UNITY

 
How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!
— Psalm 133:1

Unity is the quality of being fused into one. At Living Waters, we practice a team approach to ministry, problem solving, and decision-making, while operating within the integrity of our structure at all times. Relationships are first priority, and we deal with disagreements and offenses in a timely and Biblical manner.

 
 

GENEROSITY

 
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, but whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
— 2 Corinthians 9:6

Generosity is the quality of being kind, understanding, and unselfish, especially regarding a willingness to give away valuable possessions or money. We are committed to seeking out opportunities to generously share what God has so generously given us.

 
 

SERVING

 
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
— 1 Peter 4:10

God has called us to demonstrate an attitude of servanthood; therefore the functions of administration are to serve and facilitate ministry. Policies exist to enable ministry to function with effective and predictable results.

 
 

EXCELLENCE

 
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.
— Ecclesiastes 9:10

Excellence is doing the very best with what you have. We are committed to giving careful attention to every task we carry out, no matter the size. Our excellence is guided by our desire to show Christ’s love in each detail, whether task or relationally driven.

 
 

SCRIPTURE CENTERED

 
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.
— 2 Timothy 3:16-17

We are committed to being fully grounded in scripture and fully empowered by the Holy Spirit.  The Bible is our final authority, and the Holy Spirit guides and helps us fulfill God’s destiny for us as a church.
