CORE VALUES

TRUTH...
The bible is our guide and authority. It is God's written Word and is without error. it helps us understand ourselves and our world. The bible reveals God's heart and introduces us to Jesus Christ, God's Living Word. (II Timothy 3:16,17) - The Word of God is a powerful antidote to both keep us from sin and in breaking the power of sin over us. (Psalm 119:11)

WORSHIP...
Worship is a way of life- it includes song, prayer, teaching, listening, loving, the filling of the Holy Spirit and experiencing the presence of the Living Christ. It also includes meeting together regularly. (Hebrews 10:25; Ephesians 5:19) - Our desire is to present the Good News of Christ in a creative and worshipful setting which encourages and nurtures gifts to be used that will enhance our worship experience. We seek to use effectively, various fields of art such as: drama, dance, photography, video, sound reinforcement, and music.

COMMUNITY...
We prove our love for God by the way we love one another. (Hebrews 10:23-25). We purpose to have various small groups, regular times of non-agenda gatherings and by being a resource in the Chesapeake area to assist those who are in need of both spiritual and economic assistance. - Every person is valuable to God: both Christians and non-Christians. Because of this they are valuable to us as well.
