CORE VALUES IN MINISTRY

What Makes Total Worship Center who we are? Our Foundation.

In the disciple-making process, there must be core values for the ministry. The core values are in place to sustain the spiritual fortitude and strength of TWC’s ministry. Also, it establishes the principles to support the vision of the ministry. Total Worship Center’s scriptural core values are foundational.

One of the foundational Scriptures is recorded by Paul to the Roman believers. In fact, in this passage of Scripture, Paul sets the groundwork for the discipleship-making process which encourages obedience and sacrifice. The Bible declares, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:1-2 (KJV)

In addition, an important scriptural reference in the context of core values in ministry encourages individuals to worship God in spirit and in truth. In John’s gospel, particularly the 4th chapter, Jesus is in a conversation with a woman in the proximity or the destination of a well.

The perspectives of the conversation addressed the need to disengage religious or generational overtones and give pause to the true nature of a relationship with Christ and the need to worship God the Father in spirit. In context, Jesus expresses to the woman in a dialogue, the nature and essential core value for disciple-making in ministry, which promotes worship.

John records, “The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:19-24 (KJV)

The application of the above Scriptures will support the principles of Sacrifice and Worship. Also, Total Worship Center’s ministry will incorporate the above principles in its missional value statement. Therefore, the impact of the ministry will yield positive results in the disciple-making process as a hybrid of church (building and location), and small groups.
