Core Values

LIVE TRUTH – SPEAK TRUTH – BE TRUTH

Our Core Values are based on our understanding of two passages of the Bible found in 1 Thessalonians 1:3 and 1 Corinthians 13:13:


remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father, (1 Thessalonians 1:3)

And now abide faithhopelove, these three; but the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13)

So we realize how important Faith, Hope and Love are. But it is also clear that they need to be expressed: we need to Live out our Faith (the truth we hold onto), to be a voice of Hope in a hopeless world, and express love to others by being the truth they need.

That’s why we adhere to these core values:

  1. Live Truth; it’s our work of faith. It’s the practical part of living out our faith, and though we may not do it perfectly at first, we need to continuously improve in everything:
    To LIVE TRUTH = CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT;
    to continually strive to be more like Christ and do everything better (Ephesians 4:13)
  2. Speak Truth; it is our expression of patience of hope we have in Jesus. we need to be a voice of hope and encouragement to the world. Therefore we want to be actively mentoring people and speaking life into them:
    To SPEAK TRUTH = MENTORING;
    we teach others what he have learned from God (Philippians 4:9)
  3. Be Truth; it is our labour of love. We need to show the world what Love is in tangible ways, outside of the walls of our building. We need to get involved in the community and show them what love is:
    To BE TRUTH = COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT;
    we get involved and be present in the needs and issues around us (1 Peter 4:10)
