Our values define who we are. They are the non-negotiables we hold dear and provide a framework upon which to build our lives and community.
No one was meant to live in isolation nor be satisfied with dysfunctional relationships. God has a blueprint for each individual life that includes rich relationships beneficial to our growth and development.
No one can possess the purposes of God alone. Partnership is a key pillar inside community and expresses itself through mutual trust, buy-in, teamwork, and cooperation.
Reformation is the necessary process that brings our personal lives and the corporate life of the Church into correct order and function. We as followers of Christ embrace the deep work of the Holy Spirit in our lives to deliver us past old patterns of thought and action and to bring us into more accurate patterns.
All we do is entirely based upon what God wants and what He decides as being “well done.” Pleasing Him is most important. Therefore, discovering His will and walking in obedience is celebrated and honored.
Obeying God is not optional. Our state of reflexive obedience gives us the power to proclaim and the power to build.
Jesus was apostolic and prophetic and these dimensions of his anointing have been fully restored to the Church today. The apostolic gives us the power to see and build correct structures for every aspect of our lives. The prophetic empowers us to hear and obey the voice of God with clarity and precision. Together, the apostolic and prophetic dimensions give the Church a pioneering spirit to press forward towards full maturity in Christ.
Jesus came to bring the Church into a more abundant life. True discipleship requires a mentality that not only accepts change, but embraces it as one journeys with God. We are committed to moving with God on a personal level as well as a global level.
We value the pursuit of a sincere heart before God and man which validates our proclamation and our lifestyle. Integrity therefore brings forth precision, accuracy, truthfulness, and uprightness.
Christ gave Himself completely for the benefit and advancement of others. Likewise, Paul laid down his life before Timothy as mentor. We can see that it is through the conduit of a deep, trusted relationship that God best imparts the grace and values of one’s life to another.
