Compassion for all people – Mark 6:34; 2 Corinthians 1:3-7;
As Jesus had compassion on the crowds, so we desire to display an accepting posture to all people, realizing we are all broken and in need of healing and love.
Thriving Relationships – Ephesians 4:1-16; 4:29-5:2; Colossians 3:12-17;
Relationships are everything – our relationship with God and other people. We want them to thrive.
Thriving community and campus (Estero and FGCU) – Jeremiah 29:7; 1 Timothy 2:1-3;
We want to be a positive impact on Estero, San Carlos and the campus of FGCU.
Life-long growth – Ephesians 4:1-16; Philippians 3:12-14;
Part of thriving in life is continually growing in character, knowledge and skills.
Love for lost people – Luke 15; Luke 5:27-31;
We are biased toward people and want everyone to know and trust Jesus and live in his community.
Global/Local Kingdom perspective – Matthew 6:33 & 9:35-10:8; Luke 10:1-3; John 20:19-23;
We are both a local movement and part of God’s global mission so we aspire to partner with mission in our place and network with Christians across the world.
