ETHOS: 

The distinguishing character and guiding beliefs of Together Church.

IT'S NOT ABOUT US; IT'S ABOUT JESUS (WORSHIP)
We love Him and what He loves. We are people that have found hope in Jesus. This isn't a religion to us, but a relationship. Everything we do in our lives and at our church revolves around the fact that when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us, and now we strive to give Him all of us. In everything we do, Jesus is our focus.

PEOPLE MATTER TO GOD - AND US (GOSPEL)
The church is full of real people, so we intentionally take time to notice, know, pray, care, encourage, and build up one another. As long as there are people in our community who are unchurched, we want to find ways to reach them. We want people who do not know Christ to come to church and experience His power and presence. We do not judge people when they come; we allow them time to experience God's life-changing grace.

WE ARE CONTRIBUTORS NOT CONSUMERS (GENEROSITY)
We realize that God has blessed us with time, talent, and treasure so that we may serve the world around us. We have chosen to exceed the expectations of the world by living with radical generosity so others may see our love for God and His love for them. With every action, word we speak, and in every situation, we will leave it better than we found it. We believe that we are most like Christ when we give with a generous spirit. We never look at giving as a task, chore, or religious exercise.

WE SHARE LIFE TOGETHER (COMMUNITY)
No one was meant to go through life alone. We need each other. We understand we are all on our own journey with God and that our faith is supposed to be personal, but it was never meant to be private. We believe that healthy, life-giving relationships are where real life-change happens and where our faith is worked out. We share our lives with each other through small group communities because we all need a group of friends who can push us, comfort us, and encourage us. At Together Church, we value deep, authentic relationships and will be a people who fight for unity, are insanely loyal, give each other the benefit of the doubt, and love each other deeply.
