Preston Ridge can be defined by our five core values. These guide us as we make plans for ministry and remind us of what really matters as a church community.
1. Biblical Foundation
Everything we do, say, teach and preach is based on the Bible and we look to it as the final authority in matters of life and doctrine. We believe the Bible is God’s perfect Word and through it He guides us as we navigate this life in faith.
2. Authentic Church Family
Let’s be real for a second. Life is hard and Christians aren’t immune to the challenges and temptations that are common to man. We strive to be a church family that leaves pretense at the door. We can’t build each other up if we pretend to be invincible.
3. Empowering Spiritual Growth
We believe God’s plan for us is to grow in spiritual maturity and we expect those in our church family to be actively pursuing that end. Preston Ridge empowers this endeavor by providing resources, Bible studies, mentoring opportunities, encouragement and more to help you get from where you are today in faith to where God wants you to be.
4. Intentional Hospitality
We know finding a church home can be tough and especially if you don’t yet know anyone at the church you’re visiting. Our goal is to make it easy to be at Preston Ridge. God values you greatly and we want to reflect that in the way we engage you on campus the opportunities we provide so that you can join in the life of our church community. It doesn’t just happen, and we want to do it well.
5. Life on Mission
The Bible says that Christians are to be God’s representatives in the world, and we seek to embrace that charge wholeheartedly. This task is just as important and urgent in our day to day lives as it is when going overseas to share our faith. As long as we’re breathing, we’re on a mission of hope and reconciliation and we hope to reflect that at Preston Ridge.
