ViaCordis Expressions of the 12 Life Commitments


This document is a sample value statement for a church in which the values are paired with behavioral actions that give legs to our beliefs. You can use it as a guide as you develop your own value statement for your church. Downloadable PDF file.


This downloadable PDF document lists the 12 basic life commitments of those who are part of the church I am currently planting. The commitments are organized around the three basic categories of love God, love others, and make disciples. Because a stated value means nothing if there is no behavior attached to it (see the book of James), we have created behavioral expressions for each of the 12 commitments, as well as an initial coaching question for each that people can use to help each other stay on track.
