Our Core Values

Our Core Values

Love
We are committed to loving God with our whole heart and loving our neighbors as ourselves. We understand that we love because God first loved us and that we can’t say we love God if we do not love one another. Our love must be intentional, sacrificial and practical.

Truth
We are committed to obeying and applying God’s inerrant Word, the Bible, which equips us for all of life and ministry, and to the historic Reformed Faith expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms.

Unity
We are committed to maintaining the unity of the Holy Spirit through the bond of peace by giving and receiving forgiveness and by honoring and respecting one another. The EPC motto expresses the value of unity well, “In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity.”

Grace
We are committed to being a grace-oriented congregation. Since our salvation is by grace alone, we must show grace to both believer and unbeliever alike by humbly accepting others as God has accepted us.

Faith
We are committed to “walk by faith not by sight.” It is through faith in Jesus Christ that we are saved and we follow Jesus Christ by faith. Our Christian lives are faith journeys where we are trusting God to lead and
provide for us.

Hope
We are committed to putting our hope in God not in the things of this world. Our only hope in this life and the next is to trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
