What we value...

We exist to embody and declare God's redemptive story to every Houstonian. Our values serve as a path that continually guides us toward our mission.

enjoy god

We chase joy and believe it will be maximized as we know, love, and walk with God. He is a person and ours is a relational journey with him, full of ever-expanding joy. (Psalm 4:6-8, 16:1-11; Philippians 4:4-8; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Revelation 21:1-4)

love neighbor

We love people – all of them, without exception. As a community who has met God and been renewed by his grace, we cannot help but love those who bear his image. (Mark 12:29-31; James 2:1-13; Luke 15)

 

embrace family

We love the local church and embrace it as our family. God is a good father, Jesus our older brother, and we are siblings knit together by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 8:12-17,29; 1 Thessalonians 2:7-8; 1 Timothy 5:1-2)

 

reveal truth

We are fearlessly committed to the truth, both about ourselves and about God. His Word is to be treasured and we will be an honest, humble people in his presence. (John 1:14; Acts 20:20, 26-27; Ephesians 4:15-16; James 5:16; Revelation 22:18-19)

 

FACILITATE MOVEMENT

God is on the move in the world and we want to be a part of what he's doing. Movement cannot be manipulated but can be experienced where multiplication and partnership meet. (Matthew 9:36-38; 28:16-20; John 17:20-23; Acts 1:8; 13:1-3; Philippians 4:14-20)
