Our core values
Poor in spirit
The first and foundational character of a Friend is the realization that we are poor. We acknowledge that all we are and have belong to God. We are simply stewards of God's resources. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 5:3)
Obedient to the Word of God
We seek to live out what we hear in God's word, and submit ourselves to its authority. We also seek the accountability of the Body of Christ, to help us better understand and follow God’s word. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. (Jn 15:10)
We strive to work and live in unity with those near and far, those who are like and unlike us, as those who have been reconciled not only to God, but to each other. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. (Jn 17:23)
Engaged in investing in people
Just as Jesus called us friends and not servants, we prioritize investing in people as friends and not using them as servants. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know the master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. (Jn 15:15)
As friends, we seek to be aligned with God’s purposes for the world, our communities, and ourselves. We seek God’s righteousness by pursuing integrity in all our good works. What good will it be for you to gain the whole world, yet forfeit your soul? (Mt 16:26a)
