Our Values

Gospel-centrality

The gospel is at the center of all that we say and do. The center is not ourselves, or even God’s law, but rather the death and resurrection of Christ for our salvation, freely received through faith alone. The gospel is the means by which we are saved and also, in turn, has implications for how we are to live. It is to be related to all of life.

Creativity

We strive to feature writing and teaching that is artful and excellent, believing that this approach glorifies God and adorns the gospel.

Relevance

We seek not to be "culturally relevant" or immediately "timely" but rather relevant to the needs of the Church and its leaders. Because the Bible is always relevant, our content will be well-sourced and grounded in God's inerrant, infallible word.

Accessibility

As a complement to our value of Relevance, we seek also to provide resources that are clear and helpful to our prospective audience. We will avoid intellectualism and unnecessary academic tone in order to present relevant material in as clear and straightforward a manner as possible.

Usability

We value not simply content but its context, and thus want to present our material in a reader-prioritized way. Our hope is that you find the For The Church website simple to navigate. If you do not, please let us know.

Radical generosity

We put the focus on others and give freely and abundantly for their welfare in the gospel. This means we are willing to make things harder on ourselves in order to make them easier on others.  We will gladly and freely spend ourselves for the good of the church.
