Chain of Lakes Church
Core Value: A principle, quality, belief, and or/attitude that is foundational to our community
Explanation: A statement that further explains the Core Value
We will go out of our way to welcome people as Jesus welcomed them, with an open heart and open arms.
In every decision we seek to discern God’s desire. No leader, person, or ministry is more important than what God wants.
Jesus successfully communicated his message by using examples and symbols of first century culture. We will be open to using examples and symbols of our culture to communicate Jesus’ message.
We accept people without judgment, regardless of what has happened in their lives or where they are on their faith journeys.
We will keep the needs of the broader world before us and won’t only focus on our own congregation’s needs.
Investing in Future Generations
Our priority is to create an atmosphere where children, youth, and young adults grow in faith.
When we disagree we will encourage discussion while valuing all opinions. We will speak truth in love, treat others respectfully with dignity, and seek to remain in community.
We are released to love each other with joy because of what God has done for us. We are a community who enjoys spending time together and supporting each others’ journey.
