We live as a tight-knit “village” community–sharing our time, money, and families. It’s not just about what we do, but using Christ-like character to do it. We provide healing support for each other, and we believe in the serious necessity of having fun.
And He Himself gave some to be apostles (leadership), some prophets (spirituality), some evangelists (mission), and some shepherds (care) and teachers (discipleship): for the complete equipping of the saints, for (specific jobs) for service, for the construction of the body of Christ.
PROPHETIC CONFIRMATION – CARE
As you look closer at our values, you will find an amazing prophetic confirmation. God spoke to us five scriptures, all with the reference 34:10, highlighting the significance of each value.
Care/Shepherding - Ezekiel 34:10
This is what the Almighty I AM says: I am against the shepherds. I will demand that they hand over my sheep. I won’t let them take care of my sheep anymore, and they will no longer take care of only themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, and my sheep will no longer be their food.
In Ezekiel 34:10, the LORD reveals to us the importance of the shepherding/care value. God will will stand against those who fail to take care of the sheep around them.
