Core Values

Our Core Values Are…

Valuing People

We value people because God has given everyone eternal value. Each person has destiny, purpose and meaning. We intentionally value each person, so they can discover God’s perfect plan for their life.

Acceptance

Our Vision is to, “Love anyone from anywhere into a personal relationship with Jesus!” The foundation of that vision starts with acceptance. We believe that Jesus accepts everyone just as they are and He loves us too much to leave us that way.

Servanthood

Jesus measured greatness in terms of service, not status and we are all about creating a culture that will better serve our church, our community and our world. The happiest people on the planet are those who are making a difference in the lives of others!

Change

We contend to never compromise the message of the gospel, but will consistently seek to improve our methods. Having this attitude of teachability allows us to understand that we will never fully “arrive.”

Excellence

We are relentless about the details and we operate with urgency, because we know what is at stake. We strive for excellence in every area within our church. Why? Because what we do represents God, so the quality of our ministry is incredibly important.

Growth

There are over 1 million reasons why we choose to value numerical growth, and they all live in Montgomery County, Maryland.

Active Faith

We believe that God wants us to multiply disciples; rather than just add “Church Members.” Our faith in Jesus is alive and growing, therefore we desire to share the message of Jesus anywhere, anytime, and with anyone.

Gratitude

We know that everything we have comes from God, so we will not take Him or His people for granted and we will forever be grateful for His provision.

Teamwork

The magnitude of what’s at stake (Eternity) requires a united effort; we must have an “all hands on deck” approach, which means each one of us using our time, talents, and financial resources to serve the local church.

The Great Commission

With every breath Jesus breathed while on earth, He worked to bring people closer to God and He commissioned us to do the same! As followers of Jesus we live to reach the world. With that understanding, we have to be more concerned with the lost people we are trying to reach, than the people we are trying to keep.
