D6 Driving Values

At Second, we believe in three guiding principles, known as the D6 Driving Values. We hope that as you and your family go through these devotions together, you will be further encouraged in your relationship with the Lord, your church community, and in your Kingdom mission.


THE LORD IS MY 
PRIMARY DEVOTION

Confronted by the holiness of Christ, I seek Him in daily worship, prayer, and repentance.  Isaiah 6:1-8

Compelled by the love of Christ, I strive to be obedient to Him in my thoughts, words, and deeds. II Corinthians 5:14

Created new in Christ, my identity is no longer in the things of this world.  II Corinthians 5:17

Confident of the eternity secured for me in Christ, I have peace in the midst of the troubles of this life. Phillipians 4:6-7


THE CHURCH IS MY 
PRIMARY COMMUNITY

Knowing that the Gospel liberates me from idols, I cannot imagine not joyfully worshipping God every week with my brothers and sisters in Christ.  Thesselonians 1:9b

Knowing that the church is called to be a holy nation, set apart from the things of the world, I will embrace this calling by seeking to be Christ-like in all aspects of my life.  I Peter 2:9-12

Knowing that I am a steward of my resources and not an owner, I cheerfully release my resources to build His Kingdom and not my own.  Matthew 25:14-30

Knowing that the Body of Christ is essential to my sanctification, I actively seek relationship and accountability within the church in order to grow in Christ.  Ephesians 4:11-16

Knowing that God has given me spiritual gifts to use in the church, I willingly serve.  I Corinthians 12:4-7

Knowing that Jesus is present where two or more are gathered in His name, I happily pray with and for my brothers and sisters in Christ.  Matthew 18:20


BUILDING CHRIST’S  KINGDOM IS MY
PRIMARY MISSION

Belonging to Christ Kingdom causes us to live as a distinct people who are called to be about applying Christ’s work of redemption as far as the curse is found as we eagerly await His imminent return and the renewal of all things.  Romans 8:19-21

Building Christ’s Kingdom in all of life is an act of worship, and the reason I am alive is to multiply worshippers and redeem culture.  II Corinthians 5:16-21

Building Christ’s Kingdom begins in multiplying worshippers of Christ in my own household.
Joshua 24:15

Building Christ’s Kingdom is the lens through which I filter every decision as I further the work of redemption.  Romans 12:1-2

Building Christ’s Kingdom prioritizes Christ’s work of redemption to the extent of intentionally sacrificing our time, money, and talents in furthering the application of the redemption of Christ. I Corinthians 10:31-33
