Vision and Values
Beulah is a church of disciple-makers who equip and empower one another to follow Jesus, be continually changed by Him, and join Him in what He is doing in the world.
Our vision is the unique calling God has given to us as a church.
What we believe determines what we value, which in turn defines how we live.
Check out our core values to see who Beulah was, is, and continues to be.
We are for—not against. Jesus practiced radically ordinary hospitality with everyone. Thus, we interact with others in love, gentleness, grace, and truth because we know it’s God’s kindness that leads to repentance. We are incredibly welcoming because we are a church family who is for—not against.
Above all, put on love, which is the perfect bone of unity.
Colossians 3:14 CSB
We plant and water seeds. Jesus invites us to play an active role in helping people find their way to Him. As His coworkers, we plant and water the seeds of the gospel in those we live, work, study, and play with, while God causes the growth. This means that no matter the effort or the result, we are relentlessly missional.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, I also send you.” After saying this, he breathed on the and said, “receive the Holy Spirit.”
John 20:21-22 CSB
We are disciple-makers. Jesus intentionally multiplied Himself by loving, inspiring, teaching, and training His disciples to do what He did. We do the same, by equipping and empowering one another to follow Jesus, be changed by Him, and join Him in what He is doing in the world. As disciples who make disciples, we are intentionally multiplying.
Jesus came near and said to them, “all authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 CSB
We live with open hands. Jesus courageously gave up everything so that we can have everlasting life. Therefore, we surrender our time, talent, and treasure to God with joy and gratitude. By living open-handed, we are courageously generous, for it is more blessed to give than to receive.
…remember the words of the Lord Jesus, because he said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
Acts 20:35 CSB
