Christ as the center of all we do; every plan or goal we make coming from the heart of God outward, not our plans brought to Him for His stamp of approval
Being rooted in Christ, we together have become yoked to Christ. As we seek to join Him in what He is doing, will learn to walk yoked with Him. Equally so, we will endeavor to walk in unity with each other (Rom. 15:5-6), loving each other deeply (1 Peter 4: 8), bearing one another's burdens (Gal. 6:2), giving each other much grace (1 Peter. 4:10), believing the best about each other (1 Peter. 3:8-9), laying our lives down in service to one another (1 John 16-18), speaking the truth in love to one another (Eph. 4:15-16). Though not perfect in this, we commit to grow towards this end.
Family is born of a blood connection, both physically and spiritually by the blood of Jesus. That being said, God has given us a means to display the out workings of His truth through the core unit of the family. As Christ loves and cares for the church, responsible for her growth and purity, so the husband loves his wife, caring for her and bearing the responsibility for the growth and purity of his family (Eph. 5:25-28). As the church follows and serves Christ, so the wife follows and serves the husband (Eph. 5:22-24). As the Father loves us unconditionally, trains us in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16-17), protects (Ps. 32:7) provides for us (Matt. 6:25-33), delighting in us (Zeph. 3:17), so should we love, train, protect and provide for, and delight in our children, physical or spiritual. As we learn to love, live with and serve our families, so shall we demonstrate God to the world in which we live.
Relationships are the cords that bind us together, be they family relationships, team relationships, or ministry relationships. We will pursue godliness in every area of relationship, loving deeply (1 Pet. 3:8), forgiving freely (Eph. 4:32), serving wholeheartedly (Eph. 6:7), encouraging each other all the more even as the Day draws near (Heb. 10:25). We desire godly relationships so as to further the kingdom of God.
"The earth is the Lord's and everything in it" (Ps. 24:1), Recognizing the responsibility God has given us, we will use with care our time, money, talents, and resources. We will weigh our decisions in light of God's standards to hear the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant".
