Jesus reveals the love and the priorities of the Father in His ministry and sacrifice - He is perfect theology. 

Hebrews 1:2-3; Colossians 1:19, 2:9; John 1:1, 18; 3:16-17, 14:6-7, 8:1-11, 19

The enemy comes to steal and kill, but Jesus comes to destroy demonic activity and give us an abundant life.

John 10:9-11; 1 John 3:8; Matthew 9:11-13

God describes Himself as gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, and abounding in love.  God is good and, by nature, in a good mood.

Psalms 103:8-14; Numbers 14:18; Zephaniah 3:17; Galatians 5:22-23; Matthew 7:11; Exodus 34:5-7

God is good regardless of our circumstances.

Nahum 1:7; Romans 5:8, 8:28-32; James 1:17

God is generous. As we remember and retell what He's done in testimonies, He is able and eager to do it again.

John 3:16; Revelation 12:11, 19:10; Joshua 4:1-9

 

God is for us. He chose to redeem us from sin. (Ps 139:7; Rom 5:8, 8:30-32; 2 Cor 5:19)

God is not mad at us. (Heb 1:9; John 10:10; Rom 14:17-18; Ps 30:11-12; Zeph 3:17; Is 61:3)

God’s desire is to prosper us in every area of our lives: physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and vocationally. (Is 26:3; John 10:10; Luke 9:6, 56; Rom 5:8, 8:1; 3 John 1:2; Gen 12:1-3; Jer 29:11)

God does not cause sickness to teach people a lesson or punish them. Jesus is our New Covenant model, He healed all the sick people He encountered. (Matt 4:23, 8:2-3; Acts 10:38)

We live from the premise that God wants to encounter and heal everyone. (2 Peter 3:9; Eph 1:4-6; Rom 1:18-21; Matt 4:23-24, 8:1-3, 8:16-17, 9:35, 14:34-36; Mark 6:56; Luke 9:11; Acts 10:38; 1 John 3:8)

 
 

God will always bless our decisions. We can do whatever we want, God will never judge us. (Heb 10:26; 2 Tim 2:19; 2 Cor 5:10; Heb 9:27; Gal 5:13-24)

God doesn’t get hurt by our actions and will never confront us on sin. (Eph 4:30; 1 Thess 5:19; Matt 15:13)

If we are not healed it is because God doesn’t love us or we lacked faith. (Matt 4:23; Matt 12:15; John 9:1-3; John 11:4; Acts 10:38)

Our lives are always going to be easy and there will be no trials. (John 16:33; Phil 3:10; Rom 8:31-39; Ps 34:19)

We don’t have to grow in our relationships with God or steward or grow our gifts. (2 Tim 1:6; Mark 4:25; Phil 3:14; Matt 6:33; James 4:8)

Our prayers will always be answered the way we expect. (Luke 18:1-8; 1 Thess 5:17)

 

The goal of Scripture is to bring us into relationship with the Author and transform us into His likeness.

Psalms 119:105; Matthew 4:4; 2 Corinthians 3:15-18; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; James 1:22-25

We encounter God in the Word, and faith is released into our lives. As we study Scripture, it reveals to us who God is, who we are and how He wants us to live.

Psalms 119:105; Matthew 7:24-28;  John 8:31-32; John 17:17; Romans 10:17; Romans 15:4; 1 Corinthians 10:1-13; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; Colossians 3:15-17

The Word of God is the source of infallible authority by which we judge all insight and prophetic revelation.

Proverbs 30:5-6; Matthew 22:29; John 8:31-32; Colossians 1:6-9; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:16-21

 

The Bible should lead us to an ever-growing relationship with Jesus. (Job 42:5; John 1:14; John 14:6)

Through relationship and empowerment by the Holy Spirit we can accurately experience and apply the Bible. (John 16:12-15; 2 Cor 3:6)

God’s promises are “yes and amen” for the believer in Christ. (2 Cor 1:20)

When we declare God’s words, we release Him to transform the world. (Prov 18:21; James 3:4; Joel 3:10; Is 54:1; Mark 4:39; Acts 3:6-7)

Reading the Word in a Holy Spirit-filled community helps guard people from deception. (John 16:12-15; 1 Cor 2:9-11; John 4:1; Matt 7:15; 1 Cor 12:10)

We need to keep listening and asking God questions because He can reveal more truth over time. (Gen 22; Gen 18:16-33; James 1:5; Matt 7:7-12)

We interpret the Bible through the person of Jesus. (John 1:14; John 14:9; Col 2:9; Heb 1:3)

God is absolutely boxed in by our current understanding of His Word. (Judges 16; John 8:1-11; Matt 12:1-13)

Encountering God is more important than reading, studying and applying the Word. (2 Tim 2:15; Rom 6:13; Prov 22:29)

It's impossible for a Christian to be deceived. (Gal 3:1; 1 John 4:1)

We shouldn’t judge or question biblical truth. (1 John 4:1; Matt 7:15-20)

The devil can’t use Scripture to deceive a Christian. (James 2:19; Matt 4:1-11)

Every word in the Bible should be applied directly. (2 Cor 3:6; Matt 5:30)

 

God delights in us and has always desired to be with us. We focus on His presence because we have discovered He is focused on us.

Ephesians 1:4-5; Zephaniah 3:17; John 6:44; Jeremiah 31:3; Psalms 65:4

Our first ministry is to God. When we recognize Him, we are moved to worship with joyous passion and encounter Him in prayer, the word, and fellowship throughout the day.

Psalms 27:4; Luke 10:42; James 4:8; Psalms 23:6; Psalms 23:6; Psalms 26:8; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Psalms 1:1-3

Purposely cultivating hunger for God’s manifest presence and openness to Holy Spirit experiences deepens our friendship with God and the awareness that we carry His presence in the world.

Psalms 73:28; John 1:16; Psalms 107:9; Matthew 5:6; Isaiah 55:1-2; 1 Corinthians 3:16

As a lifestyle, we focus on Him while we minister and attempt to say what God is saying and do what He is doing.

John 5:19-20; 5:30; 12:49-50; 14:10; 1 John 4:16-17

 

God has made us a dwelling place for His Spirit. (1 Cor 6:19-20; 2 Tim 1:14, Col 2:9-10)

As we draw near to God, He draws near to us. (James 4:8; Matt 5:6; Matt 6:33)

The Holy Spirit’s Presence motivates us towards loving and changing the world. (Matt 28:18-20; Joel 2:28)

We are called to keep our awareness completely on God (face-to-face) and not allow anything else to come between Him and us. (Ex 20:3; Phil 4:8)

As we behold God, we are changed into His image. (2 Cor 3:18; 2 Cor 5:18-20)

We thrive when we continue in connection to Him. Our connection with God gives us His joy and strength. (Ps 13:5; Heb 1:9; John 15; Acts 17:28)

There is no divide between secular and sacred, His Kingdom is inside us wherever we go. (Josh 1:3; Rev 11:15)

Christians should spend all of their time in private worship to God, disconnected from the real world. (Heb 10:25; 1 Cor 4:12; Gal 6:10; Matt 18:20)

Everything supernatural is from God. (1 John 4:1; Acts 13:6-12; Acts 16:16-18)

Physical manifestations are an indicator of how spiritually mature we are and accurately show the health of our walk with Jesus. (1 Cor 13:1-3, 13; Matt 7:21-23)

We chase after manifestations because if we don’t, they won’t come to us. (1 Cor 12:4-11; 1 Cor 7:7; Eph 4:7; Heb 2:4)

God’s presence is only in the church and not in the world. (Ps 139:7-12; Matt 5:44-45; Hab 2:14; Num 14:21)

The Holy Spirit leads us into a self-focused lifestyle. (Matt 16:24-25; Luke 14:27; 1 Peter 2:21)

We only worship God when we feel like it. (Ps 42; Rom 1:20-21; Matt 22:37-38)

 

Jesus has won absolute victory. We are forgiven and freed from the enemy's power of sin, sickness, lies and torment, so now we operate in the power of righteousness, healing, truth and joy.

Romans 6:4; Romans 8:1-4; Romans 8:14-16; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20

We are adopted as royalty into God’s family and commanded to help others be reconciled to God and come “home.”

John 1:12; Romans 8:14-16; 2 Corinthians 5:18-21

We are simultaneously servants, children, and trusted friends of God.

Matthew 23:10-12; John 15:15; John 1:12

We are new creations, not merely “sinners saved by grace,” but saints who have been given His righteousness.

2 Corinthians 5:17; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 1:17; Romans 3:28; Romans 8:29-30

 

We are saints, not sinners, and are sanctified. We no longer live under shame or condemnation. (Rom 8:1-4; Rom 8:34; 1 Cor 1:30; Gal 2:20; Rom 3:24; 1 John 4:17)

Freedom, blessing and an abundant life are available to us now. (John 10:10; Matt 6:33; Mark 10:29-30; Prov 3:9-10; I John 4:18; 2 Tim 1:7; Phil 4:8)

God doesn’t remember our sins or hold them against us. We are not who our past says we are. (Rom 8:1-2; Heb 9:26; Psalms 103:12; 1 John 1:9; Acts 3:19; Rom 6:4; 2 Cor 5:17; Gal 3:13-14)

We have been given authority and access to God’s resources. (2 Cor 5:17; Eph 1:5-14; Matt 28:18-19)

We are transported into another Kingdom, and we live from Heaven towards earth. (Eph 2:5-7; 1 John 4:17; Col 1:13; Col 3:2; Ps 121:1-2)

God has given us joy greater than any circumstances we face. (Is 54:1; Neh 8:10; Heb 12:2)

We are too "royal" to serve. (Matt 20:28; Mark 9:35, Mark 10:42-45)

There is no process, renewing of our mind, seeking after God or going from glory to glory. (Matt 6:32-33; Rom 12:2; Phil 3:12-14)

”Sin is not that big a deal”, and we don’t have to repent if we sin. (James 5:16; 1 John 1:8-9; Acts 5:1-11; Heb 10:26-31; Luke 11:4; 1 John 2:1; James 5:16)

We are Jesus. (Matt 24:4-5; Col 2:6-12; John 5:21; Rom 8:10-11)

We don’t feel Godly conviction, and we don’t have consequences or messes to clean up when we sin. (2 Cor 7:9-10; Rom 6:1; Luke 19:8-9)

Our past is completely evil and has no evidence of God’s goodness. (Ps 16:6; Rom 11:29; Rom 8:28)

We have already attained perfection, and there is no room for us to grow. (Phil 3:12-15; 1 Cor 13:12)

 

We have a big God and the devil is small and defeated. Yes, we are in a battle, but the outcome is not in doubt.

1 John 4:4; Romans 8:31-39; John 12:31; 1 John 2:13; 1 John 5:4; Acts 4:23-31; Mark 5:1-11

We believe and live the prayer, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as in heaven.”  Therefore, we partner with the King in natural and supernatural ways to create mercy, justice, and righteousness until He comes.

Matthew 6:9-10; Matthew 10:42; Matthew 25:40; Matthew 10:7-8; John 14:12

Every believer is in full-time ministry because God is advancing His Kingdom, not just building His Church. Our work and effort, whether big or small, inside or outside the church, is sacred and valuable to God.

Colossians 3:23-24; Daniel 6:3; Proverbs 22:29; Isaiah 60:1-5; Matthew 13:31-32

As the Kingdom advances, there will be resistance and conflict, but we expect the culture to be changed as people experience God's nature and partner in His plan for the world.

John 15:19-21; 2 Corinthians 4:8-11; 2 Corinthians 12:10; Luke 12:11-12; John 16:33; Acts 4:23-31

We discover our gifts and become excellent at serving leaders in the realms of society that God placed us. We live to cover them, support them, and help them succeed. (Dan 2; Gen 41:1-46)

Everyone will end up attending church...

We can change the world by human strength and ability. (Zech 4:6; Jer 17:5-6; Matt 7:7-8)

God doesn’t love and prosper secular leaders in society. (Matt 5:44-46; Acts 14:16-17)

We have to be at "the top" of a mountain of society in order to bring Kingdom change. (Luke 13:21; Matt 13:32; Gen 41:1-46)

There is not a process of growth or influence before favour comes on someone's life. (Zech 4:10; Luke 2:52; 1 Sam 2:26; Pro 3:3-5)

We will see everything happen in our lifetime that we believe for. (Heb 11:13)

 

We are adopted into God’s family, so we intentionally create family and community wherever we go.

We think like healthy family members by doing what’s best for the whole environment and submitting to one another and by not being selfish.

Ephesians 5:21; Galatians 5:13; Philippians 2:3; Romans 12:9-21

We purposely grow our individual capacity to trust and be trusted in covenant relationships as we empower and confront one another to live out who we truly are.

Matthew 18:15; 1 Corinthians 4:14-21; 1 Thessalonians 5:14

We are loyal, and loyalty is demonstrated most radically when people fail. We don’t punish and abandon people to save face or convince the world that we hate sin, but love to see them restored.

Matthew 18:15; John 8:1-11; Galatians 6:1; Psalms 141:5; 1 Corinthians 4:21

We covenant with people, seeking their benefit in everything we do. We do nothing out of selfish ambition or gain. (Phil 2:3-16; Rom 12:10; Rom 2:8, Eph 5:21)

No matter what people do, forgiveness is our standard. (Matt 18:21; Luke 17:4)

We are self-sufficient and don’t need others. (Eccl 4:9-12; Heb 10:24-25; Matt 18:20; Heb 3:13; 1 Cor 12:12-14)

All Christian communities are going to be healthy families. (Gal 6:1-2; 1 Cor 5:6; 1 Cor 4:14)

We have to hate ourselves and love others. (Mark 12:31; Luke 5:16; Ps 127:2; Jer 29:11; 1 John 5:3)

Christians don’t have to follow the rules/laws of society. (Rom 13:6-7; Pro 24:21; Dan 2:21)

Children have a junior Holy Spirit. (Joel 2:28; Matt 18:3; Luke 1:41)

Honour recognizes and affirms how valuable and powerful other people are because they are made in His image and He died to restore them to relationship. We are significant.

Genesis 1:26; Ephesians 4:22-24; Romans 12:10

The level of value we have for one another influences the measure of impact we have on each other.

Matthew 10:41; John 13:35; Philippians 2:1-4

We call out the best in people and celebrate them in spite of our differences, responding to people based on who we are and their God-given identity, not simply their behaviour or self-definition.

1 Corinthians 12:18; 24-26, 14:3; Philippians 4:8

Honour must be demonstrated through consistent respect in word and action toward those we lead, follow, love and disagree with. Honour avoids controlling others but does confront, limit and discipline when necessary.

We love people that we cannot receive anything from. (Rom 5:8; Matt 25:40, 45; Matt 10:42; Pro 14:31)

We never confront people or call them to live up to their true identities. (1 Cor 4:14; Luke 9:54-56; 2 Cor 7:1)

Everyone is equal, and we operate from a "round table" where everyone has the same favour. (1 Cor 12:18, 24-26; Matt 10:41)

Leaders are allowed to be destructive, manipulating and controlling. (Matt 10:25-26; 1 Peter 5:3; 1 Cor 3:12-13)

We honour in certain environments, but not in others. (Matt 19:13-15; John 13:34-35; John 4:1-42)
