Ten Principles

Ten Principles that Guide our Worldview

Pastor Jerry shared these devotionals with our Mission Church family in May 2020.
We pray these timeless principles guide us in all that we do.


1. First and foremost, we must remind ourselves that our primary allegiance is to the gospel – Romans 1:16

2. We must always seek to adorn the gospel with our words, tones, and actions – Colossians 4:6

3. We must remind ourselves that our ultimate citizenship is in heaven – Philippians 3:20

4. While we look to heaven, God calls us to care deeply for our earthly home – Jeremiah 29:7

5. We ought to care about the whole of society with special consideration for the body of Christ – Galatians 6:10

6. All life is precious and worthy of our protection – Psalms 139

7. Desiring to work is a righteous pursuit, and providing for one’s family is a mandate from God – Colossians 3:23 & 1 Timothy 5:8

8. God calls us to be good citizens who participate within the framework of the government where we reside – Rom. 13, 1 Peter 2, & Jeremiah 29:4-7

9. As people process and share their personal convictions, love compels us to believe the best of one another, showing deference and patience – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

10. The Lord has called us to extend grace and leave room for varying degrees of conviction and liberty within the bounds of Scripture – Romans 14
