Our Core Values and Commitments

  • To live out our lives surrendered to Jesus Christ and to influence and equip others to do the same.


  • In communicating and representing Melissa’s life to others, we are responsible to follow Jesus Christ as she did.


  • We are Christ followers, Sermon on the Mount followers, Word of God followers. We follow and obey Jesus' Words, His commands and His teachings throughout Scripture.


  • Our decisions and how we live are based on the written Word of God.


  • We commit to love as Melissa did and specially to love those she loved.


  • We commit to forgive quickly and to not “take into account” a wrong suffered; recognizing that some are “stuck in the dudu” and they need our love, prayers and encouragement.  As Jesus forgave us, and as Melissa lived a life of love and forgiveness so we must also do.


  • We choose grace and mercy over judgement.


  • We commit to speaking words of encouragement to each other and never speak disparaging words about anyone.


  • We commit to loving one another, to unity and to the ministry of reconciliation.


  • We commit to live our lives for the sake of the one life.


  • We commit to help one another live out these principals.
