Making Gods Word our Guide
The Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16 – 17). At a personal level, the Core value of Biblical truth means all of our thoughts and actions are filtered through the God-given lens of the Bible. As a Kingdom community, this value means that all our teaching and ministry correspond with the principles outlined in the Scripture.
Putting God First
When asked what the greatest law in the Old Testament was, Jesus responded with – ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind (Luke 10:27).’ Recognizing Gods position in our life and giving Him the honor that He is due is at the heart of worship. As a Kingdom community, Inspired Worship means that God, His Son and His Spirit are at the center of all that we do.
Sacrificing Like Jesus
Jesus exemplified humility and put our ultimate need, a right relationship with God, ahead of His own life (Phil. 2:3 – 11). As we follow Jesus, we too are called to live a life that puts others ahead of our own wants and desires. As a Kingdom community, this means recognizing our world and our communities needs and finding ways to solve those needs through Christ.
Loving Others Like Jesus
According to Jesus, next to loving God, loving others is the essential ingredient to living out Gods plan (Mark 12:31). As a Kingdom community, this means that we have relationships that are authentic, transparent and life-changing. We are designed to build one another up (1 Thes. 5:11) as we move toward eternity together.
Walking with the Spirit
Encompassing all of our statements and values is the belief that we are a people that are led by the Holy Spirit. At CCW we believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us. To live this way, we seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit for God-sized growth, God-shaped transformation, and God-led guidance.
