Mission Department Values

  • We value relationship with God, demonstrated through Jesus and enabled by the Holy Spirit
  • We value the Word of God as both an instrument of understanding and knowing as well as an instrument of being understood and being known (Heb. 4:12)
  • We value the Church as God's community of believers sent into a world of unbelief as instruments of God (Rev. 1:5-6)
  • We value academics as a doorway into knowing the King of the people (Eph. 1:17-19)
  • We value spiritual disciplines as a doorway into being kingdom people in this world (Eph. 3:16-19)
  • We value mission/ministry as a doorway into participating in kingdom endeavors around the world (Heb. 12:1)
  • We value the kingdom of God on earth as well as in heaven!
