What are the 12 Stones?
Every organization has a culture, whether it's intentional or unintentional. We're intentional about our culture! These stones are foundational in all we do and all we will do to bring Heaven to earth! Our Culture Code supports our Beliefs in shaping our DNA. They keep the vision of Discovery Life clear as we aim to represent Jesus. These codes create guides for how we make decisions and in what we do
WE PREACH THE GOSPEL
In our songs, at our services, with our words and with our lives. We celebrate and share the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ in a way people can understand.
WE LOVE PEOPLE
All of them! Backgrounds, shapes, colors, sizes, educations, salaries, single, married, young, old. churched, dechurched, unchurched.
WE PROTECT UNITY
The poisons of gossip, complaining, backbiting, discord and division are not welcome here. Nor will they be tolerated.
WE ARE PLANTED IN CHURCH
With a posture of generosity, we share our time in Connect Groups, our talents in Serving and our money through tithes and offerings.
WE SERVE THE HURTING
The poor, the orphan, the lost, the forgotten and the broken are close to God's heart and we want them close to our hearts as well.
WE FIGHT FOR SURRENDER
We are on a path to see every part of our lives (speech, finances, sexuality, insecurities, fears, triumphs, etc.) conformed to the character of Christ.
WE SPEAK TO MOUNTAINS
We are agents of change in this world. Designed by God to carry out His mission of new life in every aspect of our culture (business, arts + entertainment, education, media, government.)
WE GIVE HONOR
To those we lead, we work beside, and those we follow. The cross gives every human being immeasurable worth. And we will treat people with the honor the cross displays and demands they deserve.
WE WALK IN HUMILITY
Because God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. We seek to agree fully with everything God says about us. False humility and overbearing pride can cripple the Church.
WE SEE WITH EYES OF HOPE
God's final word is always good. If it's not good then it's not final.
WE EXPRESS JOY AND THANKS
We laugh, we celebrate, we applaud. We show the world and God our gratitude and happiness. We enjoy life!
WE LEAD LIKE CHAMPIONS
Our confidence and competence is not based on our skill and talent, but on the glorious victory of our Savior Jesus Christ. Who through His death, burial and resurrection, defeated darkness and redeemed the world. His victory is now our victory.
