Core Values are the "how” that the Welton Academy operates by. 

The Welton Academy is not an hierarchy; we are a team. As a team, these values influence how we do everything we do. The Welton Academy has seven core values.
We have the highest respect for understanding and applying the Bible correctly. By having Biblical as a value, we have made a commitment to constant growth and change. We are willing to change our thinking, even hundreds or thousands of time.
By understanding the Bible correctly and living according to it, we have a high value for walking in the supernatural. To claim to have a high value for the Bible and not walk in the supernatural is a bizarre form of hypocrisy.
We hold a high value for being transparent, vulnerable, valuing relationships, and standing up for people. We will be relational leaders and leave a trail of Sons and Daughters behind us, not orphans.  
We value the Fruit of the Spirit as much as we value the Gifts of the Spirit. We are not soft on sin, but we are strong in grace and love as the true answer.
Empowering others
We do not believe in the "Man of God, holier than thou, big man on the platform” model of ministry. Empowering others is at the core of everything we do. We believe that real Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers are first and foremost Equippers and Foot-washers (Eph. 4, John 13). Our heart is to see others step into their New Creation Identity, fullness of freedom and walking out their calling.
We believe that Jesus died to give us freedom; therefore freedom should be valued and guarded. Everything we teach is intended to bring freedom through truth. Also, "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom;” so our team believes that where I am, there is complete freedom. I carry a zone of freedom.
Investing is long-term thinking. This impacts every aspect of life. Although it may cost more, buying quality only hurts you once. It is better to do something right the first time rather than to do it twice.
We believe that time is an un-renewable resource. There is always more money, but there is not more time. Operating in long-term thinking is king thinking, whereas short-term thinking is slave thinking. 
"A Righteous man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children.”
