Our Beliefs

Self-awareness is desperately needed in our day and the ability to connect, care for, and work alongside others is critical to a fulfilled life, accomplished mission, and personal joy. But Self-awareness is not salvation. The Enneagram is not the Gospel. And merely being a better person is not the ultimate goal.


What We Believe

We believe that psychology, leadership development, and soul care are tools gifted by God to help us navigate this life — but they are not the foundation and ultimate substance of life.

In Romans chapter 3, Paul states that trespass against the moral law has not only created a separation from the heart and goodness of God, but has also brought about a fallenness in mind, emotions, and will. This means that while the world is a violently dark and ominous place wreaking havoc on the psyche, the soul, and human behavior, our own inner lives rise up to contribute to this brokenness. In other words, Greytown is not only all around us, but very clearly within us. We see this reality everywhere.

Plato, perhaps unconsciously speaking from a Biblical worldview stated:

“Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge.”


Scripture is our Foundation

Jesus of Nazareth declared in the Gospels, that human wholeness is found in loving God with soul, mind, and strength. The foundation for this wholeness is the Gospel of Jesus — that He died for our sins and rose again for our liberation to be received by faith alone. This good news brings reconciliation to God and also reorients, from within, the mind, will, and emotions. The truth of Christianity is not just for the soul — it is also for the mind, the psyche, the intellect.

While Scripture is our foundation, from this foundation we gather tools to aid in the health and vitality of the heart and the head. The Enneagram is one such tool.

In it’s most simple form, the Enneagram (Ennea = 9, Gram = Diagram) is a map for self-discovery and personal growth based on 9 basic personality types. The Enneagram accurately and clearly describes why you think, feel and behave in particular ways based upon your core fears and core desires. The power of this tool is in its ability to harness and transform self-limiting behaviors into life-enhancing personal empowerment.

The Enneagram helps to provide deep insight into personal motivation, individual vice, and what health looks like in mind and soul. It aids in understanding yourself, your family, or your team, and is a powerful tool in building personal strength, relational connectedness, and team chemistry.
