1. Full devotion and surrender to the lordship and life of Jesus Christ is the commitment of biblical discipleship. Every Christian is called both to BE and to MAKE disciples (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, John 14:6-7, John 21:15-19, 1 Corinthians 11:1).
2. Christ followers should be committed to God’s word, and to prayer, and what follows is continual transformation (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Romans 12:1-2).
3. Biblical teaching and personal study is a catalyst for transformation in people’s lives (Psalm 119, Hebrews 4:12).
4. All Christians are called to fulfill the great commission by sharing Christ’s gospel and restoring hope in our community and the world (Matthew 28:18-20, Romans 1:16).
5. Every Christian should pray, look for, and expect opportunities to share their faith with people around them (Acts 1:8, 1 Peter 3:15-16).
6. Every Christian should discover, develop, and use their spiritual gifts by the power of the Holy Spirit within them (Romans 12:4-8, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11).
7. When Christians walk through life in unity with one another, serving and loving one another, a church becomes a biblical community (Ephesians 4:2-5, Galatians 5:13).
8. Missional communities are the biblical way to build lasting relationships, to grow in discipleship to Jesus, and to serve as missionaries in their world (Acts 2:42-47, Hebrews 10:23-25).
9. The church should be culturally relevant, while remaining doctrinally pure (1 Corinthians 9:19-23, Titus 1:9).
10. Christians are called by God to be good stewards, managers, and caretakers of their time, talent, and treasure, remembering that every resource in their possession belongs to God (Malachi 3:10-11, Matthew 25:14-30).
11. Christians are called to financial freedom through debt free living and to live generously with open hands (Romans 13:8, Matthew 10:8).
12. God is calling His people to authentic worship in spirit and truth. Worship is the sum of our purposeful life pursuit to honor God in all that we do (John 4:23-24, Colossians 3:17).
13. The sacraments of communion and baptism are ways to both obey and connect with with heart of God. They symbolize and remind us of the work of the Trinity both historically and today (Acts 2:38-39, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
