Beliefs and Values

Declaration of Belief

WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE in God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all those who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE in the deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His atoning death through His outpoured blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return to power and glory.

WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

WE BELIEVE the Bible to be inspired in its entirety by God’s Holy Spirit through human authors revealing God’s truth to humanity. It is without error in all that it affirms. Christians must therefore submit to its supreme authority.

WE BELIEVE in the personal and visible return in glory of the Lord Jesus Christ to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment in final completion.

WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.

Values

A) Christ-Centered

We are committed to wholeheartedly pursuing Christ, following His example, and obeying His commandments. Our goal and prayer as we share the gospel and minister those we work with are that they too will come to know Christ more deeply and live out the same commitment to Christ’s call on their life.

B) Team Building

We believe that all members of our team, including short-term volunteers and long-term staff members, are made in the image of God and should be respected. We work with people from many different backgrounds and so strive to make everyone feel welcome and a part of the team. We seek to use diversity as a strength, making the best use of a wide range of talents and viewpoints. We believe no one is superior but we are all fellow heirs with Christ and are equals.

C) Collaboration and Partnership

We believe in unity in the body of Christ. We can advance the kingdom of God by working and partnering with others in East Africa like churches, schools, clubs, and people from countries all over the world.

D) Innovation and Entrepreneurship

We believe that a problem is not impossible to solve just because one solution does not work. God has gifted us with an inventive and creative mind like His so we are always looking for new opportunities and solutions to current problems.

E) Excellence and Professionalism

We believe we should constantly aim to excel first in our personal walks with Christ and then in our ministry work for the glory of God and the advancement of His kingdom.

F) Integrity

We believe in being good stewards of God’s resources. We commit to the efficient use of resources, full accountability and transparency to our partners, supporters, and the public.
