The Rocky Mountain region is made up of a variety of cultures, each with its own unique characteristics. There is, however, a Christ-centered, Bible-based spiritual culture shared by God’s people which we express through these common values:
Spiritually dynamic -glorifying God in all we do, trusting in the authority of his Word, the sufficiency of his Son, the power of the Holy Spirit and his delight in prevailing prayer.
Transformational- believing that the power of God’s Spirit will bring Christ-like change to our lives, our churches and our communities. “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
Healthy - prioritizing “being” over “doing” in the lives of our pastors and congregations. “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
Relationally devoted -displaying Christ’s love in our relationships and ministry partnerships, expressing his compassion, generosity and his irenic spirit.
Culturally diverse - advancing Christ’s destiny for his church—a church that reflects the beauty and synergy of worshipers from all peoples and cultures. “Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth--to every nation, tribe, language and people.” Revelation 14:6
Missionally driven - multiplying transformational leaders and churches, reproducing the life of Christ in disciples, leaders and congregations worldwide. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” Matthew 28:19
Generous - freely sharing God’s goodness with others. “You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:11
