Worshipful living

A dedication to passionate devotion and intentional obedience. Jesus said that the Father is seeking those who worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. We must practice a life of worship that invites the presence of Jesus into all that we are and do.

John 4:19-26Romans 12:1-5Exodus 15:1-21Hebrews 13:15-16Psalm 100Matthew 25:34-40Matthew 6:19-24, 33

Humble service

A calling to be generous towards God and others. Jesus came to serve, not to be served. He modeled a servant life not only with His disciples, but also with society’s lost, outcast and oppressed. Accordingly, we follow His example.

Mark 10:42-45Philippians 2:1-11John 13:1-17John 12:20-26Isaiah 53: 1-12Matthew 15:34-39Matthew 20:26-28

Authentic relationships

A commitment to respect and integrity. Jesus’ relationships were honest and genuine. We too are compelled to relate honestly with those inside and outside the church. In so doing, we are refreshed and encouraged by our love for one another.

Acts 2:40-471 Thessalonians 2:4-8John 11:17-37Matthew 18:15-201 Corinthians 13Ephesians 4:25-32Hebrews 10:24-25

Loving compassion

A command to look beyond ourselves. Jesus looked at broken humanity through the eyes of love and compassion and came to give His life away. We are called to see the world from God’s perspective and give ourselves away as messengers of salvation, hope and healing.

Luke 10:25-37Matthew 14:13-21Luke 15:11-32John 15:9-17Colossians 3:12-142 Samuel 9:1-13Ruth 2:1-16

Empowering others

A process for equipping and sending Christ’s followers. Jesus intentionally modeled, trained and empowered people to be disciple-makers. He has given us His Holy Spirit and commissioned us go to the ends of the earth. Accordingly, all of us as ordinary people are compelled to be prepared and empowered to accomplish a divine mission.

2 Timothy 2:1-7Acts 6:1-4John 21:15-25Matthew 28:16-20Ephesians 4:11-12Nehemiah 2:17-18Acts 18:24-28

Ministering together

A strategy for accomplishing God’s plan on earth. Jesus commissioned His followers in groups and teams as they went out with His authority to preach, teach, heal and care for those in need. We have been given different gifts and have been designed to work together for the fulfillment of the kingdom of God.
