These nine codes represented are:
- We believe in being a company built around the Kingdom of God. From the customer to the individual, from the individual to the teams, and from the teams to the company; Kinektt is here to engage in a Christian focused atmosphere that provides a safe place for Christian users to communicate, grow in their faith, and find new connections around the world.
- Everyone is open to introducing new ideas and being creative in thinking to bring out the best.

Dare to be Different:
- We experiment above average and encourage failing forward while steering away from consistent failure. We do this through coaching, ongoing learning, and strategies to be a customer-centric company that is driven towards the result of building the Christian community.
