  • Exalting Christ first in all areas of our lives, both corporately and as individuals.
  • Making disciples who are...
    • Knowledgeable in God's word
    • Able to apply God's word to their daily lives
    • Bound together in Agape (self-sacrificing) love
    • Actively concerned for the well-being of the saints
  • Unleashing the saints to perform the ministry for which God has called and equipped them.
