True Life Church has developed its own set of core values, which are listed below. Our core values are built upon firm Scriptural foundations.
We value the good news that God loves all people and has a plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. He is the only source of salvation. Our hope is in him. He seeks to have us in a growing personal relationship with him.
(John 3:16, 1 John 5:20, Ephesians 4:11-16, 2 Peter 3:18)
We value the Bible because it reveals Jesus Christ as “the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) The Holy Spirit through the Bible shows us our sin and leads us to the cross of Christ for forgiveness. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the good news that is the center of our teaching, the foundation of our daily lives, and our motivation for service.
(2 Timothy 3:16, Romans 3:19-24, Acts 26:22-23, John 16:7-15)
We value the fellowship of God’s people as we gather for worship, encourage one another, and serve the cause of Christ together. We seek to obey Christ’s call to love all people as a response to his love for us.
(John 13:34-31, Matthew 18:20, 2 Corinthians 5:14-15, Hebrews 10:19-25)
We value the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as God’s tangible ways of showing his grace to us. In baptism we “put on Christ” (Galatians 3:27), and in the Lord’s supper we “proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” (1 Corinthians 11:26)
(Luke 22:14-20, John 3:5, Colossians 2:11-12, Romans 6:3-4, Acts 2:38-39, Titus 3:5-7, Matthew 28:18-20)
We value the gifts of repentance and faith and long for people to trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We have the privilege of being part of God’s ministry of reconciliation and seek to be witnesses for Christ and bring glory to God in all aspects of our lives.
(2 Corinthians 5:18-6:2, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 3:19-21, Mark 1:14-15)
We value prayer because God invites us to pray. Prayer reminds us that everything we do requires God’s power and strength. The health of our spiritual lives and the mission of our congregation is fueled by prayer.
(James 5:13-20, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Philippians 4:6-7, Ephesians 6:19, John 15:7, John 16:24, Matthew 6:5-13)
We value the hope of the Second Coming of Jesus and look forward to the promise of eternal life. We seek to reflect the hope that is found in the promises of God. We are grateful that Jesus is preparing a place for those who trust in him and that he is coming again so that we may be with him forever.
(John 14:1-6, Revelations 21:1-4, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-15, Psalm 23:6)
