One of the most important questions that any local church can ask itself is: Who are we? In other words, what do we value as a local body of believers? The question of core values is exceedingly important because core values determine a church’s thrust, and direction, or lack of the same.
A church’s core values may be selfish, sinful, and harmful to the church’s continued existence, or they can be biblical, positive, and pro-active. Core values influence a church’s decision making, problem solving, risk-taking, task setting, team building, and the allocation of time, personal finances, and resources.
Therefore, the leadership of Battle Ground Bible Church has identified and highlighted eight core values that drive everything that our local body does and aspires to. We call these core values “The Pillars of Our Ministry.”
TRUTH we are devoted to proclaiming the truth with boldness (2 Tim.4:2).
LEADERSHIP we are devoted to developing broad godly leadership (Eph.4:11-12).
REPLICATION we are devoted to replicating like-minded sister churches.
These are “The Pillars of Our Ministry.” Battle Ground Bible Church believes that every created being has been made to worship and exalt its Creator. And so in light of that truth, we as a local body are devoted to Building a Community of Worshipers with a Passion for God and Compassion for People in Our Community and around the World.
