THE CHANGE CHURCH VALUE
STATEMENTS

  • HONOR – Honor is a part of the culture of God’s Kingdom. Honor visibly
    demonstrates God’s love to God’s people. We are called to honor up, honor
    down and honor all around.
  • HUMILITY – Humility suggests that we never leave the posture of a
    student. A disciple is a lifelong learner.
  • HOSPITALITY – Our commitment to hospitality is birthed out of our desire
    to welcome people into our family the way God welcomed us into His. Our
    hospitality is expressed in our commitment to go the extra mile for those
    we are serving.
  • HONESTY – Our commitment to honesty is based on the scripture’s
    admonition to speak the truth in love. Love without truth is deception, and
    truth without love is cruelty. Where there is no truth, there is no growth.
  • HEALTH – Our culture of health is based on our conviction that it is
    possible to be “right” and not be “whole”. We believe health is essential in
    5 distinct areas. We need health: spiritually, emotionally, physically,
    relationally, and financially.
  • HOPE – Hope describes our commitment to untamed optimism. Hope
    doesn’t deny reality, but it believes God to do all things well in spite of it.
  • HUNGER – Hunger describes our desire for an insatiable appetite for God’s
    presence, God’s principles and God’s plan.
