OUR VALUES DRIVE US TO BE

FOR ALAMANCE COUNTY




Grace

We are a church of grace. God's grace allows us to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Because God first forgave us, we must forgive.
-Matthew 18:21-35


Relevance

We are a church that will be relevant to society.
While the message of the Gospel will never change, the methods need to change.
We must be flexible enough to meet the changing needs of those who are seeking God.
-Matt. 5:13-16, 1 Cor. 9:19-23; Luke 14:16-23


Accountability

As a Biblical community, we must be accountable to all members of the church family, in all areas of life. 

Conduct or beliefs in serious conflict with Biblical principles must be subject to the Biblical guidelines of church discipline

-Acts 2:42-47; 2 Cor. 13:5; Matt. 18:15-20; Matt. 5:23-24


Community

We are a New Testament church founded on Jesus Christ, 

that teaches Biblical truths, 

cares for the less fortunate, 

and values a relational culture among its members. 

-Acts 2:42-47


Equipping

All members are equally important, having spiritual gifts as determined by the Holy Spirit. 

It is the church's responsibility to equip members themselves to be ministers.

-Ephesians 4:7-13; 1 Cor. 12:22
