Our Core Values

 
 

Our Mission Statement

 
Knowing Christ,   

                        Growing Together,

                                Making a Difference for Eternity

This easy to remember statement is the driving force behind all we do here at Isaiah's Call. We want to make sure that everyone comes to know Christ as Savior and Lord. We believe that knowledge must be followed by a commitment to grow to spiritual maturity and then lived out in a life that is intended to glorify Christ and make a difference for the eternal well being of all we meet.

Our Core Values

We have identified the following values as the unchangeable core convictions of Isaiah's Call. These values represent who we are and what we believe.

 1. Knowing God: It is our desire that we seek to know God in a personal and intimate love relationship, that acknowledges Gods sovereignty over our lives and accepting Christ as Lord and Savior. (Matt 6:33; Philippians 3:8)

2. The Bible is our sole authority: We recognize the Bible as the inspired, infallible Word of God and it is the standard and guide by which we live our lives.   We will use up to date and culturally relevant mediums to communicate the biblical message. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-212; Psalm 119:105)

3. Prayer:  God commands that His house be a house of prayer and He places a burden on our hearts to pray for the needs of others. Prayer is the way we carry our concerns, our hopes, our dreams, and our love to the Heavenly Father. God always answers prayer.  (1 Thess. 5:17; Matt. 21:22; Acts 2:42; 4:23-31; Col. 4:2)

4. Love and Acceptance: We believe that God has called us together as a family and in so doing has commanded that love and acceptance are the qualities by which we bind our relationship to God and each other. We are to accept people for who they are and not who we want them to be. (John 13: 34-35; Gal. 6:1-2; Eph. 4:25-32, Hebrews 3:12-14; 10:25)

5. Reaching people for Christ: We have a "great Commission" from Christ to carry the Gospel through the world. We must share His love with all we come in contact with and make outreach a major commitment in our lives. We will do whatever it takes to reach people for Christ within biblical parameters.  Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; John 3:16)

6. Commitment and Discipleship: To be a fully devoted follower of Christ should be the goal of every believer. We are to strive to live a Spirit led and Spirit filled life and make every effort to help people grow in spiritual maturity. (Romans 12:1-2; Luke 9:23; 2 Cor. 8:6-7, Eph. 5:18)

7. Missions:  We will go out and meet people where they are-to help bring them into a right relationship with Jesus Christ. We recognize that every believer is a minister and has been gifted by God. We are to use those gifts to serve the Lord in some area of ministry. We are committed to involvement in missions outreach in our local community, state, country, and around the world. (Luke 14:21-23; 1 Cor. 12; Romans 12:3-8; Eph. 4:7-13; 1 Peter 4:10-11)
