Three of the most important values for Faithful Nails is maintaining the concept that people matter and through developing solid relationships through our business doings we can deliver exceptional services as well as sustain accordingly. However, this concept was selected as the first core value because we value people. Of course without human interaction we cannot actively connect and establish ourselves as a company.
Secondly, since we are designed to create and serve our fellow man/woman. We value creating a working environment that reflects principle and trust. Again, we strive to exercise our talents and gifts accompanied with our internal beliefs, which displays our commitment to serving others. Moreover, this idea was chosen as a second value because it illustrates how we will go about assisting those that matter.
And thirdly, we want to inspire and share with the intention of building and strengthening our brand as well as our partners and customers. We value excellence as our third core. Faithful Nails thrives on providing exceptional creations, quality service within our distinctive structure.
Overall, we have come to the conclusion that without establishing a foundation of values, we would struggle while developing a sound business strategy. Surely, acknowledging the financial aspect, investigating possible legal structures and securing a great location are critical parts of starting a business, nevertheless embracing an esteem regard for relationships will carry our plan to succeed to soar relationally. Also, if the company fails to affirm values, how will we invite our partners, staff and customers towards our company?

My three most important core values are doing the work of God with a spirit of excellence, maintaining Christ-centered integrity at the foundation of all that I do, and building lasting relationships that point people to Christ with all people I meet.
It is very important to me that I do the work of God with a spirit of excellence. In the vocational space, which is predominantly where the Lord is using me, it is important that my work and conduct have the spirit of excellence that my ancestor Daniel had. If I have an excellent reputation for work, conduct and integrity, people are likely to view me with a high regard. Therefore, when the time comes to minister or credit God for my success, my words hold a bit more weight before I am someone who has garnered respect and cultivated genuine relationships with my peers. If I am sloppy and careless and lack integrity, then at the very attempt to credit God, I will consequently get eye-rolls--and understandably so. I take it seriously that I am God's representative in the workplace, and that people should see something different.
Additionally, it is important that I maintain Christ-centered integrity at the foundation of all that I do. Again, my integrity in the work place should be a light. God's wisdom should emanate from my decision-making. I believe that my colleagues should be in awe at my integrity and level of wisdom, despite my age, in the same way that Timothy was described in 1 Timothy 4:12 "Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity."
Lastly, in the marketplace and beyond, I focus on establishing meaningful and genuine relationships with those that I meet and have the pleasure to work with. They should see the Light of Christ, and Love of Christ in me...even if they do not realize this is what they are encountering. When you build meaningful relationships, once given the opportunity to credit God, people tend to be more receptive, value your views, and probably even find what you are saying believable. All three of these values are important to me, and are an important part of my daily life.

Mosaic's three core values are as follows, and each is important for the organization:

Faith: We value a solid foundation of faith in the triune God of Scriptures, holding fast to prayer, worship, community, discipleship, hospitality and the Holy Bible being the inspired Word of God. We believe that honesty should be the core of Mosaic and that each student is to be above reproach, ethically and morally minded and have integrity in the face of injustice.
Leadership: Mosaic is determined to raise up a generation of leaders for future ministry, to re-train those currently in ministry and to equip and empower survivors of exploitation with practical tools to raise up in their workplaces.

Holistic ministry: Mosaic holds strongly to the holistic view of theology in ministry, with our theological vision being the gospel presented in a restorative way for those who have experienced injustice or are working in that field. This holistic approach will encompass the different workers and clients within that respective field.

These three values are placed in this order because without faith as the primary foundation, you cannot focus on holistic ministry and leadership without missing the key to future success. Building off a foundation of faith, and seeking leadership and holistic ministry that is cultivated in truth is a core value of Mosaic.

Gospel Enterprise Ministries (GEM) presses utmost value in God and his revelation through Scripture for our daily services and operations. As a Christian ministry, our duty is to remind each other that our God created each and every person in his image (Gen. 1:27). The implication of this is for us to put full effort in making him truly known and reconciling people back to the creator (2 Cor. 2:18).

Our effort is shared in these three coexisting values.
1. Proper Relationships (Matthew 22:37-39): We model proper relationships with God and fellow people in ministry. We point people to God and he regenerate their image so that they see the sanctity and value of the other people.
2. Stewardship (1 Peter 4:10): We believe that God has put resources in our hands for our progress. God made everything else before he created man. It followed that what God had created, he placed in the hands of man (Gen. 1:28-30, 2:15). Our duty is to be good stewards of what we have in order to maximize our potential of glorying God in the middle of this sinful world.
3. Competence (2 Timothy 4:7): We strive for the best to everybody while holding strongly to biblical standards. We are in the world not as underdogs, but we are here representing the King of Kings. Our duty is to pour out our best and be the best in our callings in his strength (Matthew 28:18-20).

Our core values:

1) Gospel Culture - We value Gospel culture. We hope we can spread the culture of the gospel through the Christian music performances so that listeners of believers can enjoy music as well as their fellowship with God. We also pray that through the Christian music performance the seed of faith might be planted in the hearts of the listeners who have not yet accepted the truth so that we can share the gospel with them when the God opens the door or the seed of faith planted in their hearts might sprout in some way in the future according to God's timing. We believe the musicians who spread the gospel culture are the ones who have not only highly developed skill but also the spirituality that comes from their daily enjoyment of the gospel.

2) Community - We value community. We hope we can create the community of Christian music lovers. We also wish we can make the community of the musicians who have genuine faith in Christ and make music-performing-disciples who can share the gospel as they spread the gospel culture through music performance.

3) Atmosphere - We value the atmosphere. We hope we can provide the ideal atmosphere in which the Christian listeners can enjoy music and their fellowship with God. We also pray that in such atmosphere the unbelieving listeners may open up their heart to the Lord.

Galatians 5:14
For the whole of the Torah is summed up in this one statement: “Love your neighbor as yourself”;

My 3 most important values for United Kingdom Church is really summed up in one value just as all of the commandments can be summed up in one commandment. As a church and body our values are summed up in loving HIM and seeking to make HIM known: A love for the MESSIAH and a passion for HIS glory. As a result of having this value, we will strive to be excellent, build relationships, be adaptable and be every good thing possible for the good of all people.

Though it is hard to choose only three core values, I ended up deciding on these three. Innovation, Excellence, Empowerment

I am innovative in the way I approach life. If my way is not working, I will search and try new things until I find one that works. Within the company, we will seek to discover new ways to make food ethnically. We will look to train our employees in new, innovative methods and learn more about global foods from them. We will completely rewrite what it means to be a restaurant with innovative ways.
I strive for excellence in all I do. I am a bit of a perfectionist, and that is what drives me to do better than I am doing and be better than the mediocre goals that others have set for me. In this way, we will make excellent food, we will serve our customers with excellence, and train our staff and employees to exude excellence in every aspect of their life.
I am and have been empowered by many people, by myself, and through my faith. I know that through the power of Jesus, all things are possible. Through the school, I seek to empower refugees to be more than just someone who needs things. With training, they can be innovators in the culinary world, entrepreneurs with fresh, new ideas, ready to change the world--like I desire to.
