The overriding principle of our lives as Christians is the recognition of God's supremacy. We commune with Him in prayer, we expect divine guidance and intervention, and we seek to make ourselves available for His use.
Humble dependence on God should characterise our Christian life. By living Spirit-filled lives, we expect to see God move through us as a ministry and as individuals to accomplish the tasks He has given us and help build His Kingdom.
Demonstrated unity speaks loudly to the people of our time. As we move forward to accomplish God's work, we need to love and embrace one another as brothers and sisters in the faith. This starts within our own organisation, but also sets the standard for cooperation with others.
No matter how professional, well planned or strategic our activities may be, they still need to be relevant to the people of today. We need to communicate and act in ways that are culturally appropriate, understandable and attractive, but without compromising on biblical values.
The result of our work should be visible in fruit as defined by God's Word. Our hope is to see conversion, changed lives, church growth and evidence of spiritual maturity in individuals. This causes us to evaluate the work we do, willing and ready to adjust our strategies.
Two obvious signs of growth should be spiritual multiplication and the existence and expansion of our movements. We also want to see our staff, volunteers and disciples actively growing in their faith, and the growth of our organisational capacity to keep pace with our movements.
