Our Need for God
·God loves us and the proof of his love is Jesus Christ. We believe that each person ultimately finds their needs met in a relationship with Jesus Christ and we follow his model in caring for people by meeting physical needs and pointing out our need for a relationship with God through Jesus.
The Priority of Prayer
·We recognize that God’s leading is important and therefore we sustain this ministry with prayer.
The Importance of Fiscal Responsibility & Accountability
·We are stewards and trustees of God’s resources and people’s trust so we will have the highest ethical standards in finances and relationships.
The Need to Invest in Sustainable Impact
·We recognize the importance of taking on projects that are sustainable over a long period of time. Therefore we will invest time, energy and resources into projects that are of the highest quality, reproducible and economically sound. We will also seek to implement ways of expanding and lengthening impact in the people and communities we invest in.
The Importance of Healthy Partnerships
·We believe in coming alongside people to help them help themselves so we enter into partnerships which make this possible.
The Need for Cultural Sensitivity & Respect
·Humility is one of our most important values. We are fellow learners, friends, and co-workers.
The Creation of Reproducible Models
·We believe that the road to success means creating a model which can be used in other places. While no two situations are exactly alike, there are things that we believe are transferable and models which can help us help more people.
As we plan and prepare for future mission trips it is important for us to keep these values in mind, particularly the first two because they lay the foundation for God’s work in us and through us.
