CORE VALUES

 

Church:  Transformation Church is not a building or a place.  We are people who love God, love people, and live transformed by gathering to study the Bible, serve our communities, and worship together.

Truth:  Our impact is attributed to both the cultural relevancy and doctrinal purity of the Bible, which governs everything we do.  (1 Corinthians 9:19-23; 2 Timothy 2:15; Colossians 1:15-23)

Prayer:  Prayer is vital to everything we do individually and collectively.  It is our means of communication with God and His means of revelation to and through us.  Active prayer will always precede prayerless action.  (Luke 18:1-8; John 14:12-14; John 15:1-8; Philippians 4:6-8; Colossians 4:2-4; James 5:13-18)

Spiritual Growth:  Spiritual growth is a lifelong journey, not a day’s travel.  It is our passion that people are transformed by discovering the God of the Bible and Scripture’s relevance and application to our culture, communities, experiences and understanding their life’s purpose. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 2 Peter 1:3-8; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Galatians 5:16-18, 24-26; Ephesians 2:1-10; John 15:1-10)

Excellence:  We strive to do everything with excellence because God is worthy of our best. (Colossians 3:23-24; 2 Timothy 2:15)

Flexibility, Creativity & Relevance:  The message of God’s Word, the Bible, will never change but our methods of communicating it will.  The Bible is alive and active, and we will respond to how God is working in the present at Transformation Church. (Hebrews 4:12)

 Community/Relationships:  Humanity was designed for meaningful relationships and community.  We celebrate together in times of joy, weep together in times of sorrow, share with one another generously and love each other genuinely.  (Romans 12:9-18; Acts 2:42-47)

Service:  We are contributors, not consumers, doing whatever it takes to share the love of God. Created in God’s image, we believe that every person is significant for service - their identity, motivation, abilities, gifts, and experience making up their unique spiritual DNA through which God will transform their spheres of influence. (Romans 12:1-13; 1 Peter 4:10; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; John 15:12-17)
