The Heartbeat of TBC
We have many different opportunities and ministries in which you can serve and grow. Regardless of the ministry or activity you take part in at TBC, there are three core values we emphasize: personal surrender, authentic Biblical community, and sacrificial missional living. Though there are three distinct Core Values, they are not to be viewed as separate or independent of one another. The circles serve as a visual reminder of how they are interrelated.

Surrender
The gospel calls us to personally surrender to Jesus Christ as Lord. This is more than a one time event, but includes the continuing process of giving up control of our own lives daily, dying to ourselves and submitting everything to the desires of our Savior (Luke 14:25-33). We demonstrate our love for Jesus by living out this truth (John 14:23-24).
Community
Jesus says that the world will know we are his believers by our love for one another (John 13:34-35). He calls us to share life together in authentic biblical community where we can live out the one-anothers of Scripture before a watching world. One example of how this looks is found in Acts 2:42-47. True biblical community stands in stark contrast to the extreme individualism of our culture.
Mission
Christ has sent us into the world to be about his mission (John 20:21). This mission takes precedence over our own desires and comes with a cost in our personal lives. We want to see Christ’s kingdom advance in all aspects of society and see the community of believers grow both locally and around the world (Matthew 28:19). We want to continually call Christians away from worldly distractions and back to the mission that has been given us (2 Timothy 2:4).
