CORE VALUES

God Is Good

God describes Himself as gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. God is good and, by nature, in a good mood.

Psalm 103:8–13; Acts 14:16-17; James 1:17–18; 2 Peter 3:9; Matthew 7:11; Galatians 5:22–23; Psalm 119:68; Zephaniah 3:17; Psalm 104; Exodus 34:5–7; Acts 17:22-31

The message, ministry, and sacrifice of Jesus perfectly reveal the nature of God as a good Father.

John 3:16–17; Hebrews 1:2–3; John 14:6–7; Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 1:19, 2:9John 1:1, 18; 8:1–11, 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

Enemies come to steal and kill, but Jesus came to destroy demonic works and give us abundant life.

John 10:10–11; 1 John 3:8; Acts 10:38; 1 Peter 5:8–10; Ephesians 6:12; Mark 5:1–19

God’s goodness is extravagant. As we remember and retell what He has done through our testimonies, faith is created that He is able and eager to do it again.

Romans 10:15-17; Hebrews 13:7-8; Acts 10:34-48; Revelation 19:10; Psalm 44:1-5, 119:11; Mark 5:18-21; Deuteronomy 6:17-24I Chronicles 16:23–36; Joshua 4:1–9
