1. Fulfilling the Great Commission
We value the Great Commission as the foundation for what we do and the purpose of why RBI exists. The Great Commission is at the heart of what Jesus calls the Church to do. As the PCA endeavors to fulfill the Lord’s mandate, the RBI Board of Directors and Staff seek to assist the local church and other ministries by providing services to meet their present and future financial needs. The church servants are then able to exercise their gifts, talents and abilities for the Great Commission free of their financial concerns. On our part, RBI fulfills the Great Commission by serving those who serve the Lord. (Matt. 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:46-48, John 20:21, Acts 1:8-9)
We value prayer as an expression of our humility and dependence on God. Following the example of Christ, we seek guidance from the Holy Spirit and regularly pray for our work, His people and His Church. (I Thessalonians 5:16-18, Mark 1:35, Philippians 4:6-7)
We value truth for Jesus is truth and calls us to protect and promote truth, through integrity and honesty in all areas of personal and ministry life. As we serve those who serve the Lord, truth dictates our fiduciary responsibility and holds us to a high moral standard. (John 14:6)
We value service by placing others before ourselves in following the example of Christ. We will serve our ministry partners by using our gifts, knowledge and business expertise, empathizing with their concerns and providing guidance as needed. (Matthew 20:26-28)
We value excellence as an expression of God’s character, Who made all things good and does all things well. We understand that all our work is done to model the Lord Himself for the benefit of the individual and the Church. By God’s grace and to the best of our abilities, we carry out our duties to those we serve. (Colossians 3:23)
We value relationships by modeling the Lord in His love and His servant heart. Through personal meetings and communications, we seek to build connecting relationships that express love, care and concern. We desire to treat all people equally and with dignity. (John 13:34, John 17:22-23, Philippians 2:3-5)
We value the need to be relevant in all our services and products. We will be attentive to the service needs of our people. We will be current and competitive in the product marketplace. Both the Staff and the Board are committed to high standards of professional expertise in all service areas of our ministry. (I Corinthians 9:22)
We value teamwork for Scripture teaches us that no one person is fully gifted or able to carry out the work of RBI. We recognize each others’ strengths, abilities, education, passions and experience. We seek to incorporate all talents into a functioning body that works together to accomplish our mission. This concept extends beyond RBI in that we value our ministry partners, recognizing their call to a specialized work that contributes to the body of Christ, collectively fulfilling the Great Commission. (I Corinthians 12 & 14, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
