Core Values

Core values are beliefs we stand by, which shape how we operate as a church.

Servant Leadership

Philippians 2:3 - Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.

  • A heart to lead by example, not just give orders. (Leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less.)

  • If serving is below you, leadership is beyond you.

  • Invest in those who’ll invest in others.

  • Ephesians 4:12 - to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.

  • Equip people for works of service, don’t just be a doer.

Excellence

Colossians 3:23 - Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for man.

  • Excellence is not a skill it’s an attitude, it doesn’t happen by accident.

  • Start on time, end on time, be on time.

  • Quality is better than quantity.

  • Set high standards.

  • Always seek to improve.

Passion

Romans 12:11 - Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

  • Self-motivated people don’t have to be managed.

  • Passion is contagious, it naturally multiplies.

  • Love what you do and those around you.

  • Passionate people want to, they don’t have to.

Unity

John 17:23 – I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.

  • One Team, one vision, one method.

  • Matthew 5:9 - Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

  • Be a peacemaker, not just a peace-keeper.

  • Maintain candor - open and honest communication.

  • Matthew 18:15 - If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.

  • Handle conflict swiftly, directly, gracefully.

  • A house divided can’t stand.

Encouraging

1 Thessalonians 5:11 - Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

  • Spoken Blessings: speak to and call out people's gifting.

  • Compliment more than you correct.

  • SMILE!

Teachable

Proverbs 23:12 - Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge.

  • Be open-minded.

  • Experience teaches only the teachable.

  • If you think you’re right about everything, you are wrong.

  • If you’re learning you’re growing.

Integrity

Proverbs 10:9 - Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.

  • Be honest and have strong moral principles; moral uprightness.

  • Integrity builds trust.

  • Do the right thing every time all the time.

  • Maintain stewardship of time and money.

Skill and Anointing

1 Peter 4:10 - Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

  • We must be willing and able.

  • Developing your skills is important. 

Generosity

12 Corinthians 8:7 - But since you excel in everything-in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you - see that you also excel in this grace of giving.

  • Generosity is having an open heart and open hand

  • Some may have the gift of giving, but everyone has the grace of giving. 

  • Tithing is the baseline standard. Offerings are over and above as God leads. 

  • In addition to money, we can be generous with time, love, kind words, helping others, wisdom, etc.
