Our Values

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)

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)

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)

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)

Church Planting
The most effective way to fulfill the Great Commission is to plant churches. Mckinney SDA’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)

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 holistic small groups for building relationships, stimulating spiritual growth, and developing leadership. (Proverbs 27:17, Psalm 133:1)

Spiritual Growth
We believe every member should be a member of at least three core groups: Sabbath school class, Ministry group and Bible study groups. We rely on personal and corporate prayer in the conception, planning, and execution of all ministries and activities. We believe prayer and Bible reading should be a vital part of everyone’s daily life. (Acts 2:42-47), (James 5:16, Zechariah 4:6)
