EAST HILL CHURCH FAMILY CORE VALUES
WE BELIEVE THAT RELATIONSHIPS ARE FIRST.
Because people are eternally valuable to God, they are to us as well. Therefore, we place the highest value on our relationship with God and relationships with each other. (Matthew 18:15-17; 22:36-40; John 13:35; 15:12; I Peter 4:8; I John 4:7, 11; Romans 12:12)
WE BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF GRACE-FILLED TRUTH TELLING.
Learning to speak the truth in grace- filled ways is critical to each person’s development; therefore; a lifestyle of consistent spiritual growth is characterized by honest and gracious accountability. (John 1:14, 16; Ephesians 4:15; I Corinthians 13:1-3; Colossians 4:6)
WE BELIEVE IN A GROWING SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE.
God is worthy of our very best, therefore we desire not perfection, but excellence in all we do through a constant willingness to improve for the sake of the Kingdom. (Psalms 78:72; Daniel 5:12; Colossians 3:17, 23-24; I Corinthians 10:31)
WE BELIEVE IN DOING CHURCH AS A TEAM.
Believers find their greatest joy and fulfillment in life when they use their gifts and passion to serve Jesus. Every member is a minister who has gifts that need to be discovered, developed and deployed. God’s design for effective ministry happens as we work together in unity. (Eccl. 4:9-12; Mark 10:45; Rom. 12:1; 1Cor. 12:14-20; 1 Peter 2:4-9; Eph.4:11-16)
WE BELIEVE IN RELEASING EMERGING LEADERS.
God is constantly raising up men and women in every generation who will take the baton of godly character, authentic faith and servant hearted leadership to reach the world. (2Tim. 2:2; 1 Tim. 3:1; Titus 1:5-9; Psalms 78:6-7)
