Core Values

God - We believe in one true God who created all things and sustains all things. We believe God has revealed himself as a Divine Trinity throughout Scripture: God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We believe that God desires intimate relationship with us. By faith we can cultivate personal relationship with God through worship, prayer and scripture.  To know and spread God's love is the highest aim of humanity. 

People – We believe in family and we value people because we are all made in the image of God. Through faith in Jesus Christ we have been cleansed from sin and brought near to God and called sons and daughters of God. Big House is committed to growing authentic community through the love of Jesus Christ and encouraging the unique gifts and calling of each individual.

Worship – We value worship in all its creative forms for its ability to unveil the glory and goodness of God. God is spirit and those who worship do so in spirit and in the truth that Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. Artistry and Creativity play an essential role in shaping the shared values, culture and course of society.  Big House is a seedbed for artists and creative expression.

Spiritual Formation – We value the partnership between followers of Jesus and the Holy Spirit through the use of spiritual gifts. Supernatural encounters with the presence of God are crucial catalysts for personal and cultural transformation. We believe God's power flows through his people by faith and we are empowered to build the Kingdom of God on the earth as it is in heaven.
