What We Believe

  1. Core Values
    1. With regard to theology:
      1. We value God's creation, the image of God in all people, and Christ's rule over all through the empowering work of the Holy Spirit.
      2. We value Christ's work of salvation confessing that the cross and resurrection provide forgiveness of sins, reconciliation, and shalom as Christians wait for our full redemption when Christ returns.
    2. With regard to mission:
      1. We value 2 Timothy 2:2 as central to our mission: "And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others."
      2. We value healthy congregations and communities worldwide which show evidence of increased faith, generosity, and productive work.
      3. We value the gifts and ministries of all God's people developed through leadership training, particularly for those who do not have access to formal education.
    3. With regard to training:
      1. We value training that is Biblically based, culturally sensitive, and well adapted to oral cultures.
      2. We value a holistic curriculum that includes, but is not limited to, training in pastoral care, stewardship, preaching, education, worship, productive living, and social justice.
      3. We value training participants from multiple Christian traditions because we value collaboration and partnership.
      4. We value inductive, participatory training and action planning.
    4. With regard to leadership:
      1. We value Biblical stewardship and Christian leadership practiced with integrity.
      2. We value healthy sustainability, not unhealthy dependency.
