Values are those things that define who we are as a church, and where we place importance. Everything we do as a church is filtered through our values and beliefs. We seek to know what matters, what makes a difference and what adds value to our lives! We believe our values help us answer these important questions.
1. WE VALUE RELATIONSHIPS!
Relationships Matter because we are created for relationship with God and one another. It’s who we are. It’s who you are. We value one another and we put effort and energy into establishing and maintaining healthy relationships with God and others.
2. WE VALUE THE BIBLE!
The Bible is more than an inspiring book. It’s more than a historical document. It’s a roadmap. It’s an instruction manual. We value the Bible because it is the Word of God given to us. Because we value the Bible we work to make sure that we follow its instruction in the way we live our lives, and we make it the central focus of our teaching and ministry at Embrace!
3. WE VALUE WORSHIP!
Worship is a very important part of church life. We believe worship is a connection point between our lives and God's heart. Praise and Worship moves us to give thanks to God for who He is and adore Him for all He has done.
4. WE VALUE DISCIPLESHIP!
Discipleship isn't just a church word that gets thrown around. It's actually a very real part of our identity in Christ. Jesus taught His followers to, "Go and make disciples of every nation." Locally that means we teach what Jesus taught, and we do what Jesus did. We help one another on the journey of following Jesus. It's a beautiful picture of God's plan for redemptive living!
5. WE VALUE SERVICE!
Jesus gave great lesson and insight into what it means to serve. He said, "...the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve..." Humility is the hallmark of followers of Jesus. We know, as Jesus demonstrated, we are to serve others. Serving, when done through pure motives blesses the one serving and the one being served. At Embrace Fellowship Church we want to model that Jesus to one another and to our community!
6. WE VALUE YOU!
Every person matters to God. God doesn't extend His love to some while withholding it from others. The young, old, poor and wealthy are all worthy of the love that God has for us. At Embrace Fellowship Church, we believe if God loves everyone, so should we. We hold a core value that we are never more like God than when we truly love one another.
