Our Core values
God is good, Identity, Kingdom
God is Good:
It the goodness of god that leads people to repentance - God and everything he does is good
Jesus is the final word on the character and Love of God and through Him we can become children of God. A person literally has the opportunity to have Holy Spirit (the same Spirit that rose Jesus from the dead) become one with them. Because of this miracle, each person now has access to all the resources of heaven. God truly becomes your Father. The perfect Father.
God is for us; He chose to redeem us from our sin. Romans 5:8; Romans 8:31-32; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 2 Corinthians 5:19.
God is not mad at us. 2 Peter 3:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9; Romans 14:17-18; John 10:10; Romans 2:4; Zephaniah 3:17.
God's desire is to prosper us in every area of our lives: physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and vocationally. Psalm 103:1-5; 2 Corinthians 9:8-10; Genesis 12:1-3; Isaiah 26:3; Isaiah 53:4-6; Luke 9:6; Luke 9:56; 3 John 1:2; Jeremiah 29:11.
Jesus is our model. He healed all the sick He encountered and never said sickness was from God. In the new covenant, God does not generally use sickness to teach lessons, build character or punish people. Matthew 4:23; Matthew 8:2-3; Acts 10:38; Mark 3:20-27.
We live with the practical conviction that God wants to save and heal everyone. 1 Timothy 2:4; Acts 10:38; Ezekiel 33:11; Matthew 4:23-24; Matthew 8:1-3;
Matthew 8:16-17; Matthew 9:35; Matthew 14:34-36; Mark 6:56; Luke 9:11.
God will never take His purposes or His gifts from our lives. Romans 11:29; Romans 8:28; Ephesians 1:4-6.
We are God masterpieces. His process and pruning are always meant to reveal our true identity and release us into fullness of life. Ephesians 2:10;
Psalm 139:13-17; John 15:1-2; Hebrews 12:5-13.
God hears and always responds to our prayers. James 1:5; James 1:17; Romans 8:26-27; Romans 8:32; 1 John 5:14 - 15; Matthew 7:7; Luke 18:1-8; 2 Corinthians 1:20.
We must learn to see ourselves as our Father does. Although we tend to measure our worth by what we can do or not do, our real value and identity is something that can only be discovered in having an ongoing connection with Holy Spirit. Because we are now His, we get the privilege of trusting that what he says about us is true. When you put your trust in who He says you are, you are no longer striving to be better. Your new reality of who you are is what dictates how you live. In other words, if you see yourself as God sees you, you will conduct yourself in that same way. No more shame about what more you need to do. Your are now a new creation that carries His power.
Ephesians 2:4-6; Romans 3:24; Romans 8:1-4; Romans 8:29-30; Romans 8:33-34; Galatians 2:20; 1 John 4:17.
We no longer live under shame or condemnation because it has been lifted off of us by His grace. Romans 8:1; John 3:17.
Freedom, blessing, and abundant life are available to us now. John 10:10; 3 John 2; 2 Corinthians 9:8-11; Matthew 6:33; Mark 10:29-30; Proverbs 3:9-10; Philippians 4:19.
God doesn’t remember our sins nor hold them against us, therefore we are not defined by our past. Isaiah 43:25; Psalm 103:12; Micah 7:19; Romans 6:4; Romans 8:1-2; Hebrews 9:26; 1 John 1:9; Acts 3:19; 2 Corinthians 5:17.
We have been given authority and access to God’s resources for the sake of the world. Matthew 18:18-19; Luke 9:1-2; Luke 10:1, 19; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:12-14; Ephesians 2:10; Acts 10:37-38; Luke 15:31.
We are citizens of another Kingdom and live from heaven towards earth. Philippians 3:20; Ephesians 2:4-7, 19; 1 Peter 2:9; 1 John 4:17; Colossians 1:13; Colossians 3:1-3.
Our new normal is to hunger and thirst for His righteousness to be revealed in the earth. Matthew 5:6; Matthew 6:33; Acts 2:42-47; Philippians 4:8.
One way to renew our minds and establish new habits of the heart and mind is by believing and declaring His truth and promises. Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 1:20-22; Ephesians 4:21-24; John 8:31-32; Job 22:28.
We can grow in our ministry and gifts through the laying on of hands and receiving impartation from other believers. Matthew 10:41; Acts 13:2-3; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6; Romans 1:11-12.
Jesus was always teaching about His Kingdom and so must we. We believe that every Person that is in Christ is in the Kingdom. Because of this, we are all in the ministry regardless of occupation. Through partnering with Jesus we are able to be a fulfillment of the prayer that “His Kingdom will come and His will will be done on earth, the same as in Heaven”. Whatever you do, do whole heartedly unto the Lord. Do everything by faith. Everything we do represents who Jesus is. Supernatural Love!
We focus on the good that God is doing in the world and live with contagious hope and joy. Romans 15:13; 2 Corinthians 4:16-18; Philippians 4:8-9; Ephesians 1:17-19; Acts 13:52.
Jesus has already won; we pray and minister from the power of His victory over darkness. Ephesians 1:18-23; Ephesians 2:4-6; 1 John 3:8; 1 John 4:4; Matthew 11:11; Isaiah 54:17.
We recognize that God’s Spirit is at work everywhere in the world and we partner with Him so people are reconciled to Him. Psalm 139:7; Romans 5:20; 2 Corinthians 5:16-20; Matthew 10:7-8; Mark 16:15-18; Romans 10:14-15; Colossians 1:28-29; Matthew 24:14.
We seek Heaven’s answers for earthly problems and take practical risks in faith to see the answers realized in our world. Matthew 6:9-10; Genesis 41:1-46; Acts 11:27-30; Matthew 17:24-27; 1 Samuel 14:6-23; Acts 3:1-10.
We discover our gifts and excel in them in order to best serve society and its leaders, so we all may prosper. Daniel 1:16-21; Daniel 2:26-28; Genesis 41:1-46; 1 Timothy 2:1-2; 1 Peter 4:10-11; 1 Timothy 4:14-16; Proverbs 22:29; Exodus 31:1-11.
We bless and pray for people who persecute us as we seek to bring Heaven to earth. Matthew 5:43-45; Luke 6:27-28; Proverbs 25:21; Acts 16:22-34.
One of the ways we transform the world is by agreeing with and declaring the good news of the Kingdom. Proverbs 11:11; 2 Corinthians 4:13; Matthew 10:7-8; Proverbs 18:21; James 3:2-5; Matthew 16:18-19; Matthew 18:18-20; Matthew 21:21-22.
We live to make the world better for future generations that we may never see. Proverbs 13:22; Deuteronomy 7:9; 2 Timothy 2:2; Isaiah 9:7.
