Our core values

The core values of any organization are the guiding principles that dictate behavior and action.  

At 902 Church, our core values help us to know what is right from wrong.  They also help our church determine if we are on the right path and fulfilling our mission to lead people to Jesus.

For us, they create an unwavering and unchanging guide to who we are called to be & represent.

The following statements are not only the makers of WHO WE ARE, but how we want to be KNOWN by others in our city.


We are faith-filled, big thinking, step-out-of-the-boat risk takers. 

We’ll never insult our big God with small thinking. 


We are all about the “capital C” Church! 

The local church is the hope of the world and we know we can accomplish infinitely more together than apart. 


We will lead the way in generosity.

We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive. 


We will laugh hard, loud, and often.

Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love! 


We always bring our best.

Excellence honors God and inspires people. 


We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers.

The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world. 


We are NOT the perfect church.

We will make mistakes but we will choose to grow from them. 


We will be known for what we are for.

We will speak vision and life over our people. We will lift up the salvation of Jesus rather than using our platform to condemn. 


We will honor Jesus and His church with integrity.

If we live with integrity, nothing else matters. If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters. 


We will do our part to lead others to an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. 

It’s not about religion – it’s about a relationship with the living God.
