This is to be accomplished through the unity of the church body through these core beliefs:
Authentic Worship - We are to be a people living lives of authentic worship.
Prayer - We are to be a people dedicated to prayer.
Knowing God's Word - We are to be a people committed to learning the scriptures and being transformed by God through His Word.
Christ-Centered Community - We are to be a people empowered by God to live with Him and with one another in right relationship made possible through Christ.
Community Service - We are to be a people who recognize all we have been given by God and, therefore, give of ourselves in the service of others.
