Our Values


The following ten statements are the core values for City On A Hill.  These values inform us of our identity, remind us of our mission, and inspire us in our vision.

[01] Work like it depends on us, PRAY like it depends on God.

We will rely on God's Spirit to be the driving force in all that we do.

[02] RELATIONSHIPS aren't the most important thing, they're the only thing.

We will refuse to do life alone.  We need one another.

[03] The FUTURE is now.

We will empower the next generation. Children and students will be celebrated.

[04] Love tells the TRUTH.

We will not be afraid to say hard things. That's what a true friend does.

[05] EXCELLENCE glorifies God and inspires people.

We will follow the example of Jesus, giving our very best.

[06] SIMPLICITY means less is more.

We will be intentional in doing fewer things at a higher level.

[07] You don't have to believe to BELONG.

We will love people as they are (the same way God loved us).

[08] A missional church is a MESSY church.

We will be a hospital for the hurting, not a shrine for the saints.

[09] CHANGE is our tradition.

We will be relevant, engaging our world as it is. Methods always change, the message never will.

[10] Success is measured in STORIES.

We will celebrate the "one". Every face has a name, every name has a story, and every story matters to God.
