CORE VALUES

Focused on His Presence

Our first ministry is to God. As we behold Him, we are moved to worship with joyous passion.

Psalm 27:4; Luke 10:39–42; James 4:8; Psalm 1:1–3, 23:6, 26:8John 4:23; Psalm 22:3

God delights in us and He has always desired to be with us. We focus on His presence because we have discovered that He is focused on us.

Ephesians 1:4–5; Zephaniah 3:17; Jeremiah 31:3; Psalm 65:41 John 3:1; Revelation 3:20; 1 John 4:19

God is a good Father; we can trust Him regardless of our circumstances.

Romans 8:28–32; Hebrews 11:6; Nahum 1:7; James 1:12–18;
Matthew 10:29–31; Acts 16:23–26

Purposefully cultivating a hunger for God’s manifest presence and an openness to experiencing the Holy Spirit deepens our friendship with God and our awareness that we carry His presence for the sake of the world.

Psalm 73:28, 107:9; John 1:16; Matthew 5:6; Isaiah 55:1–2;
1 Corinthians 3:16

As a lifestyle, we practice recognizing God’s presence while we minister to others, attempting to say what He is saying and do what He is doing.

John 5:19–20, 30, 12:49–50, 14:10; 1 John 4:16–17
