HOPE GROWS HERE: God-Honoring Excellence
We are encourage by the teaching Jesus and the Apostles to work diligently and with excellence in everything we do.  Not just for good people, important people or persons of power, but also for those who may be harsh and unkind--for those who do not appreciate us.  The reason is that it is really not people that we are working for, but Christ Himself.  There could be not greater incentive than this to offer our very best.
 
Colossians 3:1-17, 23-24

    HOPE GROWS HERE: Fearless Obedience
    When the Word of God speaks.  We need to listen.   In it He has revealed the pathway to eternal life.  We are not to argue, rationalize, excuse or compromise.  We are to fearlessly obey, even in the face of hostility and suffering.

    HOPE GROWS HERE: It Is Written
    If we are to build bridges of grace that bear the weight of truth, those bridges must be built upon proper and substantial piers (core values).  The first, and most central, of these values is Biblical Authority.  It is only when the Word of God is held in the highest of esteem and its principles faithfully applied in our lives, that we can makes sense of this broken world and bring real hope to its hurting people.

    HOPE GROWS HERE: Series Intro
    People cannot live without hope.  There is no shortage of despair and hopelessness in our world.  The Church is to be a beacon of hope in a despairing world.  The church needs to be a place where hope grows in the hearts and lives of people.
