CORE VALUES

We recognize that God is big. He is difficult to make fit into finite human minds. For example, how can a being be both perfect justice and perfect mercy? In our minds we understand in part. Elevation believes that we are created in the image of God. As you read our values you may notice that they seem to contradict…In our collective search to know God these are some of the things that we think are important:

High-Speed and Slow Paced

A church that moves efficiently employing technology while embracing a “stop and smell the flowers” attitude

Prayer and Laughter

Paying constant attention to our physical, spiritual and emotional life, realizing that God created humans with a body, soul and mind

Justice and Mercy

Showing mercy to our neighbors while not shying away from correction

Youthful and Maturing

Handling life with wisdom, yet daring to view life through the eyes of a child

Loud and Quiet

We value “knowing the seasons” in our gatherings, mixing the charismatic with the liturgical, speaking and listening to God.

Local and Global

Our goal is only to change the world, but teaching that goal begins in our homes, offices, jobs and church.

Outreach and Community

Elevation is building a community of believers with a sincere desire to touch our community. People matter to God and they matter to us. They are why we are here.
