values

Following Jesus’ lead, we seek out the lost, the oppressed, and the forgotten in every corner of the world. We tell people about Jesus, we serve people like Jesus, and we love all people like Jesus. Our understanding of Giving our lives away on mission is grounded in Micah 6:8, which calls us to “...walk humbly, act justly, and to love mercy." We seek to both do justice and extend mercy in our outreach efforts. The values of justice and mercy shape who we are and how we show up for those in need.

These are our five outreach values.

  • Mercy

  • Reconciliation

  • Evangelism
