"Create a culture by design, not default" - Walt Disney
WE ARE UNITED UNDER ONE VISION
To reach the people no one else is reaching, we will do the things no one else is doing.
We will do ANYTHING short of sin to reach people far from God. We will aggressively defend our unity and vision.
FOUND PEOPLE FIND PEOPLE
The church is a rescue organization, not a social club! We will not cater to personal preference in our mission to engage this region. We are more concerned with the people we are trying to reach than the people we are trying to keep.
We are only as "deep" as the last person we served!
We are less Atari and more Apple, joining God's progressive movement of changed lives. We will always maintain a posture of learning new methods. We will always narrow the focus in all we do. We think steps, not programs.
DON'T STICK YOUR TOE INTO THE WATER... CANNONBALL!
When we do something in the name of Christ for the fame of Christ, we do it RIGHT and do it BIG! We believe that undistracting excellence honors God and inspires people. We place a disproportionate value on creating a worship experience that boldly celebrates Jesus Christ and attracts people far from God (Jesus attracted huge crowds!).
WE WILL BE KNOWN FOR WHAT WE ARE FOR
We will speak vision and life over our people. We choose to leverage humor over hammer.
We will lift up the life-giving power of Jesus Christ rather than using our platform to condemn.
WE ARE A GENERATION OF HONOR AND INTEGRITY
We do not gossip. No insider politics here. And we are not competing with any churches.
Full of honor and integrity, we will do the right thing even when it hurts.
Our heart is to out-love, out-serve, and out-give those who misunderstand us.
WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERS
Every number represents a person made in God's image. The Bible tracks numbers (see: Acts).
We count and keep track of money; shouldn't we count and keep track of people who are more valuable?!
Tracking metrics measures effectiveness.
We will unapologetically celebrate life change!
