At the Y, we have a clear mission: to improve the lives of all in Central Florida by connecting individuals, families and communities with opportunities based on Christian values that strengthen Spirit, Mind and Body. As a Christian non-profit movement, we strive every day to demonstrate the YMCA founding Bible verse of John 17:21 creating unity in our community and showing the love of Christ by serving, encouraging and caring for the needs of our members and neighbors.
Our core values unite us as a movement. They are the shared beliefs and essential principles that guide our behavior, interactions with each other and decision-making. The five values of the YMCA of Central Florida are:
Show a sincere concern for others- Luke 10:27
Be truthful in what you say and do- Proverbs 19:1, 21:28
Follow the golden rule- Matthew 7:12, 1 Peter 2:17
Be accountable for your promises and actions- Galatians 6:4-5
Be seekers of truth, to trust God with your life, to be sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see – Hebrews 11:6
