There are six values that are derived from our Mission / Vision statement that have become part of our DNA as a church. Each value we see in scripture and as a characteristic of a follower of Jesus Christ.
"And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with ALL your heart and with ALL your soul and with ALL your mind and with ALL your strength.”
- Mark 12:28-30
Therefore at Radiant Church we are:
Faith in Jesus Christ is all-consuming. We will not withhold any area of our life from God’s control. We willingly, humbly, and joyfully submit and surrender to him as the King of our life.
Jesus said in John 14:15, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. It is only after we have surrendered to God as king that we will love him by obeying his commands. Therefore at Radiant Church we seek to love God by being obedient to his commands
And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?"
- Luke 9:23-25
At Radiant Church we value:
At Radiant Church we seek to be faith-filled, big thinking, bet-it-all, risk takers in our pursuit of Christ because following him demands radical obedience.
Jesus said in John 14:7, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” It is our desire to faithfully challenge ourselves with his truth, preach his truth in love, and live out his truth in our lives.
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
- Matthew 5:14-16
At Radiant Church we are:
God is light, Jesus was the light that came to earth, belief in the gospel is what turns the light on inside of us allowing us to be the light of Christ to the world. Everything we do at Radiant Church has the gospel at its core, for it is the power of God for salvation to all who believe. There is no plan “b”.
Jesus came to earth to bring glory to his Father by seeking and saving the lost, making disciples, and building his church to do the same. Therefore at Radiant Church we are committed to Christ's mission: Making disciples / Equipping Leaders / Advancing the Kingdom. Practically we seek out those who do not know Jesus, we share the gospel, and we serve the world!
