Core Values

The number one force that will shape our culture at Meadows Church is our values.   What we value determines what we do.  These are our seven core values:

1: The Word

The Bible is our authority.  It is God’s love-letter written to us. We read it, love it, and live it.

“Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”
Psalm 119-105

2: Lost People

We will do whatever it takes to lead someone to Christ!  

As long as there is one lost person in our community, we will never stop reaching out with the love of Christ.

For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
Luke 19:10

As long as there is one lost person in our community we will never stop reaching out with the love of Christ.

3: Welcome

All are welcome at Meadows, regardless of where you’ve been, what you’ve done, or what’s been done to you.  We don’t care what you wear (just wear something!)   Welcome Home!

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

4: Family

Meadows is a church that is a family

We value relationships and believe in doing life together.  We may be dysfunctional however we put the FUN in dysfunctional because we believe the local church should look less like a funeral and more like a party because we have something to celebrate!

All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer”
Acts 2:42

Church should look less like a funeral and more like a party because we have something to celebrate!

5: Excellence

Everything we do, we do well!  We set the bar high and aim even higher. 

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
Colossians 3:22-23

6: Risk

We are risk-takers. We believe high-risk = high-reward because faithfulness is not holding the fort; faithfulness is storming the gates of hell and taking back enemy territory that belongs to God! 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.”
Proverbs 3:5

Faithfulness is storming the gates of hell and taking back enemy territory that belongs to God!

7: Growth

We Never Stop Growing – both individually and as a family and growing people change.  We ALL have a next step!

“But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.  No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead”
Philippians 3:12-13
