Our stated values in Ground Level are that ‘we fulfil our mission through relationship, partnership, resourcing and Word and Spirit’. In this paper, we want to explore and unpack what our value of being Word and Spirit does and, just as important, doesn’t mean. The purpose and aim of this paper is three-fold: to challenge us all honestly to assess if we are valuing Word and Spirit in both doctrine, and equally, in practice; to inspire and encourage us with the power and the possibilities in God as we pioneer local churches that value Word and Spirit; and, finally, to equip us with a biblical rationale for why we should value being Word and Spirit. To help achieve this we will ask three questions; What does it mean to value Word and Spirit? Why should we value being Word and Spirit? How can we continue and increasingly be a network of local churches that value being Word and Spirit?
