Core Values

  • We declare our allegiance to Jesus the Christ, and honor the Bible as the basis for seeking and living the truth
  • We understand the need for faithful living, and the need to share faith with others in the common journey of life
  • We view leadership, creativity, innovation and courage as necessary components in the pursuit of excellence in our service to guests and colleagues
  • We recognize the crucial juxtaposition of financial stewardship and fiscal responsibility
  • We hold a reverence for the land and its resources as gifts from the Creator and will strive to be effective and wise stewards.
  • We acknowledge the primacy of prayer, and our need to seek God before, during, and after the making of decisions
  • We honor those who have committed to a lifetime of Christian service, whether in the ordained or general ministry
  • We seek to empower all believers in discovering the joy of service, especially volunteer service, to the living Lord and His people
  • We cherish our heritage in the United Methodist Church and honor its polity


  • We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct; the Triune God–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection, and His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness and glory; the Person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration, and sanctification, who indwells every believer, equipping them with gifts for service and witness; the necessity of the new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ; and the church as the one universal body of Christ who is the Head, called to be God’s redeemed people.
