In concert with our Mission, these values serve as the foundation to guide our actions and decisions for everything we do as a ministry, with Core Value #1 being the basis for all succeeding Core Values listed:
CORE VALUE #1: ABSOLUTE TRUTH
We are committed first and foremost to the absolute authority of God’s Word as the source of all such truth.
CORE VALUE #2: PRAYER
We value prayer as the birthplace of ministry (Acts 1:14) and the means with which God, in conjunction with His Word, steers all of our endeavors.
CORE VALUE #3: EVANGELISM
Our mission is to lead current and future generations into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord because the ultimate purpose and meaning of life is to know, glorify, and enjoy God in this life and for all eternity.
CORE VALUE #4: AUTHENTICITY, HUMILITY, and GRACE
We will not pretend to be what we are not, will always speak and act out of what we know to be true, will admit what we do not know, and will acknowledge the work of God’s hand by grace in all we do. Grace means we engage with all people as Christ would, fulfilling the “law of love.”
CORE VALUE #5: STEWARDSHIP
We are committed to efficiency and integrity in the use of all resources God places at our disposal to carry out His mandate and purpose for this ministry. Success is not measured by how much we gain, or how big we get, but how diligently we use what we have been given according to His purposes.
CORE VALUE #6: CREATIVITY
As creatures made in God’s image, we will not allow ourselves to be stuck in a rut, become self-contented, or settle for less than our best, but will seek continually to utilize all the creative skills God has measured to us in this cause for His glory.
CORE VALUE #7: MARRIAGE and FAMILY
We believe God ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in life-long covenant and sexual intimacy, which belongs only within the marital relationship of a man and a woman. This was the design established by God at creation.
