We, the leadership and membership of Walnut Community Bible Church, embrace these core values as being essential to the realization of our vision and purpose as a church. We accept, therefore, the responsibility to conduct our lives and the life of our church according to them, and will take seriously the responsibility to hold one another accountable to do so.
Bible Centered Teaching and Preaching:
We are committed to the clear and accurate communication of God’s Word in a way that ministers grace and acts as a catalyst for transformation in the lives of individuals and the church.
The Lordship of Jesus Christ:
We believe in Jesus Christ as the one and only Son of God as well as our only pathway to salvation. We are committed to being people who will daily seek to be more like Him, committed to bringing his Lordship to bear on every aspect of our daily lives, and committed to protecting the image and name of Jesus Christ wherever our daily lives lead us.
We believe that God desires His people to pray and that He hears and answers prayer. Therefore, the ministries and activities of this church will be characterized by a reliance on prayer in their conception, planning, and execution.
We value what God values—the souls of human beings. Beginning in our community and stretching to the far reaches of the world, we will stress through our words and our works the importance of evangelism and the Great Commission. Through our compassionate support of world missions we will work to provide for the physical needs of people with the goal of introducing them to Christ and salvation.
We believe that the church needs godly leadership to act as examples to all and trainers and mentors for others aspiring to leadership. We will hold our leaders accountable to their task.
We believe that the Spirit-filled fellowship, coming together as one, acts as an encouraging, uplifting, and necessary family of faith. We believe the church to be the primary source of accountability of its members as the vehicle for sharing and meeting the needs of its members.
