VISION & GUIDING VERSES
• We will use experience, training and common sense to enact wise decisions while maintaining a peaceful atmosphere free of fear and full of trust in the Almighty. (Matthew 10:16)
• We will recognize that love for God is enmity with the world. We will recognize that identifying ourselves as joint heirs with Jesus puts us in the sights of those who hate the Gospel and would do radical things to prevent fellowship of believers. (Matthew 10:22)
• God promises to always be with us; He alone can supersede the effect of free will and prevent logical results from disastrous free will actions. We will seek God’s help always, but even more fervently when a detrimental action puts us in danger. (Hebrews 13:5b)
• While God promises to protect us, he expects us to use the Holy Spirit’s intuition given to all Christians to make smart decisions within the realm of our capabilities. Just as the Jews, while trusting in Elohiym, made sensible provisions to prevent attack by their enemies, we will provide reasonable, sensible provisions to prevent harm to the assembled followers and staff of Christ at Alexandria Covenant Church. (Nehemiah 4:9)
