based on Scriptural truth contained in the Bible. These principles are foundational to PIP and must not be compromised. They are to guide us in our mission and be applied in every aspect of the ministry in serving the Body of Christ. While some of these values are common to many ministries, collectively they are what defines our identity and keeps our purpose relevant.
The purposes for highlighting our Core Values are to: (1) stay focused on God’s mission for PIP, (2) remain faithful to do what we promote, (3) provide guidance for unity within the Body of Christ, and (4) share these values to current and future generations.

Bible-based (II Timothy 3:16-17)
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

Kingdom-minded (Matthew 6:10, 33)
“…your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven… But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Unity-focused (John 17:20-23)
“…that all of them may be one Father, just as you are in me and I am in you… so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me…”
