THE THREE CORE VALUES
of the LGBTS CHRISTIAN CHURCH INC.
1.FAMILY– a group of people who are generally not blood relations but who share common attitudes, interests, or goals and, frequently, live together:
Love makes a family.
Biblical Foundation: I Corinthians 13:4-8
“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.”

2.SPIRITUALITY – a life oriented toward the Holy Spirit.
