GOD IS GOOD

God is generous. As we remember and retell what He has done in testimonies, He’s able and eager to do it again. (John 3:16; Revelation 12:11, 19:10; Joshua 4:1-9)

SALVATION CREATES IDENTITY

We are new creations, not merely “sinners saved by grace,” but saints who have been given His righteousness. (2 Cor. 5:17; 2 Cor. 5:21; Rom. 1:17; Rom. 3:28; Rom. 8:29-30)

GENEROUS LIKE MY FATHER

God is extravagantly generous and our generosity is a response and reflection of Him. He is a good Father who gives good gifts to His children.
(James 1:17; Ps 103:1-5; John 3:16)

FOCUSED ON HIS PRESENCE

God delights in us and has always desired to be with us. We focus on His presence because we have discovered He is focused on us.
(Eph. 1:4-5; Zeph. 3:17; John 6:44; Jer. 31:3; Ps. 65:4)

SUPERNATURAL MINISTRY

Faith requires us to step beyond fear and take risks while humbly honoring the environment in which we are ministering.
(Matt 9:28-29; Matt 17:2; Math 14:24-33; Acts 3:1-10; Heb 11:1; James 2:14-18)

CREATING HEALTHY FAMILIES

We think like healthy family members by doing what’s best for the whole environment and submitting to one another and by not being selfish. (Eph. 5:21; Gal. 5:13; Phil. 2:3; Rom. 12:9-21)

HIS KINGDOM IS ADVANCING

We believe and live the prayer, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as in heaven.” Therefore, we partner with the King in natural and supernatural ways to create mercy, justice, and righteousness until He comes.
(Matt. 6:9-10; Matt. 10:42; Matt. 25:40; Matt. 10:7-8; John 14:12)

FREE AND RESPONSIBLE

Freedom and responsibility cannot be separated. We experience freedom when we are able to control ourselves. So we cooperate with the Holy Spirit as He produces the fruit of self-control in us. (Gal. 5:16-25; Rom. 8:12-13; 2 Pet. 1:5-9)

HOPE IN A
GLORIOUS BRIDE

We are not looking to escape the world but to see Christ’s victory manifested in individuals and nations even in the face of resistance and conflict.
(Luke 10:2-3; Matt. 28:18-19; Phil. 3:12-14; Heb. 12:1-3; Rev. 11:15)

GODS WORD TRANSFORMS

We encounter God in the Word, and faith is released into our lives. As we study Scripture, it empowers us who God is, who we are and how He wants us to live. (Ps. 119:105; Matt. 7:24-28; John 8:31-32; John 17:17; Rom. 10:17; Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 10:1-13; 1 Thess. 2:13; Col. 3:15-17)

HONOR AFFIRMS
VALUE

Honor recognizes and affirms how valuable and powerful other people are because they are made in His image and He died to restore them to relationship. We are significant. (Gen. 1:26; Eph. 4:22-24; Rom. 12:10)

GOD IS STILL
SPEAKING

Scripture calls us to earnestly desire the gift of prophecy, which is speaking on God’s behalf to strengthen, encourage and comfort people. So, we desire to say what the Father is saying in order to grow their identity and call out the purposes and treasure He has placed in them. (I Tim. 4:14-16; I Cor. 14:1-4, 24-25; Acts 13:1-3; Eph. 2:10; 1 John 4:17)

RESPONSIVE TO
GRACE

We experience both the astounding, undeserved love God has for us and His ongoing power to transform us. His transforming love and power are inseparable from one another. (John 3:16-17; Eph. 1:4-5; Rom. 5:6-11; Heb. 1:1-3)

CHRISTIAN
RIGHTS

"The word of God is a human right." is a phrase handed down to us by our founder Frank Kaleb Jansen. We carry on in this hope that all would have access to the word of God...
