  • Love – We endeavor to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love others unconditionally.
  • Prayer – We abide in God through prayer, and in turn God releases His will and power in and through prayer.
  • Community – We share community with other Christ followers by encouraging one another through relationships of love, trust, authenticity, and transparency.
  • Generosity – Out of an overflow of love for Jesus Christ, we joyfully and generously give our time, talents, and treasure for God’s glory and others’ needs.
  • Reach – God has called us to lead others to love and follow Jesus with a reach that extends from Garland County to the ends of the earth.
