Making Life A Little Lighter
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what Goes does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down into its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturing in you.”
Faith: The values of Christ and the teachings of the Bible should guide all decision-making processes.
Courage: Being willing to take bold and decisive action in the face of challenges and adversity.
Community: Building strong relationships with the community and working to make a positive impact to society.
Respect: Valuing and honoring the dignity of all people and treating everyone with respect and kindness.
Generosity: Being willing to share your time, talents, and treasures with anyone in need as a conduit of God’s love.
Diversity: Embracing diversity in all it’s forms and creating an inclusive culture that values and leverages differences.
Integrity: Honesty, transparency, and accountability are paramount to building trust within the organization and with external stakeholders.
Our mission is to cover the world in Christ by unapologetically declaring to the world whose we are by proactively creating faith-centric cultures in the workplace.
