Core Values

We love and adore God

The Church is for God first, and we must be a place where He is profoundly adored and passionately praised. We have the ministry of His feet and worship is our highest joy. 

Philippians 2:9-11; Revelation 5:12

His presence is our focus

If His presence isn’t with us, we won’t go; we will not move when His Spirit is not leading us. Together we are following after Him!

Exodus 33:15, Psalm 16:11, 2 Corinthians 2:17

We are people of His Word

We desire His Word and want more of His grace. Jesus called the Word of God ‘Daily Bread’, so we feed on it everyday – not just Sunday. We do not just study the Word, but we also live it. We do what we preach.

Psalm 119:105, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, James 1:22

One family with a mission

We come to His feet to become His feet. Together, we preach and live the Gospel of His kingdom. We are a family that takes His mission out, locally and across the nations. Our mindset is, if Jesus lived in our city, how would He live? As a Church, just as mothers and fathers have Children, our Church will empower leaders to plant new churches that have a missional focus for the Gospel. We think like heaven over people, build up the weak, and empower the strong.

John 17:21-23, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:42-47, 1 Corinthians 12:12-14

A house of the fivefold ministry

We are a church that functions in the grace of the fivefold ministry. All gifts that come from God are to be discovered, recognized, and celebrated. We are thankful for all He has placed in people, and we need each other’s strengths to see the fuller picture of Christ.

Ephesians 3:18-20, Ephesians 4:11-16, Luke 10:1-2, 1 Corinthians 12:4-14

Not just a church but a movement

We have a local Church that God is building into a strong house, but we are not just a Church that gathers but a movement led by Awakening Europe, that sends people all across Europe preaching the Gospel. We have the honor of working with many denominations across the continent and see that unity is necessary for the harvest in this hour. To the glory of God, over the last years we have seen thousands and thousands of Europeans turned to Christ.

Acts 4:20, 29-31, Psalm 71:14-15

We celebreate the testimonies of God

We celebrate what God is doing as He is creating His-story. Testimonies must be remembered and declared again and again. We celebrate salvation constantly as we desire for Jesus to get His full reward – not just souls in heaven, but deep lovers serving Him on Earth.

Matthew 24:14, Acts 1:8, 2 Timothy 1:8, Revelation 12:11

We have a culture of honor

We love people and embrace them with gentleness and mercy. Jesus told us to make disciples – they don’t come ready-made. So we spend time and resources to develop, speak Heaven’s perspective into one another and help motivate people to grow in areas where they are weak. Our community honors each other’s gifts and we strive to see the best in people. This will be what we pursue as a culture, a culture of growth like a greenhouse.

Romans 12:10, 1 Peter 2:9, Philippians 2:3, Romans 13:7, Hebrews 3:13, Hebrews 13:17, Matthew 18:15-20
