Courtside Ministries is founded on five core values that guide us in the way we reach out in the communities where we work. We believe that our actions should glorify God and bring others into a relationship with Him in accordance with the principles revealed in the Bible.
Courtside Core Values
Every human being has value in God’s eyes – This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men–the testimony given in its proper time. 1 Timothy 2:3-6
Prayer makes an eternal difference as we intercede for people at their time of need – On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Them many will five thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many. 1 Corinthians 1:10b-11
Followers of Jesus Christ have the privilege and responsibility of sharing His love with those in need – Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:18 – 20
Lives are changed forever when they encounter Jesus Christ and His Word – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:21
Followers of Christ are more effective when we work together to meet the full needs of every person – It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, 12 to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11 – 13
