LCC CORE VALUES MISSION In Ranked Order Lancaster Christian Church exists to show people how to follow Jesus every day. (Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 9:23) 1. Biblical Authority We hold a high view of Scripture and accept its final authority in the life and practice of the church. In matters of faith, we are unified. (Leviticus 18:4; Psalm 119:160; Luke 9:11; Acts 17:11; Romans 8:7; 10:3; 15:4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; James 4:7; 2 Peter 1:20-21) 2. Prayerful Dependence We seek God in all things. We ask God to do His work in transforming lives by His Spirit. We also depend on God for ample resources of people, facilities, and finances to fulfill our mission and vision. (Nehemiah 1:1-2:8; Psalm 105:1-4; Matthew 6:5-13; Luke 5:16; 11:1-4; Acts 1:14; 6:4; Romans 9:16; 12:12; etc.) 3. Excellent Ministry We do all things well to give God glory. We give God our first and our best, not our leftovers. What we do, we do well. All members are equipped for service according to the gifts God has given them. (Nehemiah 10:35; Proverbs 3:9; Romans 12:1; 1 Corinthians 10:31; Ephesians 4:11-16; Hebrews 13:20-21) 4. Growth Environments We create healthy environments through relationships and programs to encourage and nurture holistic spiritual growth. We treat all people with love as they are made in God’s image and need redeemed by Christ’s work. (Genesis 1:26-27; Ezra 7:10; Nehemiah 8-10; Mark 12:32-34; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Galatians 5:22-6:10; Colossians 1:9-14, 28; 3:10-17; 2 Timothy 3:14-17) 5. Kingdom Collaboration We work with other churches and Christian organizations to accomplish our mission. We also do this to demonstrate our unity in Christ and the truth. Though we are not the only Christians, we are Christians only. (John 17:17-23; Philippians 1:27; 2:2) VISION We are a holy people who study God’s word, submit to God’s will, and serve in the church and the world. Each member participates every week in one hour of group study, one hour of corporate worship, and one hour of service (in the church or to the world). (Mark 12:33; Acts 17:10-12; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 1 Peter 2:9-10) CONGREGATIONAL GOAL 24x24 By January 1, 2024, we will have 24 new or reactivated members who live our mission and demonstrate significant progress in exhibiting our vision and values. We Show People How to Follow Jesus Every Day
