It is important to have a set of Core Values that are the underpinning of what you do. Below are the Core Values that drive Neighborhood Transformation. Groups who are committed to Neighborhood Transformation will only start with a couple of values and grow as they get deeper into NT.

Commitment to the Poor and Marginalized: Jesus came to preach good news to the poor. As His ambassadors, we are committed to them, affirm their worth, call them to be children of God through faith in Christ, and seek to release them from brokenness and despair.
