CORE VALUES

We are running to keep up with Jesus.

We will go wherever Jesus leads us.

Matthew 9:9; Philippians 3:12-14

• Surrender to and depend on the authority of Jesus.

• Choose Jesus over your own comfort.

• Embrace the necessity of change for the sake of the adventure.

• Drive what seems impossible with optimism and enthusiasm.


We will pursue Jesus with ridiculous joy.

Jesus is victorious, therefore so are we.

John 16:33; 1 Corinthians 15:56-58

• Jesus didn’t improve me. He made me new.

• Live free from your hurts, habits and hang-ups.

• Live out your God-sized purpose.

• Joy is attractional and contagious.

• Build powerful and significant relationships.


We are on a rescue mission.

We are relentless in His mission that no one is left behind.

Luke 19:10; 1 Corinthians 9:22-23

• Be trained. Be prepared. Be Aware.

• Do whatever it takes, short of sin, to reach people for Jesus.

• Boldly love people where they’re at even when it is dangerous and uncomfortable.

• Lead people to a growing relationship with Jesus.

• Be responsible to and for “One Another”.


We are conduits of the Gospel; not containers of it.

In everything we do, we will let God flow thru us.

John 13:34; Luke 6:38

• Lead with irrational generosity.

• Joyfully give of yourself through your time, talents and resources.

• Consistently connect with God; Read the Bible, pray, show up at church.

• Allow God to use others in meeting your needs.


We won’t get in His way.

No masks. No agendas. No excuses.

John 6:38; Hebrews 12:1-2

• Don’t make it about you.

• Submit and be accountable to one another.

• Allow the real you to be known; mess and all.

• Strip off everything that gets in the way of pursing Jesus and run.
