Humility: We serve Jesus as Lord, aware of our weaknesses and failures. We all need God’s grace and extend that grace and forgiveness to others (Colossians 3:12-13)
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Respect: We recognise that all people are made in the image of God. We treat all people with dignity and respect, even in conflict and disagreement (Genesis 1, v 27)
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Passion: We give ourselves fully to Jesus, the filling of the Holy Spirit, and the work of God’s Kingdom. We honour Jesus with our lives and words and invite others to do likewise (Mark 12:29-30)
“Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’
Community: We are committed to one another and the relationships we are part of, locally, nationally, and globally. We love our neighbours as ourselves. (Mark 12:31)
31 The second is this: "Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
Prayer: We depend on God love for all things. We speak to God and through listening submit to his voice as revealed in the Bible
(1 Thess 5:16-22)
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil.
