The Seven Points of Valor
New England Frontier Camp continues to build men for the future by leading them to a saving knowledge of Christ, mentoring them, and instilling in them a foundation based on seven core values: Honor, Courage, Chivalry, Purity, Loyalty, Obedience, and Dedication. These seven points are the basis for building men of good character, and are is rooted in the traditions of Christian Service Brigade.
A man of honor is a man of integrity; he guards every word and action against any falsehood.
Ephesians 4:25 says, “Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.”
A man of courage is one whose strength of mind enables him to overcome any fear or danger.
Joshua 1:9 says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
A man who is chivalrous shows respect for others. He is considerate and puts others before himself.
Philippians 2:3 and 4 says, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
A man who is pure is clean in heart, mind, speech and body.
Psalm 119:9 through 11 says, "How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart. Do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
A man who is loyal is one who is true in affections and allegiance.
1 Corinthians 15:58 says, "Therefore my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourself fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."
An obedient man is one who follows the commands of God’s Word and complies with the wishes of those in authority over him.
Psalms 119:33-34 says, “Teach me, oh Lord, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart.”
A dedicated man is one who has committed his whole self to Jesus Christ.
Romans 12:1-2 says, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. This is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is; his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”
