Our core values are our beliefs and guiding principles, how we conduct ourselves in everything that we do.
- We value God being the centre of all we do.
Matthew 6:33 – But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Colossians 3:17 – And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
- We value the Word, Worship and Prayer
John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Psalm 150:6 – Let everything that has breath praise the Lord
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
- We value people and families.
Romans 12:10 – Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honour.
Philippians 2:3-4 – Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others
- We value community and fellowship
Matthew 18:20 – For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.
1 Corinthians 12:25-27 – That there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honoured, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
Psalm 133:1-3 – Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.
- We value authenticity
Romans 12:9 – Let love be without hypocrisy.
John 8:36 – Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
Ephesians 4:23-24 – and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
