Our values are important because they help us to grow and develop; they help us to create the future we want to experience. Every individual and every organisation has values and the decisions we make reflect our values and beliefs.
As Restore, we believe that God has given us the following values as a part of our church DNA:
JESUS: IS OUR MESSAGE
The vision of Restore is to share the love and life of Jesus with as many people as possible. Jesus is who we follow and who we seek to emulate. Styles change, but our message remains the same.
PEOPLE: ARE OUR HEART
Our heart is for ALL people. All people are loved by Jesus – regardless of age, ethnicity, income, and sexual orientation. We believe that God wants to reach every person in the world with His love, and unlock the potential he has put in each one of our lives.
GENEROSITY: IS OUR PRIVILEGE
Generosity is about giving more than what is required. We see generosity as a privilege. We are generous with our time, talents and treasure. We take the lead in giving. God has given richly to us; it’s our honour to give back to Him.
EXCELLENCE: IS OUR SPIRIT
We always seek to do the best with what we have. We are on time, engaged and prepared. We don’t settle for good enough. If we are going to do it, it’s to the best of our ability.
SERVANT LEADERSHIP: IS OUR PRACTICE
If you’re too big to serve then you are too small to lead. We believe the greatest leadership is service to others. Every leader is a servant first. From the car park to the spotlight, everyone serves. Every role is different but they are all important. If you’re not helping, you’re not helping!
HONOUR: IS OUR CALLING
We are vocal with our honour, meaning we are generous and careful with our words. We value leadership and are thankful for spiritual authority. We choose joyfully to submit to those God has placed over us. We honour, love and care for those God has placed under us.
PASSION: IS OUR PURSUIT
Everything we do, we do it with passion. From our worship to our service, we do it with Holy Spirit energy. Passion drives us. Passion for Jesus. Passion for people. Passion for His church.
