We want to be the kind of church that exists as a healthy, vibrant family. The New Testament often uses family language to speak of the church such as these words found in Ephesians 2:19: “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God”. As a family, we want to be defined by certain Family Values that direct our individual and collective efforts. These seven Family Values summarize the type of people we strive to be and, in turn, the type of church we want to be known as.
