Definition – A value is something important, valuable, or desirable.

Jesus told a parable in which he said the kingdom of heaven is like an executive who was looking for fine pearls. When the executive found a pearl of great value, he returned home and sold everything in order to purchase that one pearl (Matthew 13:45-46). The following values represent those things that we treasure at NLC.
