We will not accept gossip and slander
We will not accept church bullies
Philippians 4:8 KJV 1900
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Proverbs 17:14 KJV 1900

We will welcome the community
We will embrace balanced change
We will be a magnet for families desiring church based on the foundations of the bible

We will accept differences in others
We will honor the past but understand the future may have different methods
We live out the Gospel
We will be known for what we are for not just what we are against
Hebrews 10:24 KJV 1900
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
