Core Values

We believe...

that humankind is created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27) and that God has positioned humanity in a place of distinction in the created order (Psalms 8:6-7).  We strive to treat all of the children and families whom we are privileged to serve with dignity and respect.  We make every effort to protect our clients’ rights and to ensure their privacy and confidentiality.

We believe...

that family and marriage are institutions uniquely endorsed by God (Gen. 2:24).  We acknowledge that the institution of the family is the first institution ordained by God, and we therefore strive to protect families and to strengthen their integrity.

We believe...

that we are exhorted to do our best in all our efforts in order to bring glory to God
(1 Cor. 10:13).  We strive for excellence in the services we provide.  All of our counseling staff are specially trained professionals who are credentialed and either licensed or license-eligible.

We acknowledge...

that sin has separated all of humanity from God (Rom. 3:23).  We strive to provide the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:18) to those in need of restored relationships within their families and with God.  We also acknowledge there is sin in our own lives and we strive to provide ministry without passing moral judgment (Matt. 7:1-5, Matt. 18:21-22, John 8:3-7).  We believe an abundant life and forgiveness of sin are available only from the gift of grace through Christ (John 3:16, John 10:10).

We believe...

that God has called us to minister to families and children as the truest expression of our religion (James 1: 27) and we strive to do so in a spirit of love and humility (Micah 6:8).  We believe that ministering to hurting children and families is commanded in the teachings of Christ (Matt. 25:40) and we strive to accomplish this ministry out of a sense of glad obedience to Jesus.

We believe...

in the value of cooperation (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12) and we strive to work in cooperation with other agencies whenever possible.

We believe...

we are called to be good stewards of the resources trusted to us and we strive to have an effective administration which maximizes resources (Matt. 25:29).

We believe...

we are commanded to share the gospel with all people (Matt. 28:19-20).  We are aware of the delicate nature of the relationship we have with the children and families we serve.  We are not reluctant to share the Good News with them, but we do not use our services as a platform for religious coercion.

We affirm...

the three great virtues of faith, hope and love (1 Cor. 13:13), and we strive to be influenced by these three great virtues in all that we do.
