant that God will be true to His Word, and that we will encounter His presence.

We strive for holiness

The Holy Spirit dwells within us, sanctifying us to be more and more like Jesus. So we take personal integrity seriously and will not rest until we have grown into mature Christian disciples.

We work as a team

Every Christian is valuable and necessary for the Church to function properly. So we build teams to do the work of ministry and we urge every believer to get in the game.

We engage in corporate worship

While all life should be an act of worship, Scripture gives special honor to the people of God making music together. So we give glory to God through dynamic, corporate praise and worship music

We take the Gospel to the whole world

Jesus commissioned us to preach the Good News to every creature. So we reach out to evangelize Lynchburg in many ways, and work to multiply our efforts by planting churches around the world.

We walk together with grace

God has shown us overwhelming patience and compassion through Jesus Christ. So we treat one another with forgiveness and love in all things

We take bold steps of faith

God honors those who take Him at His Word and step out in brave obedience. So we try new things, unafraid of small beginnings and messy middles, as we work towards excellent endings.

We seek after spiritual gifts

Christ gave to each believer the manifestation of the Spirit for the benefit of all. So we encourage each other to discover these gifts, and give the opportunity for them to be used.
