OUR CORE VALUES

What We Stand For

Core Value 01:

Jesus Christ is preeminent

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.

Core Value 02:

Humility is not an option

Phil 2:3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
1 Peter 5:5 Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

Core Value 03:

Your primary call is as a disciple of Jesus

Luke 14:33 So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.

Core Value 04:

An authentic portrayal of the world is not Godless or Christless

Psalm 14:1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.

Core Value 05:

Film cannot replace personal evangelism or discipleship

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Core Value 06:

There’s only one epic story that changes the world

1 Corinthians 2:2; For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
2 Corinthians 4:5 For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.

Core Value 07:

Esteem others as more important than yourself

Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

Core Value 08:

Embrace critique

Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.

Ephesians 5:21 …submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Core Value 09:

Honor Christ in the entire production, not just the final product

1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.

Core Value 10:

Good story and good worldview transcend a big budget

1 Timothy 6:6-10 But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
