Core Values

Core Value #1
PASSION FOR CHRIST
   The Blue Church's passion for God is expressed first by our affirmation of the Bible as the authoritative, inerrant and inspired Word of God. Our faith and doctrine is grounded in the Bible and the Bible guides church decision making. Our passion for God is further expressed by our commitment to the centrality of prayer in the corporate life of our church. Prayer will be the "first work" of our church. Steadfastness is our commitment to the Bible and prayer will manifest itself in a church marked by holiness of heart and life. That which we say and do corporately will define us as "a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God."
(2 Timothy 3:16; Colossians 4:2; Philippians 4:6-7; 2 Timothy 1:8-9; 1 Peter 1:15; 2:9-10)
 
Core Value #2
COMPASSION FOR THE LOST
Our purpose is to know Christ and make Him known. We will endeavor "to make Christ known" in the least reached communities of our world by acting, in Christ-like mercy, to alleviate human suffering and by proclaiming, with the Holy Spirit's power, the good news of salvation. "to make disciples of all nations"
(Matthew 28:16-20; Micah 6:8; Romans 1:14-17; Matthew 9:35-38)
 
 
Core Value #3
HEALTHY MINISTRIES
Our church's mission is to raise up disciples that will proclaim Christ to a hurting world. When a church is healthy, lives are being changed by Christ, and the culture in which the church ministers is Biblically impacted. Our resources of time, talent and money will be directed to ministries that are committed, in word and action, to becoming healthy communities of faith.  
(Acts 2:42-47; 4:32-35)
