Plum Creek's Mission, Vision, Values, and Beliefs

  • At Plum Creek we are Leading People to a Life-Changing Relationship with Jesus Christ.  Everyone at Plum Creek is on a journey to be a better follower of Jesus.  What does that mean?  It means we are learning to give God more glory every day.  It means we are for our neighbors and want them to join the journey, too.  It means we are never finished becoming more like Jesus.

  • Our vision consists of three expressions that show how we pursue our mission as a church.

    Next Steps - We will guide everyone we meet to identify and take their next step closer to Christ.

    Stronger Families - We will build stronger families by centering homes on Christ, with a focus on marriages and the next generation.

    Transforming Communities - We will build stronger communities by equipping each other to serve our community and the world with Christ-like compassion.

  • Worship: In everything we do, we want to give God glory, not ourselves, and we will encourage everyone to participate in giving Him our best.

    Bible: We believe that Scripture is the true Word of God, and the guideline for everything we do.

    Prayer: We pray because we trust in God and depend on Him, and because prayer makes a difference.

    Family: Because we believe the home should be the primary place for spiritual growth, we will invest in marriages and families.

    Community: We value Christ-like relationships where truth and love are shared authentically.

    Discipleship: Every believer should be in a continual process of growing to be more and more like Christ.

    Ministry: We will help every Christian serve God and others in the unique way He designed them to serve.

    Outward Focus: We will continuously resist the urge to focus on ourselves by meeting needs in our community and around the world.

    Generosity: We will be sacrificially generous, because we serve a generous God.

    Mission: Because we believe every soul matters, we are preoccupied with reaching lost people.

  • The Bible

    The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the authority for life.
    (Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

    Jesus Christ

    Jesus is God's Son and is the Savior of the World and forgiveness of sin and the gift of eternal life is found only in Him. (John 3:16)


    Each person has been created in the image of God, yet has fallen short of His standard because of sin. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23)


    We believe the Bible teaches that salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7) Those who accept Christ as Lord should repent of their sin, confess their need for Christ, and be immersed in baptism. (Acts 2:38)


    Communion is observed each week, and is a visual reminder of Christ's death on the cross for our sins. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)


    Christ will return one day to take his followers to Heaven. (John 14:2-3)
