Core values are fundamental statements that inspire an organization; it is how we interact with one another. Our core values underlie our work, how we interact with each other, and which strategies we employ to fulfill our mission. They are basic elements of how we go about our work. Our core values are important as we make decisions for the church that affect the people in it as well as those we are reaching. Every event, ministry, and outreach at Refuge is based on at least one of our core values. At Refuge we have twelve of them.
