Core Values

CHRIST-CENTEREDNESS

Christ is the reason for our existence and the driving force for our faith and action. Our life is a display of Christ living through us. Galatians 2:20 Romans. 6:5 acts 17:28

FAITHFULNESS TO THE HOLY SCRIPTURES

Adhere to the holy scriptures of the old and new testament as being the rule and standard of our faith containing all things necessary for salvation (2 Tim. 3:15-17; Heb. 4:12)

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND COMPASSION

It is love that compels us to seek out for the lost souls and also patiently meet the needs of one another as believers. We ought to extend this love to all people even to those that are hard to love Matthew 25:31-46 John 3:16.

BIBLICAL FAMILY VALUES

Family is the smallest unit of the society, and God instituted it to display his nature as a triune God and also to show how He relates to us as our father. The family has two essentials, marriage ( one man one woman for a lifetime), and parenthood. Joshua 24:15, Ephesians 6:22

EXCELLENT LEADERSHIP

We serve a God of excellence, and this is reflected in the creation story that whatever He created was good. Being God’s offspring created; in his image, we have to display excellence in whatever we do to the glory of God. Whatever you do, do it as unto God and not men Colossians 3:23-24
