OUR CORE VALUES
"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love." (I John 4:7-8, NASB)
"As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,
but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written,
'YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.'" (I Peter 1:14-16, NASB)
"Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come
from the presence of the Lord." (Acts 3:19, NASB)
INERRANCY OF GOD'S WORD
"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction,
for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work."
(II Timothy 3:16-17, NASB)
SALVATION THROUGH CHRIST ALONE
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.'"
(John 14:6, NASB)
TEACHING THE GOSPEL
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son
and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always,
even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20, NASB)
