Jesus Christ is our all in all. In Him we are complete. Ministry is not an end in itself, but the outflow of our personal relationship with Christ.
2. The biblical Gospel
The method that God uses for the conversion and transformation of lives is the biblical Gospel. Just to plant churches is not enough. Planting churches is in vain if they are not deeply rooted in the biblical and historical “faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 1:3b) The accurate understanding of God’s message will also determine effective missionary methodology.
Compassion is the fruit of genuine faith. Is is also the nature of God. If we genuinely know God, we will love others and care for those in need. The conviction of Gospel truth always impacts every area of life, both spiritual and physical.
4. The guidance of the Holy Spirit
Where we work and how is not determined by ourselves but by the Holy Spirit. We determine His guidance through the Word of God and through God’s providence when great needs, great opportunities and an ability to help intersect.
Because the task of making disciples of all nations is far beyond our own ability, we must devote ourselves to continual prayer. Through prayer, we remain dependent upon the Spirit who alone can do the work.
6. Church planting
The Church, established in every locality, is God’s instrument in reaching out to the world. Often, mass evangelistic efforts only produce quick and superficial decisions leading to false conversions. the local church’s influence; however, is not short term or haphazard. Each biblically based church is a beachhead from which the Gospel continues to be preached and disciples taught.
