Foundations – Mission & Culture 2024-02-01T16:33:30-05:00


Our mission is to disciple people towards a greater love for and faithfulness to God for His glory. 

We aim to catalyze a multiplying passion for the honoring of God’s name, propelling His mission to bring all nations under the authority of Jesus so that all people would love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind.


We co-labor with Christ, under His authority, empowered by His Spirit. Because of this, our labor together is marked by a certain culture with certain values:

  1. God’s Word is our foundation. We esteem and herald His Word above every other word. We feast upon it, meditate on it, and obey it.  (Matt 4:4; Heb 4:12; 2 Tim 3:16-17; Ps 19; Col 3:16; James 1:22)
  2. We love, worship, and follow God above everything else through Christ by the power of the Spirit. Jesus is the epicenter around which our life and ministry revolve. (Matt 22:37; Matt 15: 8-9; Luke 24: 27; Col 1:15-23; Psalm 34:1-3)
  3. Our identity is in Christ. Our worth is in simply being His, not in our skill, position, or role. We’re unfinished, but we rest in the finished work of Jesus. (Eph 1: 1-14; Eph 2:1-10; Col 1:21-22; Phil 1:6)
  4. We’re servants, not stars. We strive for fruitful faithfulness, not fame. Jesus, not us, is to be exalted. (Phil 2:3-11; John 3:30; Prov 16:18)
  5. Leadership is service, not status. We lead from and in the trenches with dirty fingernails, not on pedestals. (Matt 20:26-28; John 13:1-17; 1 Cor 4:1-2)
  6. Relationship over rivalry. We’re co-laborers, not competitors, for the glory of God. We celebrate the wisdom of God in placing us on mission together.  (Rom 12: 3-8; Eph 4:1-7; Eph 2:11-22)
  7. Character trumps competence. Who we are matters more than what we do. (1 Pet 1:13-16; Titus 2:7; 1 Tim 3:1-13)
  8. We pursue undistracting excellence in our skill and character for the glory of God. (Col 3:23-24; 1 Cor 10:31; Ex 25-28; Ps 33:3; 2 Pet 1:5-8)
  9. Our gifts are our cross, not our platform. We relinquish them for the glory of God and the blessing of His church. (Eph 4:7-16; Rom 12:3-8; Matt 25:14-30)
  10. “Success” is defined by faithfulness to Christ, not by the applause or criticism of man.(1 Cor 4:1-5; Matt 25:21)
