Values are ideals that guide our personal conduct, relationship with others and our involvement in any vocational path. Core Values help us to distinguish what is holy from what is ungodly and inform us on how we can conduct ourselves in a Christ-like manner.
Where love and charity abide, there is always God. Loving God above all else will always activate a loving act of charity. “In all things charity” (Col 3:14).
Transparency is our daily way of life. We recognize the need for absolute honesty in every thing we do and say. “In everything set an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed, because they have nothing bad to say about us” (Titus 2:7-8).
For all success and failures, we give God the glory, praise and worship. We duly recognize the church is His work. All who are part of our team become vessels of His power and purpose. “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3).
The call of God requires a commitment to give the best you can and beyond. All of us will work together so that we may pass this test. “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things” (Philippians 4:8).
We have a set of core values and policies that are accountable for the task Christ has entrusted to us, both as individuals and as a community. “Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God” (Romans 3:19).
Tolerance describes attitudes and practices that prohibit discrimination against anyone. Hence, we will not discriminate on any basis such as color, creed, religious beliefs, social status, etc. – In the inherent value of every person as a child of God’s creation, people are worthy of respect, support and caring. “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another, so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and in thought” (1 Corinthians 1:10).
