A local church is grounded by common beliefs. We have five core values that hold our ministry accountable

Core Values - Why are we doing it?

We send transformed people to influence their world for Christ by meeting with God, connecting with others, and living with purpose. But why? What are the shared convictions guiding our actions and revealing our strengths? Our values define these convictions. As we took a long, serious look at our church family, we identified the following values as central to who we are and why we do what we do.

  • Every Disciple Growing
  • Every Person On-Mission
  • Every Relationship Meaningful
  • Every Generation Together
  • Every Pursuit with Excellence
  • Watch: We Value

    Throughout the last two decades, our church culture has shifted as we’ve navigated new eras of emphasis and ministry here at Shades. To launch this new chapter, we knew our previous core values didn’t line up with where we found ourselves at the start of 2017.
