Our Core Values

It’s been said that if you value everything, you value nothing. After much prayer and consideration, we have six core values that help define who we believe God has called us to be.

1 - God's Word2

We Value God's Word

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” -Psalm 119:105

“Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” -Matthew 4:4

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” -2 Timothy 3:16-17

We Value Worship

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.” -Romans 12:1

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” -James 1:27

“Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” -1 Corinthians 10:31

2 - Worship
3 - Obedience

We Value Obedience

“If you love me, you will obey what I command.” -John 14:15

“To obey is better than sacrifice” -1 Samuel 15:22b

“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” -Luke 9:23

We Value People

“Love your neighbor as yourself” -Matthew 22:39b

“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.’” -Mark 16:15

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." -John 15:12

4 - People
5 - Authenticity

We Value Authenticity

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible.” -Ephesians 5:8-14a

We Value Simplicity

“I do want to point out, friends, that time is of the essence. There is no time to waste, so don’t complicate your lives unnecessarily. Keep it simple—in marriage, grief, joy, whatever. Even in ordinary things—your daily routines of shopping, and so on. Deal as sparingly as possible with the things the world thrusts on you. This world as you see it is on its way out.” -1 Corinthians 7:29-31 MSG

6 - Simplicity
