What are your core values? Those values that guide you in making decisions. Recently, I was involved in a conference on core values for individuals. If you'd like to know more about that, just let me know. This note is not about that; it's about church values.
After that workshop, I began thinking of our church's core values. What those innate qualities of our church that guide our decisions and direction. For a long time, I've been to seminars, workshops, and read books on the importance of core values.
Here are four values that I feel make up our church's values:
Did you see the PFBC in that? People, saved and lost, matter to us because they matter to God. He loves them so much that He sent His Son to die for their salvation.
Growing Faith should be a goal of all Christians. That we would grow closer to God and know more about Him through prayer, Bible reading, prayer, fellowship, and being a witness for Him.
Biblical Foundation is what we are built upon as a church. The Bible is the owner's manual and the church's operation manual. Everything we do must align with the Bible's teachings.
God Centered. The reason we are here - To Give God Glory. It's not about me or us; it's about God. We are here by the grace and mercy of God. As a result, all we do should bring Him honor, praise, and glory.
Pray about these values and how they line up with who we are as PFBC and your values. Let's keep focused on the God Almighty in 2022!
