Reaching Out to others with the life transforming experience of knowing Jesus Christ;

Raising Up one another in the truth of God's Word, the Bible, to strengthen our faith in and relationship with Christ;

Reverencing Christ Together with a mutually shared heart for worshiping God on Sunday and each day of the week.
