OUR VALUES | ABC CHURCH

WORSHIP   We seek to give God's love back to Him and enter into His presence. Worship the LORD with gladness. Come before Him, singing with joy. Acknowledge that the LORD is God! He made us, and we are His. We are His people, the sheep of His pasture. (Ps 100:2-3 NLT)

THE BIBLE   We pursue God's authoritative instruction for right living. 'The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. (2 Timothy 3:16 TLB)

RELATIONSHIP   We grow together and we share our lives with one another by regularly meeting together in large and small groups. ... you are members of God's very own family...and you belong in God's household with every other Christian. (Ephesians 2:19 TLB)

MATURITY   We seek to grow up spiritually as we apply God's principles to everyday living. We are not meant to remain as children... but to grow up in every way into Christ... (Ephesians 4:14-15 Ph)

GENEROSITY   God is the giver of everything, so we willingly and generously give back to Him. The generous prosper and are satisfied; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25 NLT)

AUTHENTICITY   We want to respond naturally to God, avoiding behavior that draws attention away from Him and to ourselves. He (God) must become greater, and I must become less important. (John 3:30 NCV)

RELEVANCE   We believe the message of Jesus is as practical and useful today as it was 2000 years ago. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 NCV)

COMPASSION & MERCY   We desire to bless others with practical expressions of God's love. ...be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. (Luke 6:36 NLT)

MISSIONS   We extend the Good News of Jesus Christ to all outside our Father's house. Jesus said to his followers, Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone.' (Mark 16:15 NCV)

FUN   We encourage joyful expressions such as laughter, happiness and having fun together. Happy are the people whose God is the LORD. (Ps 144:15 NCV)

CHANGE   We welcome change as God transforms us into a more effective force in our world. Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do… (Romans 12:2 NLT)
