CITY STREAMS CORE VALUES
As we worship, we seek to passionately love and glorify Jesus and celebrate the presence of the Holy Spirit with our praise and worshi.
PRAYERBecause God’s house is a house of prayer for all nations, we are committed to pray and fast that His Kingdom will come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Mark 11:17).
THE BIBLEWe believe the Holy Bible is the infallible and inspired word of God. We are committed to preaching God’s Word and obeying God’s Word (Matt. 7:24-25; Joshua 1:7-8).
KINGDOM OF GODWe are here to advance the Kingdom of God by sharing the Good News of the Kingdom (Matt. 24:14) and discipling nations (Matt. 28:18-20) with the power of the Kingdom (Matt. 4:22) while living the ethics of God’s Kingdom (Matt. 5-7).
THE LOCAL CHURCHWe believe that God’s means of advancing His Kingdom is the local church. Our goal is to have a growing, thriving and strong local church that would reach the lost and impact society (Matt. 16:18-19).
REFORMATIONGod wants us to reform society by bringing the Kingdom of heaven to earth (Matt. 6:9-10). We do this by calling people to discover their divine assignments in the Seven Mountains of Culture—family, religion, government, education, business, media and arts & entertainment—and to transform society through their respective spheres of influence (Matt. 5:13-14, 28:18-20; Gen. 1:28-29).
FINANCIAL PROSPERITYBecause it takes wealth to reform society, God wants us to prosper (Deut. 8:18; 3 John 2) and use the wealth to advance His Kingdom and transform society.
APOSTLESBecause the Church is founded on apostles and prophets (Eph. 2:20, 4:11), we believe and embrace the office and ministry of the apostle. House of Glory and City Streams Network is part of an apostolic network called Harvest International Ministry.
PROPHETSWe welcome and honor prophets and the prophetic ministry (Matt. 10:41). We are called to be a prophetic people and are committed to do only what we see our Father saying and doing (John 5:19).
FAMILYWe believe strongly in the biblical family model and are committed to its strength as a foundation for our church and society.
LOVEJesus gave us a commandment to love one another (Matt. 22:39). Therefore, we are committed to walk in love and unity in our homees, our churches, among the churches in our city, among the different ethnic groups and especially among those who don’t know Jesus in a personal way.
FAITHThe Bible says, “The just shall live by faith” (Rom. 1:17). “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Heb. 11:6). We are called to be people who “live by faith and not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7).
HOPEWe want to offer hope and encouragement to the discouraged and depressed in our society and in our church (1 Cor. 13:13).
GRACEJesus is full of grace and truth (John 1:17). We, too, are to be people who are full of grace. We know that by God’s grace we are saved (Eph. 2:8) and sanctified (Titus 2:11-12), and by His grace we experience success and favor in life (James 4:6; 1 Cor. 15:10).
EVANGELISM AND HEALINGWe seek to demonstrate and declare the Good News of Jesus, heal the sick, help bring deliverance to the oppressed and incorporate people into our church through evangelism, inner healing, deliverance and healing (Mark 16:15-18).
DISCIPLESHIPIn our discipleship and training, we seek to call people to Jesus, grow in Him, radically live out His Word and release people and leaders into ministry. Every believer is a minister (Eph. 4:11; 1 Pet. 2:9).
GENEROSITYBecause a sovereign God uses finances to expand His Kingdom, we believe that God wants us to give joyfully and sacrificially with our tithes and offerings, as a means to fulfill the Great Commission.
MISSIONS AND SOCIAL JUSTICEThrough missions we seek to plant churches cross-culturally, minister to the poor and train and empower indigenous leaders. This will be done through the local church and through Harvest International Ministry, the apostolic network that House of Glory & City Streams Network is aligned with.
Recognizing that none of the above can be accomplished in our own strength, we seek to be perpetually revived and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
