We exist to glorify God
by multiplying disciples, leaders and churches
who believe the gospel, grow in Christ and go to the lost.
…is to reach Meridian, Boise, the Treasure Valley and all of Idaho with the gospel by planting a church that will reach the lost, develop leaders and send out other church planters in order to multiply gospel proclaiming churches in the Pacific Northwest.
What we value most is the glory of God. His glory is our highest pursuit and our greatest ambition (Romans 11:36). We value genuine worship, rooted in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). Worship without truth is blind and worship without spirit is empty. We value humble dependence upon God in all things (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
We value the Bible as our final authority and the foundation upon which we build all of our ministry. We value expository preaching because every verse of the Bible has been breathed out by God (2 Timothy 3:16). We value Biblical Counseling because in the Bible, God has given us all we need “for life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3).
We value community and relationships because the Christian life was not intended to be lived alone.We value a culture of discipleship and grace, one in which personal growth is pursued by all and grace and patience are extended to all as we follow Jesus together. We value serving and ministering to others, each person using their spiritual gifts to build up the church in the love of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16).
We value a culture of personal evangelism, where every member is an ambassador for Christ, reaching those around them with a message of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:20). We value involvement in our community, that we might reach them with the gospel. We value a “go and tell” attitude rather than a “come and see” mindset.
