Culture is a large part of any organization’s DNA. Great leaders leverage their influence to identify, inform, and inspire contagious culture within their organization. Below is a description of one of our intrinsic values at Epic Church.
We commit to being people of prayer.
As followers of Jesus, we have instant and direct access to God through prayer.
We can express our thoughts and feelings, confess our sins, and bring our requests, hopes, and dreams to him. Prayer also gives us the opportunity to hear from God and receive his wisdom, comfort, correction, and love.
Prayer is our participation in a relationship with God.
Prayer doesn’t have to be polished.
And it’s not a performance.
It’s a conversation.
And in any relationship, communication is vitally important.
That’s why we make prayer a priority.
At Epic, we want to surround every decision and action in prayer.
We pray first.
In every situation, whether good or bad, we try to pray before we act. Many times people act first and then want God to bail them out of that situation, but prayer should be our first response, not our last resort.
We believe prayer has the power to change lives and produce results.
Together as a church, and individually, let’s be people of prayer.
We should pray when we are in a praying mood, for it would be sinful to neglect so fair an opportunity. We should pray when we are not in a proper mood, for it would be dangerous to remain in so unhealthy a condition.
