Our next core value is: We Are Free and Responsible!
We are completely free in Christ! Free from sin. Free from shame. Free from fear. Free from death. Jesus Himself purchased our freedom and we are now able to live completely free! Free to love, free to serve, free to honor, free to rejoice! Our freedom is glorious and full! It is freedom from something (fear, shame, death, sin) to something (love, joy, honor, servanthood and so much more)! Our freedom is not self-centered or self-seeking. Our freedom and our responsible are inseparable!
As beloved children of our Heavenly Father, it is our joy to cooperate with His Holy Spirit to produce the fruit of self-control in our lives. We are responsible both to the Lord and to each other as we grow in our relationships and character.
