Our values come from the scripture of Luke chapter 15.
JESUS IS OUR POINT.
Jesus is the point we rally around. Jesus is the reason we are here. Jesus OVER everything. It's all about Jesus. He doesn't need us, but he chooses to use us! We GET to do this. (vs. 1)
PEOPLE ARE OUR HEART.
Our heart is that EVERYONE’S invited. We embrace all people at all times with compassion and open arms. We won’t stop until every person knows his or her God-given purpose. (v.1, 20)
FAITH IS OUR REACTION.
We are willing to bet-the-farm, take risks, dream big, and trust God. As soon as we are no longer willing to take a RISK, we become one. We refuse to play it safe when it comes to reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus. (v. 20)
EXCELLENCE IS OUR ORDINARY.
We pay attention to details because excellence honors God. We are always going to do the very best with what we have. We don’t do things halfway and if we are going to do it, it’s done to the best of our ability. (v. 22)
GENEROSITY IS OUR PRIVILEGE.
We will be known by our outrageous generosity. We live to give and love to give. Our time, talents and treasure are always available to him. We give resources sacrificially and generously to “fatten the cow” in preparation for the party. (v. 23)
CELEBRATION IS OUR RESPONSE.
We party on purpose. We celebrate every person and every story because they’re worth it to God. (v.23b-24)
HONOR IS OUR POSTURE.
We are vocal with honor, meaning we are not stingy with our words. We look for opportunities to add value to the Church and other people. We all wear the same jersey and so a win anywhere is a win everywhere. (v. 31-32)
