Core Values

 

Interdependence

As part of the Body of Christ, all people are equally valued and contribute to the mutual growth and wellness of the entire Body (1 Corinthians 12:12-27, Romans 12:5).

 

Prayer

We are completely dependent on the power of God to see the fulfillment of our vision, to care for one another and to seek God’s wisdom and direction. (Philippians 4:6-7).

 

Sanctity of Life

Since all life exists for God’s purposes and all human lives are equally sacred, we believe that every life is blessed by God and must be preserved and nurtured. (Jeremiah 1:5)

 

Self-Advocacy

Each person is empowered to make decisions about their own life and contribute to their community. The phrase “Nothing About us Without Us” shapes our actions. (Philippians 4:13).

 

Inclusion

People with disabilities are full citizens in community where they experience inclusion and belonging (1 Corinthians 12).

 

Valuing Relationships

People with disabilities, families, staff, volunteers and all our community partners will enjoy meaningful relationships built on trust and respect (John 13:34).

 

Stewardship

We are responsible to care for and grow the resources God has entrusted to us (1 Peter 4:10).
