VALLEY FIRST ASSEMBLY OF GOD

Core Values

 

1. We Value Christ’s Headship
We acknowledge Christ as the Head of CMC and submit our activities and ourselves to His Will. (Eph 1:22, 23)

 

2. We Value The Bible
We acknowledge the Bible as the only authoritative, inspired and infallible Word of God free from error and it is our rule for faith and conduct. We teach the Bible with integrity and power and make the Bible the foundation of all we do.(2 Tm 3:16, Mt 24:35, Ps 119)

 

3. We Value Prayer
We acknowledge that Prayer is power! We acknowledge that prayer can bring about changes in people, churches, and the community. We acknowledge that private and corporate prayer must bathe all planning and execution of all ministries and activities of CMC. We acknowledge that Prayer in its basic form is simply talking to God.(Mt. 7:7-11, James 5:16, Mt. 18:19-20)

 

4. We Value Worship
We acknowledge Worship as an expression of the believer’s love for God. We Worship God because of: Who God is, What God has done, and Our love for God. We acknowledge that individuals must come together for corporate Worship of the Creator of the Universe. We acknowledge that there is liberty given to individual expression for worship, done decently, and in order. (Rom. 12:1, Isa 43:10, Ps 92:4-5, 1 Jn 4:19, Heb 10:25)

 

5. We Value The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We acknowledge that believers should pursue the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and that this Baptism is available to all believers. We acknowledge that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit will empower us in the ministry of God’s Word and God’s Will. We acknowledge that the initial physical evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is speaking in an unlearned language. (Acts 2:14, Acts 1:8)

 

6. We Value The Family
We acknowledge that every member of the family is important to God and is thereby important to CMC. We acknowledge that we encourage the strengthening of the family unit through Bible based teaching and encouragement which results in a stable home environment. We support the spiritual nature of the family as one of God’s dynamic means to carry on the Christian Faith. (Mt 19:14, Jam 1:27, Ps 127:1)

 

7. We Value Lost People
We acknowledge that we will pursue, convert, and disciple the unchurched, lost people of the Valley, the State, the Country, and the World. We will use every Godly means available to seek and find, that which is lost! We acknowledge that it is God’s will for all believers to be involved this pursuit. (Mt 28:18-20, Acts 1:8, Luke 19:10)

 

8. We Value Relationships
We acknowledge that healthy Relationships are a vital part of the total Christian life, therefore we encourage fellowship among the attendees of CMC. We commit ourselves to each other . . . to be there when needed. (Acts 2:42, Col 3:12-17)

 

9. We Value Unity
We acknowledge that Unity must be maintained in order to see the full power of God at work. Therefore we will not participate in gossip or back-biting and will make every effort to keep the bonds of peace. (Col 3:12-17, 1 Cor 1:10)

 

10. We Value Excellence
We acknowledge that God sent His best to us, and therefore we must strive for excellence in all of our activities and ministries. We acknowledge that each believer should be challenged to give God the best of their time, talent and resources because we know that God is worthy of our best. (Col 3:23, 2 Tm 2:15)
