About Us » Core Values
Nothing but the Truth is a ministry that is founded on stepping out of our comfort zones in order to make Jesus known. We do things differently and we do our best to follow the counter-culture leadership of Jesus. We are based on the following core values and we invite like-minded individuals to join us in “meeting others where they are”.
It ALL Counts
Nothing but the Truth is an organization where the Body of Christ, businesses and individuals comes together in order to show our community that we live what we believe. We work together as the body works together. We believe everyone matters and any gift or talent can be used if we lay it before the Lord and ask Him to do the miraculous.
I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. I Corinthians 3:6, 7
There Is NO Us and Them
Relationships matter at Nothing but the Truth. We are a ministry based on relating to people where they are and we are not trying to make them like us. We believe everyone has something to offer and we can all learn from each other. We build community.
He made no distinction between us and them…we are all saved the same way, by the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus. Acts 15:9-11
We Serve PEOPLE Not Projects
We offer services to meet real needs but the most important thing we can do is connect with the person. We also understand that what we do can either move someone closer to Jesus or further away. We have to leave our agenda at the door because it’s not about us.
Jesus did not come to be served but to serve. Matthew 20:28
We Show Up
Relationships do not happen overnight and many of the those we serve have had trust broken so many times that we have to earn their trust. This is a hard ministry of perseverance. We are here for the long haul and there are no short cuts.
They were just trying to intimidate us, imagining that they could discourage us and stop the work. So I continued the work with even greater determination. Nehemiah 6:9
