Built-in Employee Benefits

What We Value



Integrity is the alignment of walk, work, talk and heart. Integrity is a choice; it builds trust and demonstrates a commitment to our members, ministry partners and one another. We understand integrity in the challenge of David found in Psalm 15:2 (CSB): The one who lives blamelessly, practices righteousness, and acknowledges the truth in his heart



Our heart sets us apart from other financial services organizations. Our members’ and ministry partners’ values are our values because we are of one mind with each other. Our heart is demonstrated in our love, compassion and concern for one another and those we serve. We understand the heart in the call of Christ found in John 13:34–35 (CSB): I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.



We look to use our abilities and knowledge effectively, efficiently and competently. God has granted us the ability to work, so we seek to do so as an offering unto him. We find our reason to exist is in service with excellence. We understand skill in the words of Paul found in Colossians 3:17 (CSB): And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
