Our Core Values
Living As Family
We value pursuing unity as we practice indiscriminate love, regardless of social, economic, or racial status.
Being Rooted In Scripture
We value looking to the living, inspired, and inerrant Holy scriptures in all we do.
We value building authentic relationships, nurturing, and equipping to a point of maturity so we are able to go and do the same.
Serving The City
We value pursuing and promoting unity and biblical reconciliation by getting our hands dirty to help battle injustice and build the Kingdom in and around Jonesboro.
Advancing The Mission of Christ
We value supporting and planting new churches, both here and abroad.
In order to build relationships that love people this way is multi-generational, life on life, missional discipleship. This process involves building relationships with others, establishing them in their relationship with Christ, and nurturing their growth to maturity by equipping them to go and do the same with others.
We believe that God has designed the church to accomplish all of this.
This process of multi-generational, life on life, missional discipleship breaks down into three main components:
The foundation of any great community are devoted relationships. These take time to grow and a common desire to know Christ more. (Proverbs 27:17, Hebrews 10:25 )
We desire to grow in Christ as we learn to die to selfish ambition and to live for Him. We desire to have our hearts softened to resemble His. (Philippians 2:4-8, Micah 6:8)
We desire to go into the community and world, learning to love all of God’s creation with a Christ-like love as we open our hands to serve all those in it. (Matthew 22:37-40, Jeremiah 29:4-7)
