Our Core Values are the guiding principles by which our culture thrives. Jesus demonstrated a vertical Love connection with the Father and a horizontal Love connection to humanity. We have four Core Values: Presence, Empowerment, Transformation and Love.
Presence – Because Jesus has eliminated separation from the Father, experiencing the presence of God is about having a heart-to-heart connection where we can know Him and are known by Him. In turn, we can have heart-to-heart connections with the people around us, being fully present in each relationship and allowing ourselves to know and be known by others. We passionately desire more of God’s dynamic, manifest presence in our lives individually and in our corporate life together. We want to be intentional about fostering a revival culture that impacts precious lives in the church, our city, region and nation.
Empowerment – The Bible outlines that as Christians, we are a new creation in Christ. Therefore, we are empowered by His Spirit to walk in the fullness of all He has for us and have been given the authority to partner with Him in bringing His Kingdom to earth. We are enabled to build strong and authentic relationships as a community and can help empower each other to walk out our God-given callings.
Transformation – We value seeing hearts and lives transformed! We can see radical transformation in our lives by having deep intimacy with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. When we allow our hearts to be wide open to the Lord, we are changed from the inside out by His love and leading. He has also designed us to be transformed by meaningful and safe relationships, being able to be accountable to one another and to learn and grow in vulnerability as we journey together.
Love – God very clearly outlines the basis of “love” in the Bible in verses like “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son…” (John 3:16) and “God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 5:5). He also gives the Great Commandment to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind” and the second like it to “Love your neighbour as yourself”. At Jubilee, we aim to embody these love commandments in all that we do, loving the Lord first and foremost and then through the overflow of a love relationship with our Creator, we can love each other and the people around us as He has first loved us.
