Core Values

We seek to honor Christ and uphold his Church by striving to uphold the following core values:

  1. buildingverticalScripture alone has ultimate authority and sufficiency; therefore, our doctrine comes from Scripture.
  2. We must declare God's glory both near and far. In doing this, we must ensure that the gospel we proclaim is the biblical gospel.
  3. The church is always being reformed according to the Word of God. Hence, we uphold the importance of the expositional preaching and teaching of God's Word.
  4. Worship of God should be both thoroughly biblical as well as deeply joyful; it must be God-centered, not man-centered.
  5. We long to be a prayerful church, deeply aware of God’s call upon his people to pray and his promise to answer prayer offered in faith and in accord with his will.
  6. We uphold a regenerate church membership. Covenantal care and church discipline are parts of this membership.
  7. We seek, by God’s grace, to equip and educate God's people for the work of service.
  8. We are committed to strengthen marriages and the family. We uphold covenant marriage and family as the first God-ordained unit of nurture and instruction in godliness. In this, we seek also to uphold the sanctity of life in our culture of death. Marriage is the monogamous and life-long relationship between one man and one woman.
  9. We are committed to a godly and biblical leadership, composed of elders and deacons, with lay ministry teams carrying out many aspects of the work of ministry.
  10. We are a church that gathers in the Clifton community. Therefore, we seek to know and care for the needs of our neighbors in this particular community.
  11. We are committed to provide a place of worship and spiritual instruction that is safe, attractive, and honoring to God as a light to the community.
  12. We seek, by God’s grace, to be a sending church. We desire to be sacrificial in the giving of our time, resources, and people for the good of the church of Jesus Christ around the world, and not simply for our own congregation.
