Core Values/Vision/Mission Statement/Motto

Core Values

1. Scripturally-based preaching and teaching.  We believe that scripture is our absolute truth and the standard by which we live. We believe the meaning of scripture is what the original author under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit intended to say the original audience in the original context. We must ascertain the timeless principle and apply it to our context. There can be many applications of scripture.

2. The Great Commission (including both evangelism and discipleship/spiritual growth). We believe making disciples in not just putting ourselves in a position to share the gospel, not just sharing the gospel, but baptizing and teaching others to become fully devoted followers of Jesus who (1) can reproduce themselves spiritually, (2) disciple those they win to the Lord, and (3) become more and more like Christ everyday

3. People and relationships matter

4. Kids and youth are of upmost importance

5. We should bathe everything in prayer

6. We need to be good financial stewards of God’s resources and we will not go in debt

7.  We should be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community in practical ways as we serve and build relationships with others           

Two aspirational values (things in which we must improve):

1. Developing and empowering leaders

2. Striving for excellence in everything we do

 

Vision

We envision a day in the year 2026 when the city of Rogue River, OR has become so transformed by the gospel (as people come to know Christ and make Him known) that it results in the following:

1) Suicides in Jackson County will drop to less than 5 per year 

2) Unemployment rate goes from more than 8% to less than 4%

3) Police see measures of crime drop by 75% in each category

4) Our public schools test scores are ranked in the top 10% in the State of Oregon

5) Businesses are seeking to relocate to the Rogue River area because it is such a wonderful place to live

6) drug addiction is virtually nonexistent in Wimer and Rogue River, OR

7) A nationwide spiritual awakening begins in Rogue River, OR and expands throughout our nation and beyond
