Core Values

by Duane Mabee on May 25, 2017
The Alliance Core Values are a set of Biblical values that The Christian and Missionary Alliance believes should guide all our churches.  They answer the question “Why do we exist?”  They give direction to our decisions and ministries.  And, they help shape how we do what we do. 

With that in mind, here are the Core Values along with their scriptural basis.  We will be looking at each one over the next several weeks.  Take some time to get familiar with them.  Give some thought to how they might direct what we do and how we do it. 

Alliance Core Values:

  1. Lost people matter to God.  He wants them found. (Luke 19:10).
  2. Prayer is the primary work of God’s people.  (Philippians 4:6-7).
  3. Everything we have belongs to God.  We are His stewards.  (1 Chronicles 29:14)
  4. Knowing and obeying God’s Word is fundamental to all true success.  (Joshua 1:8).
  5. Completing the Great Commission will require the mobilization of every fully devoted disciple.  (Matthew 28:19). 
  6. Without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we can accomplish nothing.  (1 Corinthians 2:4-5). 
  7. Achieving God’s purposes means taking faith-filled risks.  This always involves change.  (Hebrews 11:6).
