Intentional Acts of Kindness
How we feel about it: Love
Inward: We believe that love looks like making wrong things right. As we come to know the nature of God, we are empowered to do things that make His kindness tangible. This requires that we offer our time, our money, our will, and our energy to God so that He can be known through our lives. — James 2:17 & 1 John 3:18
Outward: Justice allows the kingdom to become evident so that people can believe in it. This means that we regularly take action to feed, comfort, encourage, empower and liberate those around us. — Matthew 4:17
We Celebrate Gospel Actions
Creating Healthy Relationships
How we feel about it: Joy
Inward: We believe wholeness looks like learning to love ourselves the way God loves us so that we can love people the way God loves people. Our personal journey of physical, emotional, and relational health is central to our life as a disciple of Jesus. As we cultivate a thriving internal world, we model the wholeness that we are inviting a broken world to receive. We must be disciples in order to make disciples.
Outward: We believe the world will learn to follow Jesus by following us. As we see people saved, healed, and delivered, we also make space in our life to connect with them so that they learn the ways of Jesus. This looks like inviting them to moments where they can study the Bible, spend time in worship with other believers, and begin to adopt this way of life. We believe we cannot truly disciple people unless they are a part of our life in some way. — Matthew 28:19
We Celebrate People
How we feel about it: Confidence
Inward: We believe that salvation qualifies and equips everyone to make Jesus known to the people around them. Because of this, we are diligent to go on a personal journey of discovering the unique ways that we were designed to share the Gospel with those in our lives. Jesus can use whoever will surrender to his passion for people, regardless of personality, gifting, or strengths.
Outward: We believe that the Gospel works all the time, everywhere, and with everyone. We allow God to move through us at home, at work, at school, and in all areas of our lives. We are a diverse group of people with the same passion: To win for the Lamb the rewards of His suffering. — Isaiah 61
