Our core values are forged from the teaching of Jesus Christ…to ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Mark 12:31) These core values guide our behaviors, judgments and how we accomplish our mission:
We assure and maintain transparency in our relationships with each other and with our various constituencies. Our actions and decisions should be able to withstand public scrutiny without dishonoring the God we serve.
We acknowledge that none of us is perfect. We are sinful, fallen people living in a fallen world. We are no better than another. We are just imperfect Christians trying to make a difference for God, for His kingdom and for His glory.
We affirm that every person has been made in God’s image and is a valuable child of God. We will treat others with mutual respect, even in the face of disagreements and interpersonal conflicts.
We will live and work with a generous spirit towards others.
We will extend compassion and grace to others, taking people where they are without judgment or condemnation, showing them the love of Jesus Christ.
