Restoration Church's Core Values
Values determine what you are. Our values influence how we make decisions. They govern us and reflect what is important to us, how we see what’s around us, and resolve what we believe.
We unashamedly and uncompromisingly strive to be:
We value God’s Word as the inherent, infallible foundation of our faith! We stand firm where it stands firm and remain flexible where it is flexible. (2 Timothy 3:16)
In everything, we eagerly pray and seek God first. We measure our success by our ability to be and make disciples. Full devotion to Jesus is normal for every believer. (Luke 9:23)
Authentic in Our Walk
Authenticity, integrity, openness, and sincerity will define us. “The goal of our instruction is love, from a good conscience, a pure heart, and a sincere faith.” (1 Timothy 1:5)
Passionate About Prayer
We believe the attitude and action of prayer is essential to everything we do. (Colossians 4:2)
Committed to The Uncommitted
We believe that lost people matter to God; therefore, they matter to us. Jesus came to seek and save the lost and has left us here, in part, to do the same. Our individual lives and corporate efforts will reflect this conviction. (Luke 19:10)
Advocates of Second Chances
We acknowledge our complete dependence on the goodness and grace of God. We have benefited from the kind intention of His will; therefore, we eagerly extend it to others. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Focused on Ministry and Service
We believe that each believer has received a special gift and should employ it in serving others, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Spiritual giftedness and maturity determine where and how a believer serves. We believe excellence honors God and reflects His character. We strive for excellence without compromise in all areas of our ministry and lives. (1 Peter 4:10; Colossians 3:17)
Committed to Community
Belonging to our community requires a commitment to being intentionally involved with others in accountable, encouraging relationships. We believe life change happens best in the context of relationships. In clusters of caring people, participants share and encourage each other toward spiritual growth. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Radical in Giving
A hallmark of our church is a family of believers that embrace a lifestyle of giving. A church that is radical with the heart to give of themselves – their time, and the resources that God has blessed them with.
We Don’t Maintain, We Multiply
God has given us a burden for the next generation. We long to see a church where children and students are actively pursuing and involved in fulfilling the mission of Jesus.
