I was recently encouraged by a post on a church volunteer website about a Christian's Core Value.
Churches that have a higher percentage of people involved in serving live out these six values found in 1 Corinthians 1:2-9. 2 To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours: 3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.4 I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5 For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— 6 God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8 He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
PRAYER- The Church needs to rely on this to see God in all aspects of their ministry.
The PRIESTHOOD of All Believers - The church seeks to equip people for ministry in the family, the church, the community, and the world.
SERVANT Leadership - Demonstrates genuine humility, authenticity, accountability, and genuine care of people.
TEAM Ministry - Willingness of people to work for the good of the greater body.
INTENTIONALITY - Through the intentional implementation of systems to prepare, connect, and equip people for ministry inside and outside the walls of the church.
Proactive Toward CHANGE - The church continually changes its methods, but maintains the consistent message of God’s Word.
Let's continually work on the values we need for serving God’s Kingdom. Amen?
