The core values of any organization are those values which form the foundation on which people perform work, live their lives, and conduct themselves. We live in a world full of values, but some of them are so primary, it is vitally important that in light of the dramatic changes in our society we can count on solid Biblical Values to live by.

In an ever-changing world, God is the only constant. Our God-given core values are not descriptions of the work we do or the strategies we employ to accomplish God's mission. These values enrich our daily lives, how we interact with others, and guide us to fulfilling our mission as Jesus followers.

Core values are the basic elements of how we go about our lives.

They are the practices we use, every day, in everything we do.

GO

If we want to be a growing church we must be a going church. Matthew 28:19 tells us to “Go into all the world…”  In order to fulfill the Great Commission we have no choice, we must go to the ends of the earth and tell people the Good News.

TEACH

Matthew 28:20 commands us to “...teach everything that I (Jesus) have commanded…” 

LEAD

In order for the church to flourish we must be leaders not only in our families and our church but in our community as well. 1 John 3:16 illustrates for us what true leadership is, This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.”

MAKE DISCIPLES

Matthew 28:19 commands that the church step out and “make disciples of all nations.” This simply means getting the Word to the church so they can effectively deliver it to the world.

GIVE

We are given three things by God to give back to Him in support of His church...time, talents, and treasure

  • We will give of our time, to build His church.
  • We will share our talents with the church to enrich our community and the Kingdom.
  • We will give our treasures back to God.
SERVE
Leaders should set the example. The Bible says servant hood is something worth aspiring to not something to shun. Jesus served – to the point of death - and He asks us to do the same. They should be the first to serve (Mark 10:44-45). There are many ways and places to serve the Lord – in the community, in Christian organizations, and in the church.  Where you serve isn’t nearly as important as the fact that you are serving somewhere.

BE TOGETHER

These are all great points but if we are not unified in fulfilling these points for the Kingdom then we have no business being a church. Romans 15:19 says, “So let us concentrate on the things which make for harmony, and on the growth of our fellowship together.”
