VISION and VALUES
Elevate People, individually and as a church, carry the vision and values of the House. Our values
are the behaviors supporting how we lead and serve. These values support that vision. We have
adopted these into our personal lives as well as in the culture of the church. We believe that all we do
and say is filtered through the lens of our vision and values as Elevate People. These values should
be something that you are greatly familiar with and can speak from at any given moment.
VISION OF ELEVATE PEOPLE
Loving people to an encounter with Jesus.
Jesus: Is our Message
Our purpose at Elevate is to introduce the Hope of Jesus to everyone we know. God’s presence is the
heartbeat behind all we do - without it we are nothing; within it we find everything needed for life.
People: Are our Heart
We love EVERYONE. You don’t have to believe to belong. We are committed to experiencing
life as a diverse community. Our differences individually complete us as a family.
Freedom: Is our Spirit
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or where you’ve come from, we all need freedom. Walking
in a spirit of freedom gives us the strength and authority to win Sunday to Sunday.
Excellence: Is our Lifestyle
God is worthy of our excellence. Giving our best at all times in everything we do brings
joy to God’s heart and glory to His name.
Passion: Is our Response
Everything we do, we do it with passion. From our worship to our service, we do it with Holy Spirit
energy. Passion drives us to prayer. Passion for Jesus. Passion for people. Passion for His church.
Generosity: Is our Heartbeat
We see generosity as a privilege. We're generous with our time, talents and treasure.
We go first in our giving. It's our honor to give back to God.
Honor: Is our Foundation
We are vocal with our honor, meaning we are not stingy with our words. We submit to leadership
and are thankful for spiritual authority. We choose joyfully to submit to those God has placed over us.
We honor and care for those God has placed under us.
Serving: Is our Mission
If serving is beneath you, leadership is beyond you. We believe the greatest leadership is
service unto others. Every leader is a servant first. From the parking lot to the pulpit, everyone serves.
Every role is different but they are all equally important. Serving others is a God-given desire allowing
us to experience the fullness of giving ourselves to a cause greater than us.
