IT’S NOT AN OPTION! We exercise forgiveness at all costs by asking for God’s forgiveness, forgiving ourselves and forgiving others. We believe there is no spiritual growth without forgiveness. When we stop forgiving, we stop spiritually growing. We are never more like Jesus than when we are forgiving!
LEADERS GO FIRST! We remain healthy by seeking and connecting with Jesus first, pursuing purity, putting family first, protecting our sabbath, and walking in humility so we can lead others in health. It’s not about us. We are here to make Jesus famous!
Honor reflects Heaven's value. Honor protects freedom, creates safe places and reflects a Kingdom identity. Honor is about self-control not control. We honor one another to glorify God! We honor up. We honor down. We honor all the way around.
We manage Heaven’s resources for the Father’s business. The heart’s cry of a good steward is, “It will never be mine; it will always be Yours!” When given the choice between an ownership or employment mentality, we choose the third option—stewardship.
We build the trust, character and relationships of tomorrow by engaging in the tough conversations today. Proverbs 27:6a “Wounds from a friend can be trusted…”
OUR PASSION is for God’s presence to flow through us. The Holy Spirit is present and moving in and through our lives. The presence of God distinguishes us, comforts us and empowers us (2 Corinthians 3:18) (Exodus 33:15-16)
We don't raise up volunteers. We raise up leaders! Volunteers come to do a job. Leaders carry the heart of the house and walk worthy of the calling they have received. Leaders influence and change the world.
We disciple through real relationships. We create an atmosphere for people to be open and honest by leading in vulnerability and transparency. Pride comes before the fall and humility comes before freedom.
WE HAVE FUN! If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong! We make time to celebrate the little wins that create a big victory.
We believe healthy feedback is a 2 way street. We welcome opportunities to hear what is in your heart, and we commit to clarifying what is in ours.
We represent the Lord by doing the best we can with what we have.
NO STRINGS ATTACHED. We give our time, treasure and talents from a heart of love with pure motives.
We choose to slow down and communicate clearly today, so that we can move forward faster tomorrow.
We trade empowerment for teachability and humility. We believe that humility is a mark of maturity.
Jesus discipled a few to change the world. He poured His life into 12 men that would go on to change the world. Jesus is The Disciple-Maker therefore disciple-making is our way of life.
Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)
18. Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given ALL AUTHORITY in heaven and on earth.
19. Therefore, GO and MAKE DISCIPLES of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
20. TEACH these new disciples to OBEY all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
