Vision and Values

Our purpose is to help people begin and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our vision is that this will result in...

1. Changed Lives
As a church we have taken seriously the challenge Christ gave us, known as the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:18-20)

We seek to help one another become authentic followers of Christ. We do this through corporate worship, teaching, deep friendships, and community life together.

We seek to help others begin this process by providing them with the opportunity to make an informed decision to follow Christ in the context of a caring relationship.

2. Community Impact 
We have accepted responsibility for the spiritual life of the greater community in the central Baltimore-Washington Corridor. Thus, we will be actively engaged in its day-to-day life: We will model the love of Christ to its government, schools, and business community. We expect God to call individuals from our congregation to affect each of these areas of community life.

3. Global Outreach 
We have accepted responsibility to carry the good news of Christ beyond our own community to our region and even to distant parts of the world. (Acts 1:8) 

We are convinced that the most effective means of achieving this end is through the establishment of new churches, and will will work diligently to assist in their birth.

We are convinced that our priority must be in reaching those who are not involved in a church and particularly those who have never heard the gospel.  (2 Cor. 10:15b-18) We understand that this will affect how we plan our strategy here at home and around the world. We understand that we will have to say 'no' to many worthwhile projects in order to concentrate on this priority.

4. Glory to Christ 
We seek to uphold the honor of Christ until He returns in all His glory. We seek to conform our characters to His, to continually declare His goodness, and to promote vital, vibrant worship among His followers.
