BEHIND THE CODE
At Love City our beliefs drive our vision, our expectations set our behaviors, and our Code shapes our language.
Our values revolve around the importance of engaging people with the life changing message of the gospel. Shared values keep our vision clear and develop and unified sense of commitment. Our Code is the "how" in how we do ministry. It drives the decisions we make at both the corporate and individual levels. It steers conversations and answers questions. The Code is an attitude that keeps us focused on the vision.
#1: JESUS IS THE CENTER
It's about integrated priorities and remaining united under one vision. We will point people to Jesus and get out of the way.
#2: WE HONOR ONE ANOTHER TO GLORIFY GOD
It's about valuing people. We freely give honor to those above us, beside us, and under us because of the calling and potential God has placed inside them.
#3: WE BELIEVE BIG AND START SMALL
It's about structuring for where we want to go, not where we are.
#4: WE STEP OUT OF THE BOAT
It's about overreacting with audacious faith. We will remain on the edge of our momentum by going above and beyond what is necessary.
#5: WE ARE CONTRIBUTORS, NOT CONSUMERS
It's about active participation and generosity, not personal preferences.
#6: WE THINK INSIDE THE BOX
It's about focused excellence. We will capitalize on what we are great at. Better to do three things with excellence than a million things with mediocrity.
#7: WE DON'T MAINTAIN, WE MULTIPLY
It's about ongoing growth. We are all about the numbers. We are fishers of men, not keepers of an aquarium.
#8: WE EAT THE FISH AND LEAVE THE BONES
It's about maintaining a posture of learning. We will have teachable hearts and selfless attitudes.
#9: WE WANT TO BE KNOWN FOR WHAT WE ARE FOR
It's about speaking life and lifting up the salvation of Jesus. Rather than using our platform to condemn, we will teach truth with unconditional love.
#10: WE WILL NOT TAKE THIS FOR GRANTED
IT'S ABOUT EXPRESSING GRATITUDE. WHAT WE ARE EXPERIENCING IS NOT NORMAL.
