OPEN SKIES VALUES

HERE ARE OUR VALUES ACROSS ALL OUR CAMPUSES

Worship: First and foremost to be worshippers in Spirit and in Truth, and that everything we say and do gives glory to His Name. Our corporate worship will be according to the principles and patterns of David’s Tabernacle for he was known as a man after God’s own heart. True Spirit-led worship is costly and requires generosity and an extravagant, submitted heart.
John 4:23-24; Mark 14:3-9; Luke 7:36-50; 1 Chronicles 15:16; 16:29; Psalm 149; Psalm 150

Excellence: God does nothing half-heartedly but is a God of excellence and so should we be. He has gifted us with skills and abilities and so He deserves our very best. Therefore we will pursue excellence in all we do, think and say. We seek to excel for the edification of the Church.

Psalm 139:14; Psalm 33:3; 1 Corinthians 14:12; Philippians 1:10; 4:8; Isaiah 12:5; Daniel 6:3; 1 Chronicles 15:22; 2 Chronicles 34:12-13; Matthew 25:15-30; Romans 12:11

Servant Heart: Every believer is called to serve according to his/her gifts. Our attitude should be that of Jesus Christ who came to serve and not to be served. This will require us to walk in humility, considering others more highly ourselves and being in mutual submission to one another.

Matthew 18:1-4; 20:25-28; Philippians 2:3-8; Acts 20:19; Ephesians 5:21; 1 Peter 4:10; Psalm 78:72

Truth: The Word of God is our highest authority by which we will be judged and held accountable. We desire to be a community of believers who are rooted and established in the Word of God. This means we must know and study the Word in order to come to a knowledge of the Truth. God desires that we have Truth in our inward parts. This demands telling the truth and being honest, and walking in integrity and transparency. We are to be doers of the Word and not hearers only.
John 12:48, 17:14,17, 8:31-32; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Colossians 1:27-28, 3:16; Psalm 51:6, 15:2, 119:160; Hebrews 4:12-13; Ephesians 4:25, 5:8-13; James 1:22, 25.

Love: Above all we are a family who love God with all our hearts, souls and minds and who will love each other deeply. Our love is manifest in obedience, generosity, acts of giving and service, faithfulness, loyalty, kindness and mutual respect and equality. We are to pursue peace with all men and to make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit.

Matthew 22:37-38; 1 Peter 4:8; 1 Corinthians 13:1-7; Romans 12:9-10; Ephesians 4:3, 5:2; 1 John 3:16; 2 John 6
