Our Manifesto is our core set of values at Fuse Church. Our priorities are "driven" by our mission but "guided" by our values. Our values establish the culture in which our mission to see lives changed and God's kingdom advanced is fulfilled.
We love Jesus AND we love His bride, the church. The local church is the hope of the world — God's vehicle for advancing His kingdom — together, we will give ourselves to something much bigger than ourselves... to the church Jesus is building; the movement He is leading. Are you full of passion to be an active part of building the church Jesus is passionate about?
We are faith-filled, big thinking, bet-the-farm risk takers — We will set impossible goals, take bold steps of radical faith and watch God move in miraculous ways! Are you living a life of audacious, radical faith?
The church does not exist primarily for us. We are the church and we exist for the world. We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers. We will not cater to personal preference in our mission to reach this city. We are more concerned with the people we are trying to reach than the people we are trying to keep and will set our priorities accordingly. Where are you serving?
We go "over and above" to freely give honor & express gratitude to God and to those above us, beside us and under us because of the value, calling and potential God has placed inside of them. Are you giving honoring and expressing gratitude to those above, beside and under you?
Excellence is in the details. We never do anything half-way or half-hearted. God deserves our best in every detail of our lives and we will live to make the ordinary, extra-ordinary in our pursuit to see lives changed and God's kingdom advanced! Do you operate in excellence?
Believers are called to be anchored in a lifestyle of authentic, supernatural, intimate relationship with God and the authority of His Word, the Bible. Is your relationship with God authentic and growing? Is the Bible the final authority over your life and do your priorities fall in line accordingly?
Fuse is built on the mission God gave Pastors Ryan & Kelly. We will aggressively defend our unity and that mission.
It is an honor to give and sacrifice, in a radical and irrational way, to see lives changed and God's kingdom advanced. We will give up things we love for things we love more and lead the way for others to step into a lifestyle of radical generosity and sacrifice, for God's glory!
We believe a persons character is far more important than their gift. When it comes to a person's promotion, position or advancement, we "always" value character over and above gifting. Gifts can be given but fruit (fruit of the Spirit) must be grown.
People are not just numbers...those numbers are people! We believe God's kingdom is to be "ever-expanding" and therefore we will put a disproportionate focus on making it hard to go to hell for those within our reach. Nothing about God's Great Commission is small and every life changed, really matters!
Before we experienced God’s grace, our lives were consumed with ourselves and our desires. Now as devoted followers of Christ, God desires that we are consumed with His purposes and use our time, talents and treasure to generously serve Him and others. We are now stewards of our lives and no longer owners.
We are optimists, not pessimists...solution focused, not problem focused. Our limitations will inspire our greatest creativity and innovation. God is "always" good and has His best in mind for us!
No one is called to "do life" alone. We believe life is supposed to be full of love, laughter, fun and lived out in relational community.
