While we esteem and celebrate the uniqueness of every member of our First Weber City church family, we firmly value nine core areas in the life of our church. Together, these shared values identify who we are, rally us toward all that we desire to accomplish, and unite us in fellowship.
We value Authentic Worship. Worship is more than a song we sing, or a service we attend. It is a lifestyle we live.
"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:24
We value Opportunities to Share our Faith locally and globally. We are bold about the Gospel and take every opportunity to love, serve, and be involved in our local community and actively participate in missions around the world.
"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believethl" Romans 1:16
We value God’s Word. We eat, sleep, and breathe Scripture. It is the most important authority in all areas of faith and practice in our ministry.
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We value Excellence in service to God. We believe excellence honors God and inspires people. We seek to do it right and give our best in every endeavor.
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men." Colossians 3:23
We value People. First Weber City is a place where everyone who visits us will sense acceptance, hope, comfort and healing in their lives. We celebrate others in an atmosphere that elevates people and treats everyone with uncommon appreciation.
"Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor." Romans 12:10
We value Generosity. We are generous with who we are and what we have. We are spiritual contributors, not spiritual consumers. We show how much we care for people by giving freely of our resources to make a difference in our community and the world.
"By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth." 1 John 3:16-18
We value Glorifying God. Our greatest desire is that our God is honored through every part of our service for Him. We act with honesty, transparency, and without compromising the truth; we strive for Christ-likeness in all our actions.
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:16
We value Unity and Diversity in Service. We believe that every believer has unique spiritual gifts and abilities given by the Holy Spirit. There are no single super-stars at First Weber City who can do everything... just lots of ordinary people who are willing to do their part to make an impact for His kingdom.
"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ." Ephesians 4:11-12
We value Empowering the Next Generation. We have a God -given responsibility to raise up our children to know and follow Jesus. We desire to come alongside parents to help equip them to train and lead their families with a God-first priority.
"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." Deuteronomy 6:6-7
