Core Values

THIS IS THE DNA OF STONECREEK

 
YOU CAN’T DO LIFE ALONE
“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household.” Eph. 2:19
 
“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
Rom. 12:4-5
 
GROWING PEOPLE CHANGE
“Continue to grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18
 
“Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.” 1 Tim. 4:7
 
SAVED PEOPLE SERVE PEOPLE
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Pet. 4:10
 
“There are different kinds of service to God…together you form the Body of Christ and each one of you is a necessary part of it.” 1 Cor. 12:5,27
 
FOUND PEOPLE FIND PEOPLE
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
 
“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do it with gentleness and respect…” 1 Peter 3:15
 
YOU CAN’T OUT GIVE GOD
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.  You cannot serve both God and money”.  Matthew 6:24
 
God doesn’t need our money.  He owns the universe (Psalms 50:12).  He has infinite resources at His disposal and He is the ultimate giver (James 1:17).  We can’t out give God.  God has called us to tithe (Malachi 3:10-12, 2 Corinthians 9:8-11).  He just wants us to trust and obey Him by giving back a portion of what is already His.
