FAITH

 

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is inspired Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16).

 

The Triune God

We believe in the eternal God who has revealed Himself as ONE existing in three persons, Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit distinguishable but indivisible.

We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in God, the Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

We believe in God, the Holy Spirit, who has been at work since the beginning of creation.

 

The Church

We believe in the church, the communion of saints, the gathering of believers for worship, prayer, fellowship, and mission. We believe in the universal body of Christ which is made up of local churches around the world.

We believe water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in Jesus Christ. We believe in the celebration of the Holy Communion as a way to remember and be thankful to the Lord for His sacrifice for us on the cross.

FOUNDATION

 

The Great Commission

Making True Disciples (Matt. 28:18-20)

We take Great Commission of our Lord seriously and encourage every church to participate in mission. Every believer should be a great commission Christian and should be an every-day missionary in his own calling.

 

The Great Commandment

Loving God and Neighbors. (Matthew 22:37-39; James 1:26-27)

We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to those in spiritual and physical needs. Every Christian should serve the Lord and and serve mankind.

 

The Great Responsibility

Equipping the Church for the service of our Lord. (Ephesians 4:11,12)

The need of the hour is to equip faithful christian leaders to teach others who are qualified to teach and equip others. Eighty percent of Independent pastors in India are self-trained and biblically illiterate pastors. They do not know what they do not know. As part of the global body of Christ, we need to help the suffering brothers with prayers and support of finances and training.

 

FUNCTION

 

Equipping

Through on-field practical theological training, we equip national disciple-makers and untrained church pastors in India to help them in their evangelism and church planting ministry so that they will stand for truth in the contexts of heresies and rising opposition. We have eight courses we teach them that help them to be effective in their calling.

 

Serving Communities

We reach and serve suffering communities in Christ’s Love through social and charitable actions and set them free in Christ so that they may have hope on earth and eternity. It is the gospel that sets people free, not the corrupt systems of the world. We are helping hundreds of elderly, widows, poorer children in various states of India.

 

Effectively Reaching Others

In the age of education, technology, and opposition to Christian mission, there are cultural and contextual logistics that evangelizers need to be aware of. We provide national leaders culturally relevant and practical guidance so that they can bring people to Christ through careful contextualization. This way, their time and energy spent on the mission meaningfully.
