Core Values of SSCC:
In the process of making Christ followers who live to make a difference…
we are committed to and guided by the following values:
We are a WELCOMING FAMILY of faith committed to Christ and one another.
Our family values love and laughter, informality and spontaneity, grace and hospitality, and commitment and loyalty as we follow Christ together.
We will HONOR GOD’S WORD above the traditions and opinions of men.
The Bible is our ultimate authority and guide for life and faith.
We will seek to teach it and live it so as to inspire God’s people with a love for God’s Word.
We seek to be AUTHENTIC AND REAL in our pursuit of Jesus.
People need a life changing relationship with Jesus, not mere religious tradition.
Rules and rituals cannot change a person, but Christ changes us from the inside out!
We believe Christ followers need CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY to fully grow.
The optimal place for life change is in the context of a small group that seeks to Reach Up, Reach In, and Reach Out together.
We will take risks & make sacrifices to REACH PEOPLE who don’t know Christ.
The unchurched and unsaved matter to God, therefore they should matter to us.
The bottom line is changed lives.
We are SPIRITUAL CONTRIBUTORS, not just spiritual consumers.
Christ followers live with purpose, making a difference in our church, community and world.
Our lives are to be marked by service, sacrifice, giving, humility, and love.
We believe the greatest win is to multiply ourselves & RAISE UP DISCIPLES.
We will reproduce and replace ourselves by apprenticing and discipling others in order to make mature Christ followers and leaders who live to make a difference.
Our church family is only as strong as our individual FAMILIES at home.
Healthy families are a priority for our elders, staff, and entire church body.
We should love and care the most for those who are called to walk with us for a lifetime!
We want to stay completely and utterly DEPENDENT UPON GOD!
God’s grace and power will accomplish far more than the best of our human efforts.
More than methods, God will use men and women who are filled with the Holy Spirit!
