Core Values

Glory of God

WE GLORIFY GOD ABOVE ALL ELSE.

 

When a group of people are shaped by the gospel, living in community, and engaged in God’s mission, the result will be that God receives glory. Peter made that clear: “As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious {gospel}, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house {community}, to be a holy priesthood {mission}, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ {God’s glory}” (1 Peter 2: 4-5). So we do everything for God’s glory. Glorifying God is not a duty to fulfill, or another chore to check off a list. It is what will give us the most joy and fulfillment.

 

As John Piper has said, “The chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. … The longing to be happy is a universal human experience, and it is good, not sinful. We should never try to deny or resist our longing to be happy, as though it were a bad impulse. Instead, we should seek to intensify this longing and nourish it with whatever will provide the deepest and most enduring satisfaction. The deepest and most enduring happiness is found only in God. Not from God, but in God. To the extent that we try to abandon the pursuit of our own pleasure, we fail to honor God and love people.”

Gospel-Centered Discipleship

In the Great Commission, Jesus said to his disciples, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." (Matthew 28:18). At Newsong, gospel-centered discipleship (learning and living like Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit) happens in the context of meaningful relationships. Through formal gatherings and services to informal house gatherings and one-on-one relationships, these times provide opportunities for discipleship.

Gospel-Centered Evangelism

Evangelism, sharing the good news of the Gospel, is the responsibility of every follower of Christ.  We share the Gospel to our friends, family, coworkers, classmates, and neighbors with respect and love. At Newsong, we are committed to reaching out to our community and beyond through events such as our Easter Service and Trunk-or-Treat. In addition to these opportunities, we equip the church to share the Gospel in their various relationships and teach them how to live a life worthy of the Gospel through God's Word and Spirit. (Philippians 1:27)

Gospel-Centered Worship

Romans 12:1 reads, "present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” Worship includes but extends beyond singing songs to Jesus. Worship is a continuous lifestyle of service for God and through God. From serving the Lord at church gatherings to loving individuals and groups outside our service times, we offer our entire lives to the One who loved us and gave Himself for us. (Galatians 2:20).
