Our Core12

Our CORE 12 represents what we value and is important at LifeWay. It defines our culture and drives what we pursue as a church. 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 CORE12 ensures that we remain faithful to the character of Christ and what God has called the church to be and do.
