Core Christian Values

 

Our Vision leads the way in challenging us to consider our own identity with Jesus as our role model.

Our associated Christian Values of:

Perseverance

Friendship

Trust

Respect

…underpin all that we do.

We use our Vision through our Values to initiate conversations that help our whole community to understand and take responsibility for our individual choices and actions in life.

Perseverance

And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbours together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

Luke 15: 1-7

 

Friendship

Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralysed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” 

Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralysed Man

Mark 2:1-12 

Trust

But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

“Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.   But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

 

Jesus walks on the water

Matthew 14:22-33

Respect

But a Samaritan, as he travelled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.  He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.  The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him.’  he said.

 


The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Luke 10:25-37
