1) WE WILL GROW
We know the word and truly walk with God engaging in constant conversation with him.
Joshua 22:5, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Proverbs 7:2&3
2) WE SEE THE BATTLE
We kill our flesh knowing it's the only way to take on God's nature.
3) WE WILL BE A SERVANT OF ALL
We give with everything we have, serve with everything we are and live for the benefit of others.
4) WE LIVE THE COMMISSION
Understanding the world has yet to be reached and do everything in our power to rescue the lost here and around the world.
5) WE CHOOSE LOVE
We are known by our love of everyone, especially our neighbor and choose love even when it hurts.
6) WE SEEK HEALING
With the world we live in, many of us have been traumatized by our family and our past. We realize Jesus is the one to restore us rather than mind numbing drugs or entertainment.
2 Corinthians 1:3&4
7) WE RESPOND TO OUR CALLING
We obey God's voice and choose to live for that which we are called, willing to pay any price God asks of us.
