Mission, Values, and Beliefs

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer


Arborway is inviting people to walk with Jesus together.



It is the Good News that gives us life, but also the only power that can renew our minds, recalibrate the desires of our hearts, and produce in us the Christ-like character that results in sacrificial love and good works. The Gospel transforms us as individuals, unites us in fellowship, and drives us on mission.

Selfless Mission

The mission of God was never reserved for a select few. Every member of the body of Christ is a missionary with a vital role to play. We are given different abilities and personalities that complement one another as we share in God’s mission. We aren’t a cul-de-sac where the gospel stops, but a super highway that brings it to our neighborhood, city, state, nation, and world.

Uncommon Hospitality

Jesus, God in flesh, had every right to subjugate humanity, but that is not the picture we get. Jesus humbled himself became a servant and welcomed all who would follow him. Hospitality was also a defining mark of the early church. We are a church where we welcome and serve each other like Christ has welcomed and served us.

Diverse Community

There are many mono-cultural churches around the country, but we want a community that better reflects God’s diverse kingdom. At the end of the Bible we see a church worshiping Jesus from every tribe, tongue, and nation. Our prayer is that the good news of the gospel will break through cultural barriers of race, ethnicity, age, gender, and ability to unite us around the cross.



There is one living and true God, infinite in holiness and perfections. God is triune and has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, distinct persons, without division of nature, essence, or being.

the Bible

The Bible is inerrant, a completely true and trustworthy revelation of God, serving as the supreme standard for our life.


Men and Women were created by God in His image. Through sin, humans have fallen and require God's grace to fulfill His creative purpose. The sacredness of humans is evident in every person's possession of full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.


Salvation is redemptive act of God of the whole person, through Christ's work on the cross. It comes by the grace of God through faith in Christ alone.

The Church

A church is a local gathering of Christians who work together with God in his pursuit to reconcile people to himself.
