mission statement & values

living by faith, known by love.

why these values?

We're proud to say that our church's values aren't something we made up, pulled from a conference, seminary, or anything else...Rather, these values have been at the core of who Crow River Church has been from the start. God placed these values in the hearts of people in our church long ago. We are simply coming out and naming what God has done and is continuing to do and building the life of our church around responding to His work.


living like Jesus.

We were made by Him and for Him.  We were made to reflect the heart and love of God to a world in desperate need of it.

Matthew 28:19-20 // Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.


loving like Jesus.

We were made to exist within community, living and loving as one family.

Ephesians 2:19 // Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God's people and also members of his household.


giving like Jesus.

We were made to live outward, focused lives of love.

Acts 20:35 // In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'
