At The Well, our actions speak louder than words. We honor all who enter into the christian community promoting a thriving culture!
1. Sin and darkness will not be something we avoid or fear. We will not deny darkness exists, but we will not bow to it. We will love people in the midst of their darkness and sin and will continually call out the gold we see in them.
2. We are dedicated to providing a “Training Ground” for believers. We will do all we can to provide tools, teachings and a a safe environment for growth. We all must learn to crawl before we can walk.
3. Mistakes will be tolerated and treated as a teaching moment and learning experience. Although mistakes can be difficult they are part of the maturing process, people are not expected to be perfect, but are expected to grow.
4. We are focused on equipping people to come to the full stature of the image of Christ through ministering the word and the gifts of the Spirit.
5. When it comes to communication, we are committed to hearing the heart of the person regardless of the differences in communication style.
6. We are committed to loving people without judgment, forgiving others quickly, and walking in a spirit of “unoffendability”.
7. We are committed to a leadership style that has a foundation of respect and trustworthiness. When issues arise, we will address them with love as our sole focus is restoration of the individual that leaves intact their value to God and their purpose on the earth.
8. The word ( the Bible ) will be the motivation and foundation in our decision making processes.
9. We are a people committed to a lifestyle of transparency, humility, and mercy.
10. We will love everyone where they are at, but we will love them enough to give them the tools, truths, and hard discussions to spur them on to the greatness that God has for them.
11. We are committed to demonstrating a love that is Christ centered, from a standpoint of the finished work of the cross.
12. We hold with high regard the ministry of reconciliation the Lord has given us. (2 Corinthians 5:16-21). We will be mindful in all of our interactions with people that we are called to love people where they are at, to introduce them, and in some cases reintroduce them to the heart of God.
13. We believe a Culture of Honor is an environment that is saturated with grace. A Culture of Honor is never built around “What I need”; it is built around “What I can give”. If we do not learn to give to those who deserve it the least, we will continue to live in an environment without honor.
