Core Passions

At LFC, we refer to our “values” as our “passions.”
We believe that anything worth living for is worth fighting for, and our passions represent what God has called our church to strive for with excellence and tenacity.
HOW WE DO IT:
  • Inviting people to belong with us before they believe, in friendship and at church.
  • Never mocking or belittling those with whom we disagree.
  • Clarity in Christian essentials; freedom in cultural, political and Biblical matters; and ultimately, love in all things.
HOW WE DO IT:
  • Leading every child, student and adult to belong in a Christ-centered small group community.
  • Partnering with parents in the spiritual and character development of their children and youth.
  • “Doing a few things well” as a life-giving principle for personal, family and church schedules.
HOW WE DO IT:
  • Worship, teaching and small group communities that reflect Biblical grace and truth.
  • Cultivating a culture of grace and understanding where it’s safe to reveal woundedness without a risk of rejection, in order to create space for God’s healing.
  • Growing in our passion for scripture by studying it individually and together.
HOW WE DO IT:
  • Influencing others through personal relationships.
  • Utilizing creative influence through relevant subject matter, engaging art forms and compelling personal stories.
  • Creating strategic opportunities to raise up one more disciple, leader and church at a time.
HOW WE DO IT:
  • Rejecting “consumer Christianity” and rather spending ourselves for the sake of others.
  • Setting goals for 100% of Ministry Partners to have a short-term, cross-cultural mission experience.
  • Traveling near and far, to serve people who are like us, and not like us, people who are hungry for God or hungry for food.
