Our core values.


Transformed people love God and love others. We experience God’s love through our relationships with Christ, and we love others in positive relationships.


Transformed people live in the Holy Spirit. The best way for us to be transformed is to engage in impactful experiences.


Transformed people learn from Jesus. We seek to understand more about Jesus so we can reflect his image authentically.
