10 Core Values @ Grey Stone


Values shape culture and they define the future. 
Below, you’ll find 10 Core values of what matters most at Grey Stone.
These values influence leadership decisions as well as ministry plans.
They provide guidance for staffing, resource allocation, and establishing the Kingdom goals our church pursues.
Our core values keep us focused on the unique call God has given to us as a local church. 

1. We believe biblical teaching is the catalyst for personal and church transformation. 

This involves the concept of teaching for life change and practical theology.

(2 Tim. 3:16-17; James 1:23-25; Rom. 12:7).

2. We believe lost people matter to God, and therefore, they matter to the church.

This includes the concept of relational evangelism.

(Luke 15; Luke 5:30-32; 2 Peter3:9).

3. We believe in the importance of family.

Recognizing that one of the greatest strategies of Satan is the destruction of the home, we are committed to strengthening the lives of families.

(Eph. 5:25-6:4; Psalm 127:1; Col 3:18-21).

4. We believe we are called to reach out to the nations from one centralized location.

This includes being financially supportive of full-time missionaries, assisting to plant churches around the world, and mobilizing our members for short term mission projects.

(Matt.28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 2 Corin. 5:20).

5. We believe a posture of love and compassion for the most vulnerable is essential to following Jesus.

This includes compassionate care and the alleviation of suffering for the poor, sick, disabled, widows and orphans.

(Luke 10:30-37; Matt. 25:34-40; James 1:27).

6. We believe the church should operate as a community of humble servants, with each person utilizing their spiritual gifts and talents for the glory of God.

(John 13:3-15; 1 Corin. 12 and 14; Eph. 4:11-16).

7. We believe the church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure.

This includes addressing relevant subjects and having relevant ministries so we can represent the truth in love to our culture.

(1 Corin. 9:19-23; Jude 1:3; Rom. 1:16).

8. We believe excellence honors God and inspires people.

This includes the ministries we establish, the facilities we manage, and the Kingdom goals we pursue.

(Col. 3:17; 1 Corin. 10:31; Malachi 1:6-14).

9. We believe an environment of loving relationships and grace should permeate every aspect of church life.

This includes being motivated to serve by love, and providing grace filled responses in our interactions with each other.

( 1 Corin. 13; Luke 10:1; John 13:35).

10. We believe the ultimate purpose of our ministry is to lead people to be fully devoted followers of Christ. 

This involves the concepts of stewardship, Lordship, servanthood, and visionary faith.

(Philippians 2:5-8; 2 Corin. 8:7; Heb. 11:6)
