CORE VALUES

Our core values are the underlying principles that guide us in making decisions, determining priorities, setting goals, allocating resources and carrying out programs.  They are the defining characteristics of Heart of the Father Church that are emphasized and highlighted in all we do. They are drawn from biblical teachings.

Tenet:  There are two directives of Jesus that we lean on for our values.  The great command requires us to love God, love others and love ourselves.  The great commission requires that we win souls, connect followers, disciple and send out leaders who are immersed in all aspects of the Trinity.  

AccordinglyÖ

  • We value hearing Godís Voice

Every follower of Jesus is designed to communicate with God. God speaks to us through a variety of means. Our response is to in turn talk to God through prayer and learn to be a doer of the revelations of God. (John 10:3-4, Hebrews 1:1-2, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, James 1:22)

  • We value knowing God as Father

Experiencing God as Father just like Jesus did will change our life. Every child of God needs to feel, know, and experience the unconditional, extravagant love of Father God. (John 14:6-13, Luke 15:11-32, Romans 8:35-38)

  • We value healing lifeís hurts

Before we can truly love others, we must love ourselves and that means allowing the Spirit of God to transform our spirit, soul and body. Our Father is able to reveal to us issues & hurts that need healing. The Holy Spirit knows what we need to believe and receive in order to become whole. (2 Corinthians 7:1, 2 Corinthians 3:18, John 16:14, John 15:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:23)

  • We value empowering in the anointing

The anointing allows us to see breakthroughs from poverty, brokenness, health issues, oppression from the demonic, and takes us into incredible favour. We desire for everyone to receive these breakthroughs and then to release the anointing to others. (Luke 4:16-21, Luke 9:1-6, Luke 10:1-9)

  • We value multiplication of leaders

Everyone can be a person of influence, a leader, and a world changer. As we hear God, receive His unconditional love, deal with issues from our past and present, and receive His anointing, we then become more like Jesus in character, anointing and authority, and in turn, give it away. (Matthew 9:35-38, Matthew 28:16-20, 2 Timothy 2:2)

FOUR PRIMARY GOALS

1.     To welcome and respond to the Holy Spirit.
