CORE VALUES
 
OUR PRIMARY FUNCTION, SERVICE, FELLOWSHIP, WORSHIP, AND VALUES ARE SIMPLY ROOTED IN THE FOLLOWING:
 

1. ACCOUNTABILITY
We must put our mission on the pillars of these values. When we work with one another everything we do must answer to one of these values. The hope in doing this is to examine where we are, and create a simple method to test our efforts in being Biblical in our thinking, actions, and words. We must hold this and all values in both TRUTH and in LOVE. (Proverbs 27:17; Galatians 6:2; James 5:16; Hebrews 10:25)

2. GENEROSITY & HOSPITALITY
Our lives in and around our church will hold ourselves to the standard of Jesus. Knowing we will fall short and yet keep pressing to be more like Jesus tomorrow than we are today. The differences of others will not hinder our desire to be like Christ in the love and care of others. (2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 4:32; 1 John 4:7; 1 Peter 3:8)

3. EVANGELISM
Grove Park members will be a people who are not afraid of proclaiming The Gospel of Christ to those around them. Regardless of where you are, preach the Gospel in both TRUTH and LOVE. (Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 1:16; Acts 13:47; Acts 20:24)

4. COMMUNITY & MULTIPLICATION

We were not created for isolation. Wherever we are placed by the hands of God himself, is the place we will build friendships, families, and the church. We are the light of the world. Being salt and light in the world we live in is not negotiable according to God. (Matthew 5:13-16; Psalm 133:1; 1 John 1:7; Acts 2:46-47)
