Women's Core Values
The Women's Ministry is committed to know God by studying His word and to apply His principles through these core values:
Adherence to Sound Doctrine
To love God's word, to be diligent to handle it accurately, and to meditate on its precepts to let it perform its work so as to walk as wise women of God (1 Thessalonians 2:12-13, 2 Timothy 2:15, Psalm 19:7-11, Psalm 119:97, Psalm 119:140, Romans 12:9b, Titus 2:1, 1 Timothy 4:4-6).
Growing Spiritually - Evangelism, Discipling, Mentoring
- To preach the gospel to all creation and to teach others to observe all that Jesus commanded.
- To be personally involved in feasting on the Word of Truth in order to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord
- To employ the spiritual gifts the Holy Spirit has imparted to each one to build up the body of Christ to maturity (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15, 2 Peter 3:18, 1 Peter 4:10, Ephesians 4:11-16).
To purify ourselves just as the Lord is pure and to love others without hypocrisy (Romans 12:9, 1 John 3:2-3, Titus 2:5).
Unity of Relationships
To be diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace with humility of mind looking out for the interests of others, & actively seeking open discussion of ideas in all aspects of planning ministry activities, because we function as one body with many members (Ephesians 4:3, Philippians 2:3-8, Psalm 11:14, 1 Corinthians 12:12, 14, 20, 25)
Welcoming, Inclusive, Inviting - to extend grace and love to all women and to be active in communicating honor to one another in the body of Christ through service and the building up of one another (Romans 13:8, Ephesians 4:16, Romans 12:9-10).
To be devoted in ministry to every good work, to prayer, and to the saints in brotherly love by giving preference to one another and to intentionally exhort, encourage, and implore each one to walk in a manner worthy of God (Romans 12:10-12, 1 Corinthians 16:15, 2 Timothy 5:10, 1 Thessalonians 2:10-12).
To seek first God's kingdom and righteousness, to love God supremely, and to walk in His ways. To hold one another accountable to keep an appropriate balance of priorities, including unscheduled time, in order to maintain the proper use of the body and to avoid over-commitment or neglect of responsibilities, keeping in mind that valuing people is supreme to any project (Matthew 6:33, Deuteronomy 10:12-13, Luke 10:41-42, Titus 2:3-5, 1 Timothy 5:9-10, 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20).
All of which God's power provides through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
