keeping the vision clear
To see all people experience the joy and blessing of right relationship with God, through His Son Jesus Christ
To make and train followers of Jesus Christ, by UNDERSTANDING, EMBRACING, and DOING God’s Word
We value our bodies realizing that they are the temples of the Lord and that we are only stewards, not owners (1 Cor. 6:19). We believe according to Scripture that God is responsible for DIVINE HEALTH as well as DIVINE HEALING (Ex. 15:26; Isa. 53:5; Acts 9:34). Members of the INSIGHT community are encouraged to practice discretion, temperance, and discipline in all areas of life, and to maintain an active lifestyle.
DIVERSITY & RECONCILIATION
We value diversity in culture and ethnicity, and reconciliation. We believe according to Scripture that the Church on earth should be ‘as it is in heaven’, as an expression of God’s manifold wisdom and copious creativity…That heavenly citizenship is superior to, and inclusive of all earthly cultures and ethnic groups (Acts 17:26-27; Rev. 5:9). Members of the INSIGHT community are encouraged to intentionally seek to appreciate and embrace other cultures and ethnic groups, especially the Jewish community and nation of Israel.
We value education and intellectual development. We believe according to Scripture that we are to worship God with our minds, and that the presence of the Holy Spirit is synonymous with godly intelligence (Matt. 22:27; Isa. 11:2). Members of the INSIGHT community are encouraged to continually feed their minds and increase their knowledge base casually and formally as necessary.
We value diligence and faithful stewardship that results in holistic prosperity. We believe according to Scripture that the Lord our God gives us power to get wealth to finance His benevolent purposes in the earth, and that He is pleased to do so, increasing His people more and more (Deut. 8:18; Ps. 35:27, 115:14). Members of the INSIGHT community are encouraged to labor, working with their hands what is good, that they may have something to give to those in need (Eph. 4:28).
We value benevolent service to others, strengthening the hands of the weak. We believe according to Scripture that we are blessed to prosper to compassionately serve as ‘good samaritans’ to those in need, as Jesus’ representatives on earth (Lk. 10:30-37; 2 Cor. 5:20). Members of the INSIGHT community are encouraged to acquire wealth for the purpose of proclaiming and facilitating the Gospel.
We value our families esteeming them to be our first priority in ministry. We believe according to Scripture that our families should serve together as a reflection of our faith, and are not to suffer at the expense of our faith (Jn. 19:27; 1 Tim. 5:8). Members of the INSIGHT community are encouraged to worship together as families when possible, functioning as the church in miniature.
We value relationships that are meritorious. We believe according to Scripture that we are to love others as ourselves, sacrificing our lives for them as did Jesus (Matt. 22:39; Jn. 15:13). Members of the INSIGHT community are encouraged to walk in forgiveness, living as peacemakers who greatly enrich the lives of others.
