In this season, where our church is gathering online and in homes only, we believe more than ever that God is with us. There is something very powerful about “US”. He is for US. He is with US. He is in and among US. We are better together! God says, “He has carefully designed each member and placed it in the body just as He desires.” (1 Cor. 12:18) And David said, “Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.” (Ps 92:13) If you’re like me, you want to flourish. You want to grow! Here are the core values that we believe all of our leaders actively pursue: 1 Attend online church consistently 2 Pray for our church and leadership 3 Invite people to meet the real Jesus 4 Invite people to your online church family 5 Be generous with your tithes and offering All In* Yes! I’m all in! I'm already a part of the Global Family! OUR BELIEFS We Believe... In one God, revealed as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:7-8) God is on your side. We believe you can make it! (Romans 8:31) The absolute inspiration and authority of the Holy Scripture is given by the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:15-16) Water baptism is an outward sign of an inward change and identifies each believer with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. (Romans 6:3-6) God calls every Christian to be a member of a local church. Psalms 92:13 says, “Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish.” And Jesus said, in Matthew 16:18, “The gates of hell will not prevail against the Church.” Being a part of the physical expression of God’s Church is vital for a victorious walk with God. Man was made in the image of God and is the crown of His creation. Man is, prior to salvation, by reason of Adam’s sin, spiritually dead and alienated from his Creator. But now, we walk in our covenant rights and royalty. (Genesis 1:26; Romans 5:18-19) The priesthood of the believer is that all Christians have equal status and direct access to God and the throne of His grace. (1 Peter 2:5, Hebrews 4:16) The baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all believers— empowering them for evangelism and equipping them for personal edification and the edifying of the church. (Acts 1:5-8; 1 Corinthians 12, 14) Salvation and justification is by grace through faith in our Lord’s blood sacrifice on the Cross at Calvary. (Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8) God is not Mad at you, but He is Mad about you! (John 3:16-17) To read more about our vision, beliefs, and story visit our website. READ MORE I have read through and agree with the beliefs of Life Changers Church and will lead in a way that it is in alignment with the vision and beliefs of my church home.* Yes No The Culture of Life Changers Church A Culture of... Vision Vision is the foundation for everything we do, how we do it, and most importantly, WHY we do what we do. "Without a vision, the people perish..." Proverbs 29:18. The immense impact this vision has on the eternal destiny of countless lives simply cannot be ignored. Can We believe it CAN be done. There is no "Can't" in our organization or mindset. We will be solution-minded, not problem-centered. We will seek to live without complaint. Negativity is our enemy. We choose to fast from negative thoughts, attitudes and words. We choose to live by faith in our lives and our organization. Love Only God’s LOVE can change this world. Covering the earth with the LOVE of the Father begins at home where we will believe in the love God has for us until it flows out of our expressions, our speech and our actions. LOVE GIVES. We will give with extravagant generosity. LOVE SERVES. We will serve with uncommon sacrifice. LOVE COVERS. We will cover one another and expose the real enemy, the devil. We will avoid all gossip and negative speech about one another at all cost. Change It’s in our DNA & in our name. We know that nothing alive stays the same forever. We will be flexible and adapt without complaint as change comes. Innovation & Creativity There is always a better way; and a way to get better. We will continually seek it. We will never say: “That’s the way we’ve always done it.” We will challenge small thinking, find creative solutions to every problem and focus on unlimited resourcefulness rather than limited resources. Servanthood Serving is not a stepping-stone to greatness. It IS greatness. Serving in a spirit of humility is how we will live—toward God; toward one another; and toward both friend and stranger. We will apologize quickly; forgive quickly; and avoid an exaggerated opinion of our own self-importance. Collaboration It’s all about TEAM. Together Everyone Achieves More. Together Everyone Achieves Miracles. We will tear down silos, and operate as one unit. We will respect the individual demands on one another, but will never put our individual responsibilities above the goal of the team or the success of our church. Celebration The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever! Life is to be a celebration of forgiveness and relationship with God, which spills over into the celebration of one another. We are not ignorant of the task at hand; and problems that exist, but we will make the workplace and ministry a joy to be a part of every day. Commitment We will NOT STOP SHORT. We will be committed to God; to the vision of our church; and to one another. Commitment means follow through. Follow through is the completion of a movement without stopping short. We will not stop until the job is done right. Excellence We will not settle for second best of ourselves or one another. We will only accept the best version of ourselves, our church and ministry. Therefore we will embrace critique. We will look for it, and ask for it. And we will not be offended when it comes. Personal Responsibility We will never say “that’s not my job” or “no one ever told me to do that”. We will all pick up trash. We will all offer help in any area of the church, department-related or not. We are always looking for ways to make Life Changers a better place. We will not seek to be right, but rather to make things right. Accountability ABC = Accountability Breeds Champions. We will be accountable to God, our values, our leaders and one another. We will be open and transparent when we are struggling. When something goes wrong, we will OWN it, fix it and not blame anyone for it.
