more on our ten core values
God is the exclusive source of transformation.
We believe that human transformation is exclusively an act of God’s grace, applied by the Holy Spirit into the hearts of those who believe, seek His empowerment, and surrender to His Word. We believe that any authentic change in human behavior, beliefs, ideologies, or worldview only occurs as God supernaturally works in the hearts of believers to move them to keep His decrees.
Behavior modification that comes from human effort, muscled up by sheer acts of human will, is no more pleasing to God than an untransformed life. Efforts at change that arise from sheer human willpower do not produce lasting, spiritually authentic changes in the human’s life. Transformation that comes from the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit in the human heart will be authentic, powerful, lasting, and truly spiritual.
This is the most important core of the Imperfect Church’s doctrine and reason for existence.
