We believe that excellence honors God and inspires people. We will do our very best with the resources God has given us. We do not seek perfection, rather we will prepare, pray, and thoughtfully approach all that we do with excellence in order to honor God.
We believe that fun creates bonds between people. God has made us to experience joy. When we meet together we desire to create positive and memorable experiences. Fun comes through laughter, time together, family, and celebration.

We believe that God has given every person gifts and talents. As His servants, we will strive to listen and lead with integrity and courage; giving opportunity to succeed and freedom to fail. God has given His church a vision of hope for our world. We will build trust to influence our community for Christ.
