We choose to partner with local churches that aspire to these ministry values

GOSPEL FLUENCY

This value informs our MESSAGE.

The Gospel is the language of Christianity. We must know it, repeat it and speak it to others and ourselves, for the purpose of both conversion and growth.
 

This value informs our MISSION.

The Gospel is the proclamation of God’s great rescue plan. We have the honor of joining in with a sending God.
 

This value informs our MOTIVATION.

The Gospel tells us we can be fully approved of and accepted by God only because of the person and work of Jesus Christ. We do not serve to earn and we do not grow in our own strength. We rest and rejoice in the Gospel.

SPIRIT DEPENDENCY

This value informs our PURPOSE.

We are to be people of the Spirit. We must be Spirit-led and reliant on the Holy Spirit to shape our community.

This value informs our POWER.

We need the Spirit for power to live on mission and to bear witness to Jesus’ work in our hearts. We rely on the Holy Spirit to empower us to be faithful in our spiritual disciplines and to enable all true spiritual activity and growth.

This value informs our PASSION.

As the Spirit reveals the person and work of Jesus Christ to our hearts, we respond by directing our energy and our emotions to celebrate His goodness. All expressions of passion are rooted in Scripture and directed by the Holy Spirit.

BIBLICAL COMMUNITY

This value informs our IDENTITY.

We are “in Christ”. He is the head and we are the body. We each have a part to play and that we need one another. There are no lesser parts.

This value informs our IMAGE.

We have been created in the image of a triune God; God has always existed in relationship. We have been created for relationship.

This value informs our INTENT.

We have been called to build one another up and to speak the truth in love to one another. We are committed to sharing life and loving each other for Jesus’ sake.
 

We share these values with our sending partner, New York Youth Ministries.
