We choose to love, not judge. We aspire to serve and love all people well. We see each person through the eyes of the Creator and see their potential, instead of their current mistakes or behavior. We show God’s love to every person with whom we interact. We practice unconditional love for others and we will embrace godly character without compromise.
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12 NIV
2. We Hear God Daily
We equip people to connect to God personally every day. We believe every person has the ability to hear from God and that God speaks to us in many ways—through the Bible, dreams, visions, angelic encounters, and many other ways, including modern day parables
“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” Acts 2:17 NIV
3. We Are Powerfully Positive
God’s love and nature are positive, so we align and agree with that in our lives. When we see negative attacks or situations we choose to flip things to the positive. We speak and prophesy a solution, not the problem. We stay powerfully positive—having a confident expectation in what God is doing; we keep our heads up despite the magnitude of the winds and waves.
“Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about.” Philippians 4:8b TLB
4. We Are Naturally Supernatural
We demonstrate God’s love and power in down-to-earth practical ways so people of all walks of life can receive it. We avoid insider or religious (“Christianese”) language and desire to speak in a naturally supernatural way.
“Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.” Ephesians 6:19 NIV
5. We Activate Destiny
We believe everyone has a unique, God-given destiny and a life purpose to do what God calls them to do, in His timing. We equip people with resources, tools and strategies to discover, pursue and activate their destiny.
“'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
6. We Are Fun & Playful
God is not frowning so why would we? We aim to bring fun and play into all we do. We do not take ourselves too seriously because God is fun and playful with us too. We have fun working together. Life in the kingdom can be fun!
“A happy heart is good medicine and a joyful mind causes healing …” Proverbs 17:22a AMP
7. We Are Agents of Change
Some have presented the message of Jesus negatively, so one of our assignments from God is to be change agents. In a world that desperately needs hope, we do everything in our power to extend love and encouragement. We intentionally go against the negative tide to lead a new paradigm of love and be a M*A*S*H unit—Mobile Army Surgical Hospital.
“… God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” Acts 10:38b NKJV
8. We Embrace Health and Wholeness
God created us body, soul and spirit, so we are living examples of His craftsmanship. We believe, practice and teach healthy lifestyles and consider our bodies to be temples of the Holy Spirit. We also value God’s creation by caring for the environment and well-being of others.
“… Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own." 1 Corinthians 6:19 NIV
