Our Core Values

image4

  

We Value Inclusion.

“We are no longer Jews or Greeks or slaves or free or even merely men or women, but we are all the same 

– we are Christians; we are one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

We affirm our commitment to being a church that embraces people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, 

age, abilities, ethnicities and social economic statuses. We seek to welcome all.


We Value Relevant Worship

“Suppose some strangers are in your worship service, when you are praising God with your spirit. If they don't 

understand you, how will they know to say, ‘Amen’? You may be worshiping God in a wonderful way, but no one 

else will be helped” 1 Corinthians 14:16-17

We value preaching that relates to everyday life and we seek to be relevant to people of different generations 

and backgrounds so that all can experience God in ways that best connect them to God.


We Value being Generous

“But because God was so gracious, so very generous, here I am. And I'm not about to let God’s grace go to waste. “ 1 Corinthians 15:10 

Because God is so gracious to us we value being generous in grace, in giving our resources, our service to others,

and our love.


We Value Spiritual Growth

“And then take on an entirely new way of life – a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working 

itself into your conduct as God accurately reproduces God’s character in you.” Ephesians 4:22

We understand that no one is perfect but, that, with God’s help, we can learn new ways of living and being that make us more and more like Christ. We seek to build the foundation for people to grow in Christ-like character.


We Value Hospitality

“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13:2

We are committed to maintaining an environment that presents Christ to each person who walks through our doors. We strive to ensure that every person who comes to Canyon Lake knows that they are valued and belong within our community.


We Value Outreach

“And I pray that as you share your faith with others it will grip their lives too, as they see the wealth of good things 

in you that come from Christ Jesus. “ Philemon 1:6 

We are convinced that the church does not simply exist for itself but also for those beyond our walls We seek to 

intentionally share our faith with those not connected to a church so that they may know of God’s great love for them.
