core values

Our God-given core values answer the question, "Who are you and why do you do what you do?" They are the non-negotiable values of our network.

  • being a safe place

    ThThe ARC is a safe place where people can live joyfully and authentically as they're transformed by the Father's outrageous love and empowering grace. We are committed to raising up followers of Christ who are potent for the purposes of God and a threat to the enemy.

  • dependence on holy spirit

    The ARC is a network in which the power and gifts of the holy Spirit are celebrated, not merely tolerated. We embrace an environment where God's presence is continually pursued and experienced. We are committed to fostering a radical dependence upon the Holy Spirit and a healthy disregard for the impossible.

  • kingdom-minded

    Our first allegiance is to Jesus Christ, living under His rule and reign as He makes the Father known to all people. We are committed to continuing His ministry in the world today by surrendering our lives to His lordship, alert to His ongoing activity around us, and answering His call to go wherever He sends us.

  • leadercare

    The ARC is committed to the care and development of its leaders, and to helping them grow in emotional, relational, and spiritual health. We serve our leaders by helping them nurture their relationship with Christ, experience true community, discern God's call on their lives, and develop the necessary skills for effective leadership and management of ministry.

  • love is the supreme standard

    We are created from and for love. God's love is the supreme standard through which every issue we face and relationship we develop is viewed. With the Apostle Paul, we believe that love is the most excellent way to be members of the body of Christ and to exercise the gifts and abilities God has given us.
