Core Values Statement

We hold to the following Core Values:

1. We are a Christ-Centered Church – We believe it is the person of Jesus Christ

and the gospel, which is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.

(Romans 1:16; 1 Peter 4:11; Colossians 1:

2. We are a Bible-Based Church – We value sound Biblical theology in our

teaching and preaching. We seek to teach God’s Word with integrity and

authority so unchurched unbelievers find Christ, and believers mature in Him. (2

Timothy 3:16-17)

3. We are a Safe Church – We are committed to providing a spiritually,

emotionally, and physically safe environment where people can care for and love

one another as God’s truth and grace become a way of life. (John 8:32; Titus

2:11-12)

4. We are a Discipling Church – We value and are committed to discipleship

through biblical training and authentic modeling of our lives as active, intentional

followers of Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20)

5. We are a Missional and Serving Church — We are committed to Christ’s

mission in Manchester, the surrounding areas, and around the world; as well as

service, and the declaration of God’s worth to those who have yet to experience

the grace of God. We are committed to share the gospel with those for whom

religion is an outward duty devoid of joy and delight. We value moving out of our

building and into our community through God ordained relational connections as

well as a variety of acts of service, kindness, and generosity (Luke 4:18; 24:46-

48).
