Our Core Values

The pursuit of God

Becoming intimately close with God.

Matthew 22:37-38; James 4:8; Jeremiah 29:13; Philippians 3:10; Hebrews 11:6; Exodus 33:15-16; John 15:5

the pursuit of God Core Values

We are a people who know the value of growing in intimacy with God.  We know that God has pursued our hearts to extraordinary lengths and so we want to engage in his love and pursue him in return.  We do this through worship, meditating on and fully absorbing the word of God, prayer, fasting, soaking and journalling.  By doing these things we don't earn points with God, we give God space to speak, teach, soften our hearts, empower, guide, strengthen, refresh and renew.  In pursuing God, we pursue his presence.  We don't just pursue him so that he can do things for us, we seek him because we simply love to be in his presence.  Valuing and pursuing his presence daily naturally results in supernatural fruit growing in our lives - the fruit of personal transformation, miracles, dreams and visions and revelation.

 

 

Sonship

Learning how to relate to our Heavenly Daddy as precious Sons and Daughters.

Galations 4:4-7; Romans 8:15-16; Ephesians 1:4-6; Jeremiah 3:19

sonship core valuesJesus' death on the cross, as payment for our sin and rebellion against God, has opened up the way for us to receive adoption to sonship.  When we seek his forgiveness and give him the position of God in our lives, we become a son or a daughter of God himself with full adoption rights.  This truth can completely affect the way we relate to God and his children because we see how he truly accepts and receives us fully into his loving arms.  A Holy Spirit given revelation of being a son or daughter of God has the power to free us from our insecurities and feelings of insignificance and walk in the power of the truth.  As a church we walk in the freedom and joy of being his children and being able to call Almighty God, Daddy.  We are on the journey of allowing this truth to deeply impact our devotion to God, his Kingdom and his people.

 

 

Bible Meditation and Revelation

Being devoted to God's Word and the revelation the Holy Spirit brings.

Psalm 119:97; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; Nehemiah 8:1-12; Ephesians 1:17; James 1:22-25

bible mediation core values

 

The word of God is powerful.  It is sharper than a two edge sword.  We value God's word and know that it is God's message of redemption and reconciliation, healing and restoration.  From beginning to end it reveals the heart of God and his purposes for all creation.  Biblical meditation calls for a holistic experience of the word as you read, think, pray, study, imagine, draw, paint, sing, search, write and anything else that enables a deeper saturation of God's truth.  We value revelation over information.  'Knowing' the word is not enough.  Meditation is something that we do that opens our heart to receiving revelation as the Spirit gives it and the evidence of true revelation is that the truth is applied and becomes a living truth in our everyday lives.

 

 

Prayer

Becoming a people of prayer.

Colossians 4:2; Ephesians 6:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; 1 Timothy 2:1; 2 Chronicles 7:14

prayer core valuesWe value prayer and intercession.  Spirit led and empowered prayer draws us into what God is saying and doing and is a key to unlocking heavenly resources for all that we engage in.  It stands on the foundation of true faith, trusting in the goodness of God and his endless supply of all that we need.   Prayer affects the course of history and has the power to transform lives, cities and nations.  In the words of Gordon Fee, "A prayerless life is one of practical atheism."  We see prayer as essential and very powerful.  

 

 

 

 

 

Harvest Reaping

Bringing many into a personal relationship with Jesus and seeing communities transformed.

Matthew 9:37-38; Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 10:13-15; Colossians 4:5-6; Habakkuk 2:14

harvest reapingWe are a church who recognise that there are many more people God wants in his Kingdom as his children.  Jesus used the illustration of a harvest ready for bringing in and we recognise that a major purpose of our existence is to bring the harvest in.  While we enjoy the blessings of God and his favour in our lives we cannot keep it concealed.  People need the hope of Christ and we want to see people set free from the trap and consequences of sin and walking into the abundant life Jesus came to give.  Not only that, but we are set on seeing the whole community affected by the power, wisdom and love of God so that the culture of heaven has greater and greater influence on the culture of the Kyogle community.

 

 

 

 

Worship

Whole-heartedly expressing our deep love for our Creator.

Psalm 29:2; Romans 12:1; John 4:23-24; Exodus 9:1; Revelation 4

worship core valuesWe value worship as the most important ministry we can give ourselves to.  Worship is a ministry to God and this takes precedence over every other ministry no matter how good it is.  Worship is a lifestyle of surrender that quickly and gladly acknowledges and celebrates who God is.  It is also expressed through music and song and we are a church who loves to position our whole selves in this type of expression of worship.  God is worthy of all worship, praise and adoration and we seek to give him that with all that we are.

 

 

 

 

 

The Supernatural

Living overflowing, supernatural, prophetic lives.

Mark 16:17-18; 1 Corinthians 2:4-5; Ephesians 3:20-21; John 14:12; 1 Corinthians 12; Acts 2:17-18; 1 Corinthians 14:1

the supernatural core valuesWe know that God is a supernatural God not limited to our limits and we know he speaks and acts today just as he has done in the past.  We are therefore a prophetic people.  We value the prophetic leading of the Spirit in all we do as a church and we know the God empowers his church to perform miracles, signs and wonders to point people to himself.  These things made up a majority of Jesus' ministry.  The apostles ministry was also filled with the supernatural power of God.  God supernaturally gives many different gifts to his children that display his power and his love and as each member of his family exercises these spiritual gifts, the church grows in strength.  As a church we know that God is able to do the impossible and when, through prayer, we see the impossible happen, God get's glory that no one else can steal.  We know that God can also communicate through visions, dreams and angelic visitations.  God is not limited in anyway by what we think is normal and even reasonable.  He is God and can do whatever he wants whenever he wants even when it defies logic, the laws of nature and our past experiences.

Honour

Honouring God by growing in how we honour others.

Romans 12:10; 1 Samuel 2:8; Romans 10:11; Psalm 8:5; Ephesians 2:6

honour core valuesAs children of God, we have received the greatest honour by being seated with Christ in heavenly places.  We therefore see that it is a great privilege to extend only honour to the people around us.  We want to be just like our Dad.  We honour with the way we speak to and about one another, in a way that edifies and uplifts and paints people in a good light.  We honour people by showing grace and love to one another.  We honour by praying blessing over others.  We honour people by accepting people where they are.  We honour in the way we make what's important to others, important to us.  Dishonour, shame, belittling, control, manipulation, intimidation and placing unrealistic expectations on people are all in line with Satan's tactics and we will not participate in his mission.  We honour God and honour his people for his glory.

 

 

Wholeness

Becoming free and healthy in all areas of our lives.

Luke 4:18-19; James 5:16; Hebrews 12:15; 2 Corinthians 3:17

wholeness core valuesWe know that all of us carry baggage from our past that God wants us to walk free from: Fears, insecurities, abuse, control, offence, anger, laziness, apathy, arrogance, self righteousness,  stubbornness, perfectionism, victim mentality and the list goes on.  Because of the cross, Jesus has already won the victory over all of these and is able to set us free.  We pursue wholeness and inner healing, taking hold of the power of the cross so that Jesus can have the glory that he deserves in our lives.  We do this through community, counselling and prayer ministry.

 

 

 

 

 

Healthy Relationships

Growing vibrant and healthy relationships with others.

1 John 4:21; Romans 12:18; 1 Peter 4:8; Philippians 2:1-11

healthy relationships core valueAs a church, we grow and foster authentic, spiritual community.  Healthy relationships are so important to God and are key to the building of the kingdom.  We know that God's highest priorities are that we love him and love each other.  Sometimes the word 'love' loses it's strength, depth and/or power because of how we use it and so a more apt word would be affection.  We want to express affection towards God and affection towards each other.  Learning to receive the affection of God so that we can always show genuine affection towards each other is the journey we are on.  We are not satisfied with fractured or shallow relationships.  We pursue deep, real and vibrant relationships that are characterised by peace, freedom, joy, giving and receiving. We value the ability to receive love and generosity equally with the ability to give it.

 

 

Generosity

Displaying God's abundance by being radically generous.

2 Corinthians 9:6-9; Philippians 4:15-19; 1 Kings 17:7-16; John 6:1-13

generosity core value clc kyogleGenerosity is a doorway for the supernatural to take place.  It is an attitude that reflects the very nature of God.  It can be giving of time, energy, giftings and resources and when done with a cheerful heart, it always produces abundance.  Jesus spoke a lot about money and taught that giving is an act of faith that demonstrates that God is the one who rules our decisions not money.  An essential element in biblical stewardship is generous giving.  The amount is not what God looks at, it is the attitude and heart behind what is given.  We choose to be generous givers who seek opportunities to bless so that the Kingdom advances.
