Our understanding of God's great, unconditional love for us is the basis for all our relationships. When we realize how much we are loved, how much God values us, we are able to understand our worth. We can then appreciate the worth of others as we realize that Jesus died for all of us.
Our Christian church believes prayer is our communication with God and critical in the growth of our relationship with Him. In our times of daily prayer, we learn to speak and listen to the Holy Spirit.
Our Christian church believes that we demonstrate our love for God through obedience to Him and His Word.
Pride and arrogance are antithesis to God's love. We must remain humble and not allow pride to dominate our relationships, our actions or our attitudes. Humility is not a weakness; it is a strength demonstrated through love, kindness, teachability and a genuine concern for others.
Our willingness to learn about God and continue to grow in Him keeps us humble and allows Him to use us as He desires. Teachability is not only about being taught, it includes effectively teaching and mentoring others.
Unity is a vital core value of our Christian church. It fosters health and edification versus division and the tearing down of each other. The strength of our cause for His Kingdom is greatly improved when we come together in one accord. We are all part of His Body and when we are in unity, we are more effective in completing the mission God has called us to, demonstrate an improved impact in the lives of others around us and experience greater individual enjoyment while minimizing issues that can be emotionally and resource draining. Although we may not agree on everything, it is important that we do agree on the basic foundational truths taught in the Bible.
We become the hands and feet of God as we serve one another and reach out to those around our Christian church's local community. Serving demonstrates our commitment to God and each other.
