Our Core 12

Our CORE 12 represents what's important at LifeWay. It defines our culture and reflects the identity of Christ to the world around us. It is a description of our spiritual DNA as gleaned from the attitudes and actions practiced by the very first Christians in Acts 2:40-47. Upholding our CORE 12 ensures that we remain faithful to what God has called the church to be and do.
