The last couple of days, I have talked about a couple of Mountain Lake's Ministry Team values. These values govern how we relate to each other as a team. Our core team values are:
1 John 4:11 (NLT) 11Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.
Proverbs 27:17 (NLT) 17As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend.
Ephesians 4:16 (NLT) 16Under his direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.
John 1:9 (NLT) 9I sent a brief letter
to the church about this, but Diotrephes, who loves to be the leader, does not
acknowledge our authority.
1 Peter 5:5 (NLT) 5You younger men, accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, serve each other in humility, for “God sets himself against the proud, but he shows favor to the humble.”
Colossians 3:17 (NLT) 17And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus, all the while giving thanks through him to God the Father.
Matthew 5:37 (NLT) 37Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Your word is enough. To strengthen your promise with a vow shows that something is wrong.
Colossians 3:23 (NLT) 23Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
What are your team's core values? Do you have any?
