|Christ – centered:|
|Compelled by the love of Christ http://www.creeds.net/ancient/apostles.htm and his life giving ministry of reconciliation (John 10:10). Committed to sound biblical orthodoxy (see link off old site) and to the careful study and obedience to God’s Word (Joshua 1:8). All our programs are characterized by our desire to reveal Christ and his saving grace in obedience to his word. |
|We believe that God’s plan for humankind is to relate to him within the context of community (Deuteronomy 26:16-19, Romans 9: 25-26, Revelation 21:3). His covenant community is embodied in the local church which is the hope of the world (Matthew 16:18-19). We serve a wide variety of communities and institutions with the express purpose of influencing them towards being relevant Christ-like communities. |
|We believe we are called to understand and respond to the shifting needs of a fallen world in need of reconciliation (1 chronicles 12:32). We also believe in God’s plan for diversity that avail a variety of gifts that call for stewardship. (Acts 17:26-27). We are therefore committed to careful study, research, creativity, innovation, flexibility and the careful sharing of resources, seeking to be relevant and respectful of the contexts we work in. |
