Our church has been going through a “chrysalis” process of replanting and revitalization. As part of this process, we just finished an intensive 12-week study of biblical principles concerning the church: what the church is, what the church is to do, and how we’re to do it. I’ve condensed these principles into four core commitments. I’ll post an updated version of each commitment with fuller descriptions, but here are the basic principles to which we commit ourselves as a church:
- We will remain graciously and uncompromisingly evangelical.
- We will intentionally emphasize, as a key priority, New Testament principles of what we are as the church, what we do as the church, and how.
- We will have a plurality of pastoral leaders and teachers.
- We will remain focused on our mission of helping people become and continually grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
