Our Core Values

Embodying Christian Virtues: Our Fundamental Beliefs and Their Biblical Foundation


Godliness (fruit of the Spirit, compassion, love, humility)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 (NASB)


Excellence (high standards in ministry, academics, and other activities)

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men. Colossians 3:23 (NASB)


Integrity (honest, dependable, trustworthy)

Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a good conscience, desiring to conduct ourselves honorably in all things. Hebrews 13:18 (NASB)


Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities for there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; Romans 13:1-3 (NASB)



Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. John 13:5 (NASB)
