Our Family Values

  • Obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
  • Always tell the truth, regardless of the circumstances or consequences; strive to be known as honest, reliable, and trustworthy.
  • Never cheat or steal; that brings dishonor on yourself and disrespect to the victim.
  • Always show respect to other people, no matter how you feel about them, through your attitude and language; it reflects the love that God has for them.
  • Help others whenever the opportunity arises; we are God’s servants.
  • Control your tongue; Swearing and angry words are inappropriate.
  • Be strong in your convictions; do not succumb to peer pressure.
  • Do not judge other people’s motives; only judge their behavior insofar as it personally affects you or family members.
  • Take good care of your body; a consistent healthy diet and physical exercise are important.
  • Be active in the pursuit of your Christian faith; regular Bible reading, prayer, worship, and service. Learn and use stewardship principles and your spiritual gifts.
  • Work hard in school to produce the best grades and most excellent work possible.
  • Carry out your household chores as a means of pulling your weight in the family, honoring family members through service, and developing good habits.
  • Make sure at least one parent knows where you are at all times; if you’re away from home and want to go somewhere else, get parental approval first.
  • Accept the penalties for inappropriate behavior; it is not a sign of anger or dislike by the elders who discipline you, but a sign of caring and love designed to facilitate growth.
