Our values

  • We believe in learning to love our neighbors, even to love our “enemies”. However, we do not believe real love is weak or limp.
  • We do not believe in waiting passively for elected officials to save us, to rescue us completely from our difficulties, without our own participation. Nor, for that matter, do we believe in enacting the same sort of passivity and sense of entitlement in religious terms. We do not believe in a “marxist government in the sky” that will reward us for saying “lord, lord” a few times. We believe a healthy community is one that is awake and interested in what is going on around it and in it.
  • We value freedom, that people should generally be free to live their lives as they choose, so long as they do not harm others in demonstrable ways. A limited amount of “government”, or public service, is of course important–for instance law enforcement officers who risk their lives to help keep our communities safe.
  • We believe trying to be accurate & honest are pretty good ideas.

    Great value statement!

    There’s a difference between freedom and license. What has passed for freedom in pop culture is little more than immorality. We are currently seeing real restrictions to our liberties while those on the political left promote morally harmful behavior as being “open” and free.
