Core Values

Learn more about the values and the DNA of Cherry Hills Community Church.

Love God, Love People


We believe that all people were made in the image of God and as such we love and value everyone. We commit to demonstrate God’s love to others through our actions and compassion to meet the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of our community. This is driven by our love for God that manifests itself through obedience to His Word and a sacrifice of worship throughout our lives.

(Matthew 22:36-40 , 1 Corinthians 13:2, 1 John 4:12, 1 Peter 4:8, John 15:12, 1 Corinthians 13:13, Romans 12:10)

Rooted in the Bible


We love the Word of God and desire to be in it daily, to understand it contextually, to hear from God through His Spirit and apply it to our lives in order to be all that God intends us to be. *Cherry Hills believes EPC Essentials of Our Faith and Westminster Confession of Faith as modified by the EPC best represent what is “Essential” to the Faith. We hold dear the EPC belief that we are Unity in the Essentials, Liberty in the Non-Essentials and Charity in all things.

(2 Timothy 3:16, Psalm 19:7-11, 2 John 1:9-11, John 1:1, Hebrews 4:12, Jeremiah 15:16)

Wholly Reliant on God


We desire that everything we do at Cherry Hills be preceded and surrounded by prayer. Despite being flawed in so many ways, we seek to be humble people, so that He, not us, receives the glory for every good thing at Cherry Hills.

(Philippians 4:6-7, Psalm 55:22, Joshua 6, 1 Peter 5:7)

Building Community


We are a community of believers that thrives on being together, celebrating the sacraments and encouraging each other towards spiritual growth. We seek to make a big church small, proving a variety of ways to connect and deepen relationships and faith. This extends beyond our walls to serving and engaging our local community in ways that demonstrate God’s love.

(1 Thessalonians 2:8; Matthew 18:20, Acts 2:42-47, Psalm 55: 13-14, 1 John 1:17, Proverbs 27:17, Hebrews 10: 24-25)

Invitational


We are a church that finds joy in inviting everyone to experience church in all its formats. This invitation extends beyond a church building, inviting others into our homes and our lives in order that they might come to know Jesus as their Savior.

(John 1:39-41, 1 Thessalonians 2:8, Matthew 4:18-20, Romans 10:14, Matthew 9:9-12)

Inter-Generational


We believe we are the body of Christ and each of us regardless of age has a part to play. Our desire is to win and pastor all generations. We belong to Christ and as such we all belong to His family.

(Psalm 145:4-7, Ephesians 5:18-21, Colossians 3:16, Mark 10:14, 1 Timothy 5:1-2, 1 Peter 5:5, Acts 2:17/ Joel 2:28, 1 Peter 5:3, 2 Timothy 1:5, 1 Timothy 4:12, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27)

Excellence for the Glory of God


God’s creativity and perfection surround us in creation. He has graciously given us gifts, talents, and resources that we desire to steward and perfect. Through our ministry programming and campus facilities, we strive for excellence for the glory of God.

(1 Corinthians 10:31, Colossians 3:23, Daniel 1:20, Daniel 6:3, Philippians 4:8, 1 Corinthians 9:24-25, Matthew 5:14-16, Mark 7:36-37)
