Watershed is for people who believe that even though we don’t always get it right, God hasn’t given up on us.
WATERSHED CORE VALUES
EMPOWERMENT: Buzz word but packed with meaning. We believe that we can trust God in you. If God has His hand in your life, we believe that God knows better than we do and we will trust the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you. Our job is only to come along side and be a part of what God is already doing.
AUTHENTICITY: Before “excellence,” before “professional” and before “polished” we believe that authenticity is most important in our lives. It is better to be real and honest, even when it makes us look ‘bad’ than it is to put on a front. We do not want services or lives to be sloppy, but it is authenticity that will drive us, not perfection.
REPRODUCTION: The fruit of an apple tree is not an apple, but another apple tree. We believe that Christians are to seek out those who are interested and intentionally establish relationships with them, so that we may earn the right to be heard. But reproduction does not end with a new Christian Commitment, our goal is to bring people to Christ so that they will bring people to Christ (2 Tim. 2:2)
THE GOSPEL TRANSFORMS LIVES: Christianity is better served hot than cold. This value is similar to Empowerment, but with a different flavor. We believe that no matter who you are or what you’ve done, you need God. We also believe that deep in your soul you want God. When God gets a hold on you, your life will change: sometimes dramatically, sometimes subtly. No matter how God has grabbed you, you are usable by God to do powerful and amazing things.
FAITH IS A JOURNEY: While there are examples in our lives of conversions like Paul (all at once, a life is changed) we believe that faith is a journey. We will stumble, grow, misunderstand, fail and succeed. Sometimes we will be faithful and sometimes we will be hollow. All of these experiences are used by God to make us more empowering, authentic, reproducible and transforming. No one is a “good Christian” we are all Christians or not, and God is working to complete the good work that He has already begun in us.
