Our Values

Know (focus is upward-on Christ)
(Unity, love, consideration) To reach students through Relationships (small Groups) God is relational. He has limited our ability to be just like Him to being like Him. It is in this way He has called us to community. God put on flesh to step into the actual humanity of man and meet them where they are. 1 Peter 2:9: But ye are a chosen generation…

Own (focus is inward-on themselves)
