[Ephesians 2:10]

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”


  1. Biblically Centered


[Joshua 1:7-8]

“ Be strong, and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then he will be successful and everything you do. Study this book of instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure it will be everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed, and all you do.”


[Psalm 119:105]

“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”



[Hebrew 4:12-13]

“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest, two edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. Exposes are innermost, thoughts and desires. Nothing at all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.”


2. Outwardly Focused


[Luke 19:10]

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”



[Mark 1:17]

“Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”



3. Radical Generosity



[James 1:17]

“Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father…”



[Deuteronomy 8:17]

“He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy’. Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you the power to be successful…”



4. Personally Involved


[Galatians 6:2]

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”


[1 John 3:17]

“If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?”
