Above all, these motivators and actions are the outcome of our Biblical beliefs, our heart and passion for people, and our love of God.
We show people they are loved and highly Valued. We do this by participating in services, life groups, growth opportunities, special events, serving and intentionally building relationships and community.
We all pray for and passionately pursue the fulfillment of our vision as direction from the Lord. We do this by making sure that we all take care of the small things.
Value God's Presence
We genuinely, passionately worship God.
We serve consistently in a ministry but take time to be a community (Life Groups, etc.) In a true Christian community, you allow yourself to be known and to know people.
Building New Relationships
We invest time before and after service to interact with new or unfamiliar people. We will do our best to answer any questions they might have.
Kids House and LifeHouse Students
Kids and Youth ministries are primary, not secondary or babysitting. We are raising an army of world changers and giant slayers that are filled with the presence of God and respond to his leading. We will reach a generation before they need to be rescued. Teachers are screened, background checked and commit to be ready to love, teach and make class an exciting environment.
We represent Jesus Christ and LifeHouse both, at and away from church. We constantly strive to improve our character and competence.
Accountability is a must. It is a regular choice where we are transparent/honest to godly people who holds us accountable to grow in Christ and walk with us on our journey.
We sacrifice personal preferences to advance God’s kingdom together (e.g. parking spaces, ministry roles, comfort zones). We are the body; we will not be stuck in one ministry assignment. We will be flexible to do whatever leadership feels directed from God to place us in.
We smile, keep good eye contact and communicate to everyone with courtesy and respect (e.g. “Good morning,” “Thank you,” “I’ll be happy to” and “My pleasure”). Everyone receives many warm greetings and pleasant goodbyes.
We maintain an atmosphere of LOVE, ACCEPTANCE and FORGIVENESS. We first listen to people to understand, then we respond to be understood. We love people unconditionally, accept people where they are (understanding we are all a work in progress) and forgive people for their shortcomings, faults and failures.
Sit One, Worship One
Our goal is that every server worships one service and serves another service to ensure personal spiritual health and that they remain current on teaching, direction and experience of the Holy Spirit.
We resolve conflicts quickly and graciously with forthright communication to the appropriate individuals, not by complaining to others. We do not criticize our leaders, team, congregation, other ministers or ministries… ever! Our motto here is “stomp serpents while small.” This is done by addressing conflicts quickly with the actual person you have the conflict with, so we don’t give place to frustration and gossip.
We strive to notice – and even anticipate – the needs of others. We escort and introduce people to the right persons and places rather than pointing or directing them. We don’t walk by a piece of trash we pick it up, or if something is dirty we clean it. We have an “its my job” attitude.
We maintain a safe and accident-free environment. We attend to and report all injuries immediately to assure proper care and documentation.
We endeavor to do everything with excellence. We protect God’s resources by conserving energy and supplies and properly maintaining and securing our facilities and equipment.
We do a lot with a little and expect the impossible, because our God is always faithful!
A Thankful People
We are thankful to the Lord, even in adversity. We will not allow ourselves to forget His goodness.
We spread joy, have fun, and make things fun for others.
We sing and rejoice in the Lord at all times.
We will allow the breath of the Holy Spirit to speak to us and direct us to dream the impossible, believe the unattainable and achieve the DREAM!
Furthering God’s Kingdom
LifeHouse will be known as a Church where we Believe, Invest, Develop and Place leaders into their destiny.
