Day 3: Core Values of SRC
GRACE OF GOD: God’s grace through Jesus Christ is the basis and power, not only of our personal lives, but also of our ministry.
COMMITMENT TO GOD AND HIS WORD: Our aspiration is that our ministries will be marked by a wholehearted devotion to God, through prayer and by studying, obeying and teaching His Word.
GREAT COMMISSION: Our ultimate goal and mission is to reach the whole world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to make disciples of all the nations.
LOCAL CHURCH: The local church is God’s vehicle for accomplishing the Great Commission. The church is the place for winning people to Christ, building them to maturity, raising up leaders, and for preparing church planting teams to be sent out for the expansion of God’s kingdom.
CHURCH LEADERSHIP: We place a priority upon raising up pastors and other leaders of Christ-like character within the local church.
LOVE AND UNITY: We desire our ministry to be marked by a Christ-like, selfless love, loyalty, and unity with fellow believers.
EVERY MEMBER A MINISTER: All Christians are empowered through the Holy Spirit to be workers in the church, not just the pastors. Therefore, we seek to equip and empower each member to utilize his/her spiritual gifts to serve others.
STRONG FAMILIES: Strong families are the foundation for strong churches. Therefore, we make it a priority to equip members and pastors in building their marriages and families.
Of the three ways we believe you can experience Spiritual Growth in Real Purpose, which of these do you find most difficult to apply regularly?
