Core Values

I have been thinking through what we as First Baptist Church should say/believe we're committed to. I have come up with 9 so far that are in rough shape and order. I would like to tighten this up so we'll be able to use it to bring glory to God and to continue to unify our church.

What do you think?

What would you add?

1. Biblical Preaching and Teaching
2. Corporate Worship
3. Personal Disciplines
4. Prayer Dependent
5. Biblical Community
6. Discipling Others
7. Sacrificial Care
8. Missions
9. Personal Evangelism

Gospel Centrality...

For our church plant, our three values are Gospel, Community, and Mission. I recognize that this is leaving out much that is crucial to the church, but it seems to be a comprehensive summary of the flow of what a church looks like and how it develops (and perpetuates): the Gospel creates community that goes on mission for Jesus, which consequently brings people into the community that are raised up to go on mission for Jesus, which consequently brings people into the community...
