We lead from our values so that people live out a passionate walk with God, grow and develop, and bear lasting fruit.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. … And without faith it is impossible to please [God] ...” (Hebrews 11:1,6, English Standard Version).
Living this out means that we, as an organization, aim to keep our focus on God and not on ourselves. Because Jesus said “... for apart from Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5, ESV), we realize our need for Him in every aspect of life and ministry. We depend on His Spirit moment by moment, yielding to Him as He instructs, abiding in Him and seeking to maintain a wholehearted devotion to Him.
“Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ” (Colossians 1:28, ESV).
This value says that, as an organization, we are committed to the maturity of the people God has entrusted to us. This challenges us to develop multiplying leaders who care for people. We focus our efforts on discipleship — both in ourselves and in others — pursuing character change rather than simply completing a training program. This value refers to not only individual growth, but also our collective growth.
“... Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit … but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide ...” (John 15:5,16, ESV).
Fruitfulness means that, as an organization, we are willing to examine the results of our efforts. Specifically, we look for people to come to Christ, to be changing into conformity with Christ, and to take His message to the world. It drives us to focus on not just our activity, but also our effectiveness. Because the Lord has entrusted so much to us, we strive to be good stewards, seeking the best return for our efforts.
