The Apostle Paul exhorted Timothy to “guard the good deposit … with the help of the Holy Spirit” (2 Timothy 1:14). Like Timothy, every ministry has a good deposit that must be guarded. In Every Nation, our foundational values articulate for us the good deposit we as a ministry must guard together, lest they be lost. Whether we’re building a discipleship group, a music group, or planting a new church, these core values are the essential issues and help describe how we build.



Because Jesus is “King of kings and Lord of lords,” we believe that whole-hearted submission to God’s will and his Word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth (Colossians 2:6).


God’s heart is to reach out to people, we are passionate about preaching the gospel and doing ministry in a way that encourages people outside of the Christian faith (Luke 19:10).


Because we are called to make disciples, our primary focus is establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister, and empowering disciples to make disciples (Matthew 28:19,20).


Because we are committed to a culture of empowering leadership, we value leadership development and intentionally create opportunities and platforms for next generation leaders (2 Timothy 2:2).


Because family is the foundation and validation of ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal ministry success. And because God has called us to be a church family, we embrace community and reject the concept of disposable relationships (Psalm 127:1.3; Ephesians 4:3).
