1. We are faith-filled, big thinking, bet-the-farm risk takers. We’ll never insult God with small thinking and safe living.
2. We are all about the “capital C” Church! The local church is the hope of the world and we know we can accomplish infinitely more together than apart.
3. We give up things we love for things we love even more. It’s an honor to sacrifice for Christ and His church.
4. We wholeheartedly reject the label mega-church. We are a microchurch with a mega-vision.
5. We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ. To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.
6. We will lead the way with irrational generosity. We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.
7. We will laugh hard, loud and often. Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love!
8. We always bring our best. Excellence honors God and inspires people.
9. We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers. The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.
10. We will honor Christ and His Church with integrity. If we live with integrity, nothing else matters. If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters.
We have a mission at ANEW Church and that is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
We accomplish this as a church body by being a unique SPECIES with Core Values.
