Seven Foundations of the Church
• 1. Liberality and Generosity – We believe that God has given to each of us liberally and generously and therefore we should, in turn, be liberal and generous with our time, our talents and our financial resources. (2 Cor. 8:1-7)
• 2. Continuous improvement and continuous study – Because the revelations of God are continuous and progressive, we believe that we should continue to grow and improve as a result of continuous study and revelation of God’s Word. (Proverbs 4:18)
• 3. Order and Discipline – God has commanded that all things be done decently and in order and therefore we strive to exercise the highest personal discipline and spiritual order in our lives and services, while still allowing room for Spiritual freedom. (1 Cor. 14:40)
• 4. Skill and Integrity – We believe that all things pertaining to the Kingdom of God and to the affairs of this life ought to be done with the utmost skill and integrity. Therefore we will never use our gifts and talents in any way which will deceive or mislead those who look to us for guidance and example. (Psalms 78:72)
• 5. Exhortation and Encouragement – We believe that the principle purpose of each believer is to encourage and exhort one another. Therefore we will use all of our endeavors to build up and encourage each other. (Hebrews 3:13)
• 6. Kingdom Strong and Community Sensitive – We believe that every believer should be strong in their faith and the things of the Kingdom of God. We also believe that we should demonstrate that strength through good works in the community. (Titus 3:8)
• 7. Individual Responsibility and Ownership – We believe that the complete work of redemption is a sovereign work of God. However, we, as individuals have a responsibility to act in accordance to the Grace has given to us and take ownership of the work that has already been done. (Phil. 2:12)
