ALWC Guiding Principles 

The following guiding principles are the cornerstone of our ministry, with Jesus being the Chief Cornerstone.

1.     The Word of God (Bible) is the final authority.  2 Timothy 3:16

2.     We teach people to know Jesus and the Word of God for themselves (Jesus Is the answer).  2 Peter 1:3-4.

3.     It was Jesus’ purpose to give Abundant Life, which begins at the moment of redemption/salvation.   John 10:10

4.     Prayer is the highest privilege/weapon in the life of the Believer.  Hebrews 4:16 and 2 Corinthians 10:4-5

5.     The Love Walk: Loving God as a worshiper and loving people as God loves us.  Matthew 22:37-39

6.     The least person in the Body of Christ has been anointed for impact, blessed to be a blessing, and gifted with a purpose (Called to fruitfulness).  Matthew 11:11-12

7.     Everything we do is worship (unto the Lord), we therefore do everything with excellence. Colossians 3:17, 23

8.     Evangelism is reaching the lost and guiding them in discipleship and transformation.  Matthew 28:19-20.

9.     The Church is the people, not the building or the programs.  1 Peter 2:5.

10.   Every person in the Body of Christ has a responsibility for Building Relationships.  2 Timothy 2:2, Romans 12:5 and 1 Corinthians 12:26:

  • Paul Relationships – The Mentor/Teacher
  • Barnabus relationships – The Co-Laborer/Friend
  • Timothy Relationships – The Disciple/Spiritual Son or Daughter
