GOSPEL

OUR HOPE IS THE PERSON AND WORK OF JESUS

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (1,10)

TRUTH

OUR AUTHORITY IS THE WORD OF GOD

“…to bring good news… to proclaim…” (1) 

FORMATION

OUR PRIORITY IS DISCIPLE-MAKING 

that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified. (3)

DEPENDENCE

WE PRAYERFULLY SUBMIT TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN HUMBLE REST AND FAITHFUL OBEDIENCE 

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me to bring…” (1)


COMMUNITY

WE COVENANT TOGETHER IN ALL OF LIFE AS SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD AND BROTHERS AND SISTERS TOGETHER

Their offspring shall be known among the nations, and their descendants in the midst of the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are an offspring the Lord has blessed. (9)

SERVANTS

WE OPEN UP OUR LIVES FOR THE FLOURISHING OF OUR NEIGHBORS AND NEIGHBORHOODS

They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. (4)

 

MULTI-CULTURAL

WE ALIGN EVERYTHING STRATEGICALLY FOR THE GLOBAL GLORY OF GOD BY PURSUING UNITY IN DIVERSITY OF ALL PEOPLE

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations. (11)


EQUIPPING

WE DEVELOP LEADERS TO SEE THE KINGDOM EXPAND AND CHURCHES MULTIPLIED

but you shall be called the priests of the Lord; they shall speak of you as the ministers of our God… (6)


JUSTICE

WE SEEK TO SEE BROKENNESS SET RIGHT THROUGH ENGAGING AS MINISTERS OF RECONCILIATION

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit… For I the Lord love justice;I hate robbery and wrong; I will faithfully give them their recompense, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. (1-3, 8)
