Core Values

Tall Timber is:

  • A place where JESUS invites each of us to tell our story, to listen to the stories of others, and to be transformed by His great story.
  • A place where the HOLY SPIRIT inspires all to grow relationally, intellectually, physically, and spiritually, in love and laughter, from generation to generation.
  • A place where our commitment to a culture of CHRISTIAN hospitality makes Christ known in all we say, do, and create for our guests.

Statement of Belief

We believe in the sovereignty of God, centrality of Christ, the transforming presence of the Holy Spirit, justification by grace through faith, the authority of scripture, and the priesthood of all believers.

We understand this to mean:

God is the supreme authority throughout the universe and in our lives.

Our knowledge of God and God's purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Our salvation is God's generous gift to us and not the result of our own accomplishments.

We are all ministers of the gospel, and it is everyone's call - clergy and lay people alike - to share this Good News with the whole world.
