Core Values

All of our content is curated with our core values in mind.

OUR VALUES:

We believe the local church is the hope of the world. The ministry team at pursueGOD.org started as a pastoral team in the local church, growing an effective multi-site church in a spiritually challenging region. We continue to equip our own church every week with the resources here, and now we’re making those same tools available to like-minded churches everywhere. Everything we do is based on a philosophy of ministry with three core values: teaching the Bible, centering on Jesus, and empowering everyone.

Value #1: Teaching the Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s Word. In our resources we define sin as “trusting and acting on your own feelings and opinions rather than trusting and acting on God’s truth”. A key function of the local church is to properly communicate God’s truth to a culture that is constantly being pulled away from it. Our weekly resources teach the Bible with simplicity and clarity.

Value #2: Centering on Jesus

It’s all about Jesus. We write our sermons, small group resources, and youth and kids curriculum with Jesus in mind. We use worship songs that point to the person and work of Jesus in our lives. Our resources are designed to make weekend services a gateway to a deeper relationship with Jesus for every person who attends. Learn more about Jesus

Value #3: Empowering Everyone

We believe every person must make a personal decision to pursue God. Once they do this, they are empowered by the Holy Spirit to live a new, God-honoring life. But the ultimate accomplishment in the Christian life is disciple-making, and Jesus has called every believer to do it. Our resources empower regular people to help others pursue God, one topic at a time. Learn more about biblical mentoring
