GraceLife Baptist Church | Our Core Values
Core Values help determine what we do & how we do it; they serve as guardrails to keep us moving towards our vision & protect us from drifting off towards other “things.”
We value Jesus above all else – We are His church.
We will make Jesus and His Gospel central to all of life and ministry, ever grateful for His gracious work in our lives. (Colossians 1:15-18; 1 Corinthians 15:10)
We value life change – Your past is not your future.
We affirm that the Holy Spirit is the agent of life change and we will teach and minister in such a way that leads to transformational change in the lives of individuals, families, our church, workplaces, community, and the world. (2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 12:1-2)
We value active faith – We are contributors, not consumers.
We will give of our time, talents, and treasures to see the mission of Jesus accomplished, and become more like Christ through spending time in His Word, prayer, and service to others. (Ephesians 2:10; Acts 2:42)
We value authenticity – Real relationships require real people.
We will seek to live in biblical community, by pursuing honesty, transparency, and accountability in ministry and relationships. (Romans 12:9-21; Ephesians 4:2)
We value global impact – We live every day on mission.
We embrace the responsibility to show and share Jesus to our neighbors and to the nations. (2 Corinthians 5:20; Acts 1:8)
We value excellence – Excellence honors God and inspires people.
We will give God our best by living with a sense of urgency, continually evaluating, being creative in our methods and ministries, and seeing obstacles as opportunities. (Colossians 3:23-24; 1 Corinthians 10:31)
