God’s Providence – The source of our provision.
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. (Psalm 127:1)
God’s Word – The guide for all we do.
All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (II Timothy 3:16-17)
God’s Mission – The duty of every believer.
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20)
The Friends We Serve.
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. (I Timothy 6:17-19)
The Team God Has Assembled.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. (I Corinthians 12:27)
The Seminary We Support.
The things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.
(II Timothy 2:1-2)
Work That is Ministry – Our objective is to serve.
Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account. (Philippians 4:17)
Work That is Disciplined – Our aim is to excel.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters…It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Work That is Joyful – Our privilege is to live abundantly.
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)
