Core 5: Authentic Relationships

56 views

Published on

This week we will consider our church's fifth core value
A Commitment to Authentic Relationships
We will provide opportunities for people to know and to be known, to love and to be loved, to care and to be cared for, to serve and to be served so everyone might experience the power of true friendship. We will do this as our loving commitment to our fellow believers, and as an example of Christ’s love to the world. We will strive to preserve unity while recognizing and understanding that each person has the individual responsibility to be accepting of others and exhibit the character qualities outlined in scripture that promote the love and unity to foster such relationships.
(John 13:31-35; Acts 2:42-47; I Corinthians 13:4-8a)
