Bringing about lasting change.
As a faith based organization, it is our faith and values that drive our desire to help the oppressed and neglected. However, our services are not dependent on ones religious beliefs and we strongly believe in working collaboratively with other organizations and within the wider community, to bring about effective, practical solutions to help those in need, and to ultimately bring about positive, lasting change.
We believe that we are first called to love the Lord with all our soul and mind, and then second, to love our neighbor as ourself. Jesus is our example and we desire to love like he did in all we do, humbling ourselves, extending grace and inviting people into relationship with him.
We stand on the everlasting hope we have in Christ, knowing that he is what we have to offer this world. It is this hope that, through the Holy Spirit, helps us have overflowing joy and peace in the midst of all circumstances and suffering. We point people not just to a hope of freedom in this life but to an everlasting and eternal hope in Christ.
We believe in the biblical call for justice and take seriously our call to proclaim freedom for the prisoners. As we reach out to some of societies most vulnerable people groups, we desire to bring greater levels of freedom and to seek biblical justice for all affected.
We believe that each and everyone of us is in need of God’s mercy. Standing on the power of the cross, we are filled with confidence, knowing Jesus paved a way for us to be back in right relationship with the Father. As we reach out to world around us, we believe we are called to extend this mercy to all those we meet, just as God does for us.
We believe prayer is vital, both as we seek to experience intimacy with God and as we reach out to the world around us, knowing we are completely dependent on him. We love being people who commune in his presence, and as we pray and go, we seek to get his heart for those we serve and to share his presence with all we meet.
