Focus on the Lost
Luke 15:4: "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?"
Focus on MULTIPLICATION
2 Timothy 2:2: "And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others."
Focus on LIFE TRANSFORMATION
Matthew 28:20: "And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Focus on GOD'S RESOURCES
Philippians 4:19: "And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
We acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ and value the Bible as the Word of God and as the authority for our mission efforts and work (Phil. 2:9-11; 2 Timothy 3:15-17).
We value our churches and respect their autonomy (Matthew 16:18).
We value cooperation. We are intentional in our efforts to build trust. We join our hearts and our resources in fellowship, strategy and service to accomplish the Great Commission of reaching Dallas County and the world for Christ (Acts 11:22-30; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8).
We value diversity. We see our differences as opportunities to experience God more fully. We celebrate a genuinely multiethnic, multicultural partnership of people of all sizes (Acts 10:34-35; 1 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 4:7-13; Rev. 5:9).
The fact that Jesus died for our sin, was buried, and then rose from the grave is foundational for Southern Baptists. He lives today and stands ready to give abundant and eternal life to all those who repent of sin and place their faith in Him. Southern Baptists invite everyone to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
