Marina’s ministry centers around four important values that are in the fabric of everything we do as a congregation and in community outreach.  These four values are how disciples are made and how they move in their spiritual growth in Christ Jesus our Lord & Savior.
Love God – All that we do starts at the foundation of our love for our creator.  In order for us to become disciples, we first have to give our lives to God, His word & His ways. (Deuteronomy 6:5 & Matthew 22:37)
 
Love People – Once we enter into the Body of Christ, through baptism, we enter into the family of God.  We draw closer to one another as brothers & sisters in Christ.  This creates a community of believers who demonstrate their love for God, love for each other & love for their fellow man. (1 John 4:7-11)
 
Serve God – We believe that their is no such thing as a spectator Christian.  Every child of God is called to his or her ministry within the body of Christ.  Each Christian has their own god-given talent and no talent is too small in the eyes of God. (1 Corinthians 12:12-31)
 
Serve the World – We have been deeply impacted by the grace of God that has been extended to us through faith in baptism.  It is our mission to tell the world about this wonderful gift of a savior who loved and died for all of humanity that we may live eternally with our Creator. (John 3:16-17)
