• Preparing: Because transformation occurs through discipleship, we will equip individuals and families to live up, in, and out where they live, work, and play ◊ UP: By cultivating God-glorifying and Christ-centered worship ◊ IN: By enriching relationships within the body of Christ through intentional community, hospitality, assimilation of newcomers, and regular play and celebration, AND by shaping and equipping God’s people so that they increasingly bear the likeness of our Savior ◊ OUT: By personally and communally engaging in evangelism and outreach AND by sacrificially investing our personal and church resources to advance God’s Kingdom

• Participating: Because disciples are ambassadors for Christ, sent for the sake of the world, we will engage and partner for community and global impact
