We Value People
People matter to God
We believe people matter to God and therefore they matter to us. God demonstrated the high value He places on people when he gave His very best, his Son, to provide the gift of salvation. Church of the Master’s mission is to get the message of this good news to the world so we can help people establish a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and equip them to become Difference Makers in the world.
(John 3:16, Romans 5:8, Luke 15:7, Luke 15:10)
We Value Practical Application of Scripture
Teaching is for Life-Change
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to our world. Therefore, we must live and practice the life changing principles we discover. God gave us His Word in order to equip us and change us for His glory and benefit.
(Psalm 1, James 1:22-25, Luke 6:46, Psalm 119:11)
We Value Authentic, Loving Community
Life change happens best in community groups
We believe real authenticity is best described as openness with others about our strengths and weaknesses. We will help people find their way from the large group (weekend worship) into relationally-authentic community groups.
(Acts2:44-47, Romans 7, Colossians 4:5)
We Value Cultural and Generational Relevance
Although our methods will change, our Message will not
We believe the Bible is the most exciting book ever written, and we seek to share its’ good news in relevant environments. We will create appropriate environments for our Preschoolers, Grade school children, Middle and High school students as well as adults.
(1 Corinthians 9:22, 2 Corinthians 11:2, 1 Chronicles 12:32)
We Value Service to Others
Every member is a minister
We believe God has equipped every Christ-Follower with gifts and passions so they can become difference makers for Jesus Christ. We will encourage everyone to use and develop their gifts and talents in service to our church, community and world.
(1 Peter 4:10, Romans 12:6-8, 1Cornithians 12:4-7, Ephesians 4:11-13)
We Value Relational Evangelism
Sharing Christ Within Relationships
We believe that just as Christ wants to enter into a loving relationship with us, the best way to share Christ with others is through entering into loving relationships with them. Every follower of Christ has a mission to share Christ’s love and the knowledge of that love with others. In order to do this most effectively, we must love as Christ loves, and that involves getting to know people and forming relationships.
(Matthew 4:19, Mark 2:14-15, Luke 24:13-15, John 1:37-39)
