At Access Church, we have defined certain values which guide us as we pursue our mission to lead people into growing relationships with Jesus Christ.
Biblical Authority—God has spoken to us through the Bible and we recognize it as the final authority for our lives. So first we ask, “Are our priorities consistent with scripture?”
Intimacy with God—God desires an intimate relationship with each of us. So we ask, “Are our relationships with God growing?”
Relevant Environments—Every environment should be designed to effectively connect with its target audience. So we ask, “Are our environments appealing, engaging, and helpful?”
Relational Evangelism—God’s message of forgiveness through Christ is most effectively conveyed within the context of personal relationships. So we ask, “In whom am I investing?”
Authentic Community—Accountability, belonging, care and spiritual growth happen best with relationally-connected believers. So we ask, “Am I in a small group?”
Strategic Service—Our spiritual gifts have maximum impact when exercised in support of our strategy. So we ask, “Where am I serving?”
Intentional Apprenticing—We are responsible to pass along to others the knowledge, skills and opportunities that have been entrusted to us. So we ask, “Who am I apprenticing?”
How are we doing?
