  • TRUTH – Anchoring the foundation of our belief and purpose in God’s unchanging and inerrant truth found in the Bible about His Good News, the Gospel. (Bible references: Daniel 7:14, Matthew 28:18, John 17:2, 2 Timothy 3:16)
  • AUTHENTICITY – Being real and transparent about ourselves and in everything we do and say because we’re living for an audience of One. (1 John 1:7-9, Proverbs 3:5,6, 2 Corinthians 2:17, Colossians 3:17, Proverbs 28:13)
  • SERVICE – Exhibiting Christ’s love through inside-out living by serving sacrificially and unselfishly to our community and the world. (Romans 12:10, John 13:34-35, Ephesians 6:7)
  • TRANSFORMATION – Being renewed in our hearts and minds daily through the Bible to live gospel-centered lives that will impact and transform the community. (1 Timothy 1:5, Romans 12:2, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Ephesians 4:22-24, Matthew 5:14-16, Luke 5:32)
  • IDENTITY – Understanding our ethnic heritage and cultural distinctives and finding our ultimate identity in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17, Galatians 3:28, 1 Peter 2:9, Galatians 2:20, 1 Corinthians 12:27)
  • EMPOWERMENT – Raising up and developing the next generation of leaders who are passionate about God and focus on things bigger than themselves. We want to empower students to love and to lead not just to those in their own culture or ethnicity but all people because God is One who is much greater than the dividing lines that may separate each one of us. (Acts 1:8, Ephesians 4:12, 2 Timothy 2:2, Revelations 7:9)
