Moran Park strives to hold true to these values through the strength and power of the Holy Spirit.
- Loving God, loving others, and making disciples. The heart of Moran Park isn't to increase the number of people in our
seats each week, but to form a community that loves to worship God
through praise, serving, and going out into the world to share the
- Praying, listening, and obeying.
Moran Park invests a lot of time into praying and listening to God and
how He is speaking. Decisions are always made in prayer and our vision
is guided by what we are hearing from God. When we believe we hear
something from God, we test it by asking if it points us toward Jesus,
edifies or encourages us, is affirmed by Scripture, and transforms us
into Christ-likeness. After we verify that what we've heard is from God,
we believe in RICO - radical, immediate, costly obedience. Sometimes
God calls us to something that we are super excited to obey and other
times God calls us to something that may be very difficult to obey.
Either way, God's desire for us is to obey Him immediately, no matter
the cost. Moran Park is called to being bent toward action.
- Participation in God's work through equipping the saints -- that's you! All are called to engage in the responsibility that comes with the authority and power that Jesus, our King, has given us as children of God. Each of us has a calling on our lives, not just the pastoral staff and ministry leaders. We all can learn to live and lead like Jesus did and continues to do.
- Engaging in a broken, authentic, and honest community.
No need to put on a fake smile here, we all have past and present
brokenness in our lives. However, we serve the One who can heal us from
those things and use us to bring His everlasting and perfect Kingdom
here to earth. We invite you into our space no matter where or what you
may be physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
- Joy. The joy of the LORD is our strength. We are called to be joyful in all we do and to bring joy to others.
- Loving God, loving others, and making disciples. The heart of Moran Park isn't to increase the number of people in our seats each week, but to form a community that loves to worship God through praise, serving, and going out into the world to share the Gospel.
Here at Moran Park, we aim to love God, love others, and make disciples.
- Love God: Loving God isn't just acquiring knowledge from Scripture, but putting the knowledge into practice as well. Loving God requires prayer, listening, and obedience.
- Love Others: Loving others means loving holistically. This means living a life of sacrifice instead of only loving when it is convenient. Laying our lives down for one another is modeled by Jesus in his life, death and resurrection.
- Make Disciples: Making disciples consists of going out into our communities, sharing the Gospel, and teaching others about the love of God and His call on our lives. Making disciples requires commitment to serving God instead of ourselves and it is impossible without loving God and loving others first.
Moran Park believes in teaching people through more than just church on Sundays and mid-week gatherings, but through mentoring, discipleship training, and house churches. Getting in a house church isn't the end goal. Instead, Moran Park is aiming to building a community and culture that is called to intentionally live life together, serve and worship God, and make disciples that make disciples.
