The next section of the Strategic Plan Document is the Core Values. Here’s how it reads:
Core values are those key beliefs and/or statements of fundamental principles that are “non-negotiables” for the church. They are the values the church will literally “die on the hill” over. Everything the church does must be consistent with its core values. The core values will rarely, if ever, be changed or modified.
CCV’s Core Values are …
Biblically Based – The Bible alone dictates what we believe and practice.
Culturally Relevant – To be effective the church must remain culturally relevant.
Evangelistic – Followers of Jesus are passionate about evangelism.
Church Planting – We will be a church planting church.
Community – Life change happens best in community with other Christians.
Discipleship – Followers of Jesus obey his teachings.
Excellence – Excellence honors God and inspires people.
Grace – We will foster an environment of love, acceptance and forgiveness.
Stewardship – We will give our time, spiritual gifts, abilities and finances to extend Christ’s kingdom.
