As we grow in our understanding of God’s broader, longer perspective of life and how He uses every-thing in life to bring us closer to Him we, as a church hold to a set of core values and beliefs:
How We Make Decisions
LongView has held to four stated focal points that have guided our decision making since our inception.
1. People Matter: We believe that LongView has been planted to love, build up and care for the people that God sends to us and us to them. “Because, People Matter.” has become the unofficial caption of LongView Bible Church.
2. Community Impact: As we are developed and shaped by Christ in the church our genuine action and ministry impacts the community. We believe that a strong church is the anchor of a strong community.
3. Relevant Worship (worth-ship): Through our fellowships, Sunday Services and ministries, we seek to create an environment where we honor Christ by seeing the worth of each individual as a contribution to the whole.
4. The Cross: In order to transform the lives of those that God sends us & our local community toward lasting change, the activity, purpose & reality of the Cross serves as the central teaching point & reason for “why” LongView exists. At the cross, Christ demonstrated the fullness of love and glory of God that created the church and changed us. Any hope of change has to begin and end with our view of Christ’s cross. So we glorify the reality of the cross…and it is the focal point of our sanctuary, worship, teaching and ministry.
