Our Core Values
RAISED2WALK CORE VALUES
As we worship, we seek to passionately love and glorify Jesus and celebrate the presence of the Holy Spirit. We are a people of His presence.
HOUSE OF PRAYER
Because God’s house is a house of prayer for all nations, we are committed to pray and fast that His Kingdom will come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Mark 11:17).
We believe the Holy Bible is the infallible and inspired word of God. We are committed to preaching God’s Word and obeying God’s Word (Matt. 7:24-25; Joshua 1:7-8, 2 Tim. 3:16).
KINGDOM OF GOD
We are here to advance the Kingdom of God by sharing the Good News of the Kingdom (Matt. 24:14) and discipling nations (Matt. 28:18-20) with the power of the Kingdom (Matt. 4:22) while living the ethics of God’s Kingdom (Matt. 5-7).
THE LOCAL CHURCH
We believe that God’s means of advancing His Kingdom is the local church. Our goals at Raised2walk Ministries are to have growing, thriving and strong relationships with local churches, as well as all staff, students, and volunteers be committed to serve as part of the community of the local church (Matt. 16:18-19).
God wants us to reform society by bringing the Kingdom of heaven to earth (Matt. 6:9-10). We do this by calling people to discover their divine assignments in the Seven Spheres of Culture—family, religion, government, education, business, media and arts & entertainment—and to transform society through their respective spheres of influence (Matt. 5:13-14, 28:18-20; Gen. 1:28-29).
Because it takes wealth to transform society, God wants us to prosper (Jeremiah 29:11, Deut. 8:18; 3 John 2) and use the wealth to advance His Kingdom and transform society.
Because the Church is founded on apostles and prophets (Eph. 2:20, 4:11), we believe and embrace the office and ministry of the apostle. Raised2walk Ministries is part of apostolic networks, Harvest International Ministry, Global Legacy, R.O.A.R., and YWAM.
We welcome and honor prophets and the prophetic ministry (Matt. 10:41). We are called to be a prophetic people and are committed to do only what we see our Father saying and doing (John 5:19).
We consider the pastoral gifting to be absolutely the most crucial caring gift for our students, staff, volunteers, and partners with Raised2walk Ministries. It is our goal to identify those with such a gifting, and train them to disciple others. It is our hope to raise up fathers and mothers with
We value the teacher gift in Raised2walk Ministries, and lean heavily upon those with this gift to bring depth and understanding to the Word of God, with instruction on how to apply the Word in our relationship with God, and in walking out our destinies in Jesus.
We believe strongly in the biblical family model and are committed to its strength as a foundation for our ministry and society.
LOVE & UNITY
Jesus gave us a commandment to love one another (Matt. 22:39). He describes that love in 1 Cor. 13. Therefore, we are committed to walk in love and unity (Eph.4:1-4) in our homes, our families, our ministries, our discipleship churches, among the churches in our city, among the different ethnic groups and especially among those who don’t know Jesus in a personal way.
The Bible says, “The just shall live by faith” (Rom. 1:17). “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Heb. 11:6). We are called to be people who “live by faith and not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7).
We want to offer hope and encouragement to the discouraged and depressed in our society and within the local church (1 Cor. 13:13).
Jesus is full of grace and truth (John 1:17). We, too, are to be people who are full of grace. We know that by God’s grace we are saved (Eph. 2:8) and sanctified (Titus 2:11-12), and by His grace we experience success and favor in life (James 4:6; 1 Cor. 15:10).
EVANGELISM SIGNS & WONDERS
We seek to demonstrate and declare the Good News of Jesus, heal the sick, help bring deliverance to the oppressed and incorporate people into the local church through evangelism, inner healing, deliverance and healing (Matt. 11:4-6; Mark 16:15-18).
Through the launching small discipleship churches, we seek to reach out and disciple people where they are. We aim study the life of Jesus, and to disciple, train and edify the Body of future leaders. With small, safe environments to grow with one another, discipleship churches are critical to raise up individuals and groups to follow and share Christ with authenticity, accountability, encouragement, unity, faith, hope and love (Matt. 18:18-20; Acts 2:42; 5:42; 20:20).
In our discipleship and training, we seek to call people to a deepening relationship with Jesus, to grow in Him, to radically live out His Word and to love others to Jesus in everything we say and do. Every believer is a minister (Matt.28:18-20, Eph. 4:11; 1 Pet. 2:9).
We have a PASSION to reach the next generation for Christ, and we place a high priority to reach and minister to the emerging generation in cities around the United States, and in the nations of the earth.
Because a sovereign God uses finances to expand His Kingdom, we believe that God wants us to give joyfully and sacrificially with our tithes and offerings, as a means to fulfill the Great Commission.
MISSIONS AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
Through missions we seek to plant house churches locally, regionally, and cross-culturally. Our passion here is to minister to the poor and train and empower local leaders. This will be done through the local church and through apostolic networks that Raised2walk Ministries is partnered with.
ABIDE IN THE VINE
We recognize that none of the above can be accomplished in our own strength, we seek to be perpetually connected, aligned, submitted, obedient to Jesus in all we aim to do (John 15:4-6).
