Principles

RBC Ministries has a diverse staff who share a common bond: We’re all members of the body of Christ. And as such, our workdays are governed by the following biblical principles:

Biblical Foundation

  • Honor the Bible as the standard by which we must evaluate all belief, instruction, policy, and practice (2 Tim. 3:16 ).
  • Remain true to our statement of faith (2 Tim. 1:13).
  • Reflect a well-rounded approach to doctrinal emphasis (Acts 20:27).

Qualifications For Leadership

Spiritual Resources And Commitment

  • Stay in close fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t give Him reason to say, “I have this against you, that you have left your first love” (Rev. 2:4 ).
  • Do the work of RBC Ministries in the Lord’s wisdom and strength rather than trying to do it on our own (Gal. 2:203:3 ).
  • Show a consistent pattern of behavior that distinguishes us as the Lord’s people, whether on or off the job (1 Pet. 1:14-15 ).
  • Always trust in God and do what is right (1 Pet. 3:16).

Concern For Those We Serve

  • Provide the kind of personal, prompt, and practical attention that we would want for ourselves (2 Cor. 4:5, 15).
  • Speak the truth in love. Avoid being unnecessarily offensive (2 Tim. 2:24).
  • Cultivate an open and honest relationship with those who respond to our efforts (2 Cor. 4:2 ).
  • Be sensitive to all other relationships and spheres of influence, including but not limited to vendors, visitors, neighbors, community, and government (Rom. 13:7-8 ).

Concern For Co-Workers

  • Recognize the individual worth and the personal interests of those with whom we work (Phil. 2:1-4).

Quality Of Service

  • Strive for a quality of workmanship and presentation that will dignify, strengthen, and enhance our message (1 Cor. 10:31).
  • Be faithful stewards of every resource entrusted to us (1 Cor. 4:2).

Character Of Service

  • Increase or decrease outreach as funds are available.
  • Avoid indebtedness (Rom. 13:8).
  • Never make our organizational survival the dominant motive for decisions (Phil. 1:19-26).
  • Avoid self-congratulation (Prov. 27:2).

Relationship To Other Ministries

  • Recognize and respect what the Lord is doing through other individuals and organizations (1 Cor. 1:10-13).
  • Avoid any affiliation that would compromise our purpose or weaken our effectiveness (2 Cor. 6:14).
  • Conduct our ministries in a way that supports and complements the local church (Eph. 4:1-7).
