CORE VALUES: DIVERSITY
We exist to see all tribes, tongues, and nations worship Jesus in the unity that is only found in the Gospel. True acceptance and love is only found in and through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Acts 10:34-35, Gal. 3:28, Eph. 2:14-16, Rev. 7:9)
When Jesus comes back to usher in the new heavens and new earth, there will be people from every nation, tribe, peoples, and languages all worshiping the Risen Lamb, Jesus!
The glorious mystery of the Gospel is that through Jesus, God is making his people out of all the nations! This leads us to rejoice diversity. No matter our background, race, social standing, political leanings, and current situations, God wants everyone to repent from our sin and turn to Him for forgiveness.
