There are core values that drive TC! The first core values are fueled by these two (2) quotes. These quotes drive our philosophy, our strategies, and our values.
"Now glory be to God! By his might power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope."
- A church planter (Ephesians 3:20)
"God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible, what a pity we only attempt the things we can do on our own."
- A.W. Tozer
ThornCreek exists to transform self-sufficient people into God-driven people! ThornCreek desires to come alongside people and equip them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ! This is what makes our heart beat fast!
ThornCreek values unconditional love. None of us have it all together. ThornCreek is a place for people to come and experience an authentic, caring and friendly environment. Jesus made it clear that His followers would be known by their love for others. At ThornCreek, people are accepted and inspired to do life with God.
ThornCreek values authentic relationships. There are people who live around us that have never experienced the transforming grace of God. God works through relationships to communicate His love, purpose, and hope. When people share their lives with each other in a vulnerable way, real growth happens. Accountability is a healthy characteristic of a growing Christian.
ThornCreek values personal transformation. God works from the inside-out. Any time people truly encounter God's presence in their lives, they can't help but to be changed. It starts with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Transformation happens when people are obedient and faithful to God at every moment. God uses relationships, the church, and the Bible to mold and shape people. ThornCreek believes both young and old should never stop growing spiritually. When transformation happens, people become more like the character of Jesus Christ.
