OUR VALUES

Community and Worldwide Outreach
God loves the people who live in our community, so we think it is important to show His love for them in practical ways.  We will strive to communicate the hope of Jesus in a culturally relevant way so the lost in our community may be won to Christ.  We will also support missionaries around the world with financial resources, leadership, and prayer. (John 3:16, Matthew 28:19-20)

Practical Bible Teaching

We believe that the Bible is God’s handbook for our lives and it is the foundation for our beliefs and behaviors.  It has the power to change lives, so we want to teach it in a way that makes it applicable and understandable for everyone. (2 Timothy 3:16, James 1:23-25)

Family-Life

We seek to create an environment that strengthens families as well as provide ministries that bring healing to broken families.  We emphasize the priority of spending time with our families, investing in our marriages, and parenting our children with great love and care. (1 Timothy 3:4-5)

Children & Youth
We believe that it is better to build strong children, than try to repair them as adults.   We will cut no corners in creating a safe, exciting, and quality children and youth ministry.  We are committed to the spiritual growth and discipleship of every emerging generation. (Matthew 19:14)

Church Planting

The most effective way to fulfill the Great Commission is to plant churches.  Daybreak’s ability to make disciples is multiplied through starting local churches that have a vision to reach the lost in their community.
(Matthew 16:18, 28:19-20)

Pervasive Prayer
Prayer under girds everything we do at Daybreak.   That’s why we rely on personal and corporate prayer in the conception, planning, and execution of all ministries and activities. We believe it should be a vital part of everyone’s daily life. (James 5:16, Zechariah 4:6)

Passionate Worship
We believe God made us to worship Him.  We will keep looking for fresh ways to lift up Jesus and express our love and appreciation for Him.  When we gather, we seek to lead people into a worship encounter with God that produces hope. (Romans 12:1, Psalm 150:6)

Authentic Relationships
We believe that all ministry happens best in the context of loving relationships.  We think it is important to spend time developing genuine relationships with the people in our church and community. Because of this we will always facilitate various small groups for building relationships, stimulating spiritual growth, and developing leadership. (Proverbs 27:17, Psalm 133:1)

Mobilized Believers
At Daybreak, the members are the ministers.  We believe it is our responsibility to fulfill the Great Commission by making disciples of Jesus who in turn go and make other disciples.  It is our goal to train and release every member of Daybreak into the ministry that God has designed them for. (Ephesians 4:11-13, Matthew 28:19-20)

Excellence and Creativity
Excellence honors God and inspires people.  We want our ministries and facilities to be characterized by excellence to the glory of God.  We are more concerned with effectiveness in ministry than with adherence to tradition, so we will look for creative and innovative ways to communicate the good news of Jesus without compromising in doctrine. (Colossians 3:23,24)
