At Whitewater Community Church, everything we do is built upon our core values. When we discovered what we stand for, and on what principles we operate, our vision and mission naturally came to fruition from the Scriptures. In designing our vision, we simply asked one question, "What was the vision the Apostle Paul had for planting churhces?" If our core values, vision, and mission are items that you value as well, we pray that you would join us in our efforts to make disciples.
Our core values answer three questions:
Why do we do what we do?
What is most important in the life of God's church?
On what principles do we operate?
1. Glorifying Worship
We value genuine, humble, and unceasing worship in Spirit and Truth that glorifies the One True God, radiates from the Gospel, proclaims the
supremacy of Christ, and ignites faith in Him (Hebrews 12.28-29).
We prayerfully depend on God for all wisdom, guidance, and direction in sustaining us through His sovereign, providential care. We value the opportunity to ask of the Father, through the Son, and by the Spirit in any circumstance, thankfully and humbly submitting to His will
We value and uphold the Scripture as inspired by God, inerrant, sufficient, and authoritative for all matters of godliness. We stand firm upon the written Word of God in all acts of worship, continually nurtured on its endless treasure and revelation of God (2 Timothy 3.16-17).
We support and uphold the spiritual nurture of the family as one of God's dynamic means to perpetuate the Christian faith and grow the Kingdom of God. Our earthly families reflect our greater heavenly family, which has been united through the Cross (Psalm 128).
We commit to a missional life. This is a life marked and caught up by the Gospel. It reflects the mission of God sending His Son to save sinners and build His Kingdom. This life extends to our families, friends, community, and throughout the nations by proclaiming the Gospel and discipleship - where saints are equipped to know God and make His glory known (Pilippians 3.8).
6. Biblical Community
We value sincere fellowhip in the Body, reflective of our Triune God and united by the Gospel. We regard others as more important than ourselves as we demonstrate our love for one another (Mark 12.30-31).
