These values represent the essence and personality of the National Association of Christian Ministers. They are the standards by which our culture and unity are kept.
We value God’s calling of both men and women to ministry (Mat. 28:18-20; Acts 2:17; Gal. 3:28).
We value the advancement of the Gospel of Christ for the establishment of salvation, forgiveness, and the perpetuation of Christianity (Mat. 28:18-20).
We value the pursuit of unity (at the foot of the cross) among brothers and sisters in the Christian faith (Eph. 4:13).
We value the independence of ministers so that they may follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in the direction and government of their ministries (Act. 8:29; 10:19; 11:12; 13:2-4; 16:6-7; 20:22, 21:4).
We value leadership that duplicates our Lord’s servant heart (Mat. 20:27; John 13:14).
We value fellowship among ministers for the sake of strength, encouragement, edification, prayer, and support (Rom.14:19; 1 Thes. 5:11; Eph. 2:21-22; Php. 4:8).
1Th 5:9-19 GW
(9) It was not God's intention that we experience his anger but that we obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(10) He died for us so that, whether we are awake in this life or asleep in death, we will live together with him.
(11) Therefore, encourage each other and strengthen one another as you are doing.
(12) Brothers and sisters, we ask you to show your appreciation for those leaders who work among you and instruct you.
(13) We ask you to love them and think very highly of them because of the work they are doing. Live in peace with each other.
(14) We encourage you, brothers and sisters, to instruct those who are not living right, cheer up those who are discouraged, help the weak, and be patient with everyone.
(15) Make sure that no one ever pays back one wrong with another wrong. Instead, always try to do what is good for each other and everyone else.
(16) Always be joyful.
(17) Never stop praying.
(18) Whatever happens, give thanks, because it is God's will in Christ Jesus that you do this.
(19) Don't put out the Spirit's fire.
