Our Core Values

At Spring Hills, our mission is to build generations for Jesus Christ as we love, live, and lead like Jesus.
As a church, there are specific core values that guide and shape who we are and what we believe.

1. Authentic Worship
We deeply value a lifestyle of worship that authentically flows from our hearts and not just our lips. We also value worship services that exalt and glorify Jesus Christ alone. We desire to fix our eyes on Jesus Christ as we worship Him. (John 4:23-24)

2. Absolute Truth
We openly and publicly acknowledge that God’s Word is truth, it
is the absolute truth that we desire to preach, know and live out. We also desire that our relationships are bound in the trust that is formed by people who share the absolute truth. (John 17:17)

3. Discipleship Relationships
The great commission calls us to make disciples. We value relationships that focus on maturing in Christ and making disciples. We believe discipleship happens best in the context of a relationship and as a congregation we acknowledge our need for accountable, transparent, discipleship relationships. (Matthew 28:19-20)

4. Effective Service  
Christians are called to serve, and we value service in God’s kingdom that is sacrificial, strategic and effective. We believe all Christians are called to serve with their spiritual gifts and as members of one body we are called to serve each other. (1 John 3:18)

5. Continual Prayer
We value prayer, and seek to pray continually. Everything we do as a Church must be shielded and empowered by prayer. Through prayer we discover the heart of God. (1 Thess. 5:17)

6. Radical Obedience  
We can only begin to live like Jesus as we follow His model of radical obedience. We value obedience to God’s Word and believe that as we obey Christ, we open the doors of His blessing in our lives, in our Church, and in the World. (Romans 6:17)

7. Family Focused
We value families. God himself designed the family as the primary place for development and growth. Healthy families provide the
foundation for a healthy generation. In Christ we become part of God’s family and live as brothers and sisters in Christ. (Col. 3:18-21)

8. Holy Spirit Led  
Our desire as Children of God is to be led by the Holy Spirit. We joyfully acknowledge that we are gifted and empowered by the Holy Spirit, and seek to deny our flesh and live in the Spirit. (Romans 8:14)

9. Wholeness & Healing
We value the healing that God brings to lives that have been broken as a result of sin and the pattern of this world. We value supernatural healing of bodies, minds, and hearts in the Holy Spirit. God’s desire is that we would be made whole as we overcome our hurts, habits and hang-ups. (Luke 4:18-19)

10. Mission Minded  
Jesus gave us our mission; to make disciples. Our desire is to remain focused on the mission He gave us as we share the gospel with those in our church, our nation and the world. (2 Cor. 5:20)
