1). VALUES: What They Are and How they Drive our Lives

-Values defind what is of worth to you, and can be discovered by what you give your time, energy and money to.

3). The Process of Renewing our Values and Rebuilding the Foundation of our Lives / Romas 6:16-23
-The process is led by and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
-We are exposed to truth and we believe it.
-We choose to live according to our new beliefs- this is like pouring a new concrete foundation.
-As we continue to live according to the new revelation of truth, the new life choices move from being conscious to becoming subconscious values. This is the new concrete.
-Our new life beings to exhibit the fruit of living according to our new values.
4). Living According to Jesus' Mission and Vision is Ultimately an Issue of Values

-Our Vision: For people everywhere to know and worship God in all His Glory and goodness.
-Our Mission: To build growing communities of whoppers who are becoming like Christ, empowered to do His work.
