What are Core Values? What are Christian Core Values?

Core values are those values we hold which form the foundation on which we perform work and conduct ourselves.  There is an entire universe of values, but some of them are so primary, so important to us that through out the changes in society, government, politics, and technology they are STILL the core values we will abide by. 

In our ever-changing industry, these core values are constant.  Core values underlie our work, how we interact with each other, and which strategies we employ to fulfill our mission.  The core values are the basic elements of how we go about our work.  They are the practices we use (or should be using) every day in everything we do.

At Lutheran Senior Services, we have Christian Core Values. We call them Christian Core Values because they’re based on the words of Jesus. They are:

Faith Inspired

 People First

 Service Excellence

 Responsible Stewardship
