We are a people of His presence, a people of service, and a loving family.
Glad Tidings, Omaha’s center-city church, is a multicultural Christian congregation that meets in the Aksarben area. Our name means, “Good News.”
Our Core Values:
Presence – Encounter and Intimacy
The presence of God is our primary pursuit. We believe we owe the human race an encounter with God. It is our primary classroom, public relations initiative and therapeutic model of healing, both physically and emotionally.
Purpose – Identity and Intentionality
No man will be fulfilled until they fulfill the purpose for which they were made. Discovery of one’s identity and assignment is the key to discovering purpose. Knowing who we are enables us to live with great intentionality. Our identity is our destiny in seed form. It provides a plumb-line by which we evaluate every opportunity.
Passion (Wholeheartedness) – Sacrifice and Enjoyment
Because we have met Him and know who we are, we throw ourselves into our assignment. We are willing to sacrifice our own comfort for the fulfillment of His purposes through us. Passion has evolved into two separate definitions, ecstatic joy and deep sacrifice. The Christian life is a paradox encompassing both.
Power – Effectiveness and Empowerment
Effectiveness – we refuse to accept a powerless faith, a Christianity of resignation to a fallen world rather than holy revolt, overturning every effect of the fall. We contend for power and release it to our generation.
Empowerment – Christianity is supernatural.
God empowers us to miraculously do what would be absolutely impossible without Him. We strive to be like Him, empowering those around us. In the Kingdom, everyone gets to do the stuff.
Principle – Word Based
We base our lives upon the principles of God’s Word. It is the plumb line by which we measure every encounter, revelation and experience. It is the standard we hold our behavior and attitudes to. It is the inerrant Word of God. We are firm believers in both Divine revelation and ardent study.
