Our values serve as our compass as we check each individual activity in the life of our church against these five points:
WORK ON IT
CHANGE THE WORLD
If anything doesn't begin with all five, or result in all five, we don't do that thing!
GROWING TOGETHER IN FAITH THROUGH SERVICE
This is the particular and unique method we use to fulfill our mission. Our faith is understood, expressed, and strengthened through our SERVICE to our siblings and neighbors experiencing homelessness. Through various services, being in ministry with the deeply impoverished and those experiencing homelessness is the primary identity of this congregation.
