Team Member Leadership Commitment Application

Step 1 of 4

Every leader commits themselves to a set of standards whether they are subconscious or conscious. At Grace we seek to follow the following standards:
  • Foundational Principle

    Our lives, not just our words, are our witness to the world of the hope we have in Christ. The lifestyles we choose to live serves as a representation of what we truly believe. Therefore, who we are at church and who we are elsewhere should not contradict each other. The goal of a Christ-follower is not perfection, rather, the goal is in following Christ we allow Him to shape our life. We don’t expect that you never make a mistake concerning the items below. Rather we expect that you are honest and teachable when you do make a mistake. We are a restoring church meaning we work with people who have made mistakes if they are willing to grow. Staff and team members alike will be teachable, submitting to God’s word as the final authority. We exist to create safe communities where imperfect people grow. By seeking to follow the commitments below we will help to establish these communities.

    Col. 3:23, 24 – Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men . . . It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

    1 Cor. 8:9 – Be careful, however that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.

    2 Cor. 6:3 – We put no stumbling block in anyone’s path, so that our ministry will not be discredited.

    1 Timothy 3:1 – if anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. the overseer must be above reproach.

    *I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and I want to live my life for Him.
