Love is not just a word we throw around at Beloit Life Center, but rather actions that we take on a daily basis. Yes, this includes the social programs we are involved in, like our work with local community groups, but also in how we treat each other. It means accepting one another with all of our strengths and our flaws. We have also made a commitment in our conversations to “only bringing someone up to build them up.” It is easier to love someone when you’re not talking negatively about them. I John 3:18 says, “Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.”


Character must be cultivated. Integrity is essential. At Beloit Life Center, we challenge one another to rise above the status quo and have integrity in all of our actions. We know that it flows from the head down, which is why we believe in the transparency of our finances and accountability of our staff. Psalm 25:21 says, “May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in You.”


Community is integral to who we are. People talk all the time about how they want to make a difference in the world. We believe that changing the world starts with changing your community. At Beloit Life Center, we love Beloit and the Stateline area. We are putting this love into action by investing in our community with our time and money. Isaiah 1:17 say, “Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed…”


Education is important in both spiritual and practical things. He is the God of our mind as well as our hearts. We offer opportunities to grow in knowledge and understanding of Scripture through our School of Ministry. We also are working to create a venue for practical education in business, finance, and life skills. 2 Peter 1:5 says, “In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge.”


Purpose is essential to each of us. You have a gift, a talent and ability that is unique to you. We want to help you figure out what it is and give you a chance to use it in your personal and spiritual life, as well as your community. At Beloit Life Center, part of our mission is to help you find your strengths and natural gifts. Our staff and church family support and encourage each other in this endeavor. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”


Family isn’t just who your relatives are. God created us to be social beings. We need each other. We are also human, which means that we can be messy and difficult at times. This brings us back to our first core value, love. At Beloit Life Center, we believe that through love, forgiveness, and time spent together we become a family. We don’t care about your past, instead we are excited to be a part of your present and future. Prov. 17:17 says, “A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for adversity.”
