Jesus as the Model
because the way of Jesus is as important as the words and works of Jesus
Modeled after Christ we commit to live a life of love in three directions:
The Three Loves: UP, IN, OUT
To love God (UP) with generous devotion by building our lives on personal worship and the study of God’s word, knowing our devotion is a response to God’s unfailing love for us.
To love one another (IN) and to live in submission, sacrifice, and fidelity toward one another, to celebrate the abundant life of Christ together.
To love the world (OUT) by sharing Jesus generously and always, in both word and deed.

We commit to live the 3 loves in four areas:
Missional Communities: To serve and disciple one another in spiritual extended families we call missional communities. We are people identified as a family of servant missionaries.
Everyday Rhythms: To grow in personal holiness and embrace a holistic biblical worldview that we apply to our entire life: work, play, sexuality, resources, relationships, family, things seen and unseen — believing Jesus is Lord over all of life.
Giving: To give generously by worshipping God with personal resources. We agree that giving a percentage of our annual income has served as a healthy measure of generosity throughout biblical history, but it also means the giving of time and other resources as needed.
Glocal (Local & Global) Witness: To live a gospeling lifestyle. We commit to share that Jesus is Lord and his kingdom is here in both words and deeds—in our neighborhoods, city, state, nation, and to the ends of the earth.
