All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
While we never “arrive” in this life (Philippians 3:12), the ‘CORE’ level is for those who are well on their way in becoming complete, thoroughly equipped, as evidenced by the following:

- Has discovered, developed and is using their Spiritual Gifts.
- Has learned to effectively share their faith, while demonstrating a radical love that amazes those it touches.
- Gives evidence of being:
- humble in spirit
- a faithful member of God’s church
- a willing minister to others, including “the least of these”
- ability to effectively manage their lives, relationships and resources
5. Demonstrates a life characterized as:
- worship focused
- morally pure
- evangelistically bold
- discipleship grounded
- family faithful
