Financial Principles

  1. Every need of this ministry will be obtained through prayer. We may share our missionary vision with others and even make known to them the specific tasks that the Lord has laid on our hearts to do, but we may not raise support through prodding or manipulating our brothers and sisters in Christ. If this ministry is of the Lord, then He will be our Patron. If He is with us, He will direct His people to give, and we will prosper. If He is not with us, we will not and should not succeed.
  2. We will never enlarge or sustain this ministry by contracting debts. This is contrary to both the letter and the spirit of the New Testament. In prayer and God helping us, we will carry the needs of this ministry to the Lord and act according to the direction that He gives.
  3. We will not compete with other biblical mission agencies; but will use the resources that God has given to us to work in partnership with them. If the Lord directs, we will sacrifice our own goals and resources in order that other mission works may be helped and the Kingdom of God increased.
  4. We will not measure the success of this ministry by the growth in “numbers” (i.e. amount of programs run, participants, outreaches, people reached out or the amount of money given in support). Rather, we will judge our usefulness to the Kingdom by our faithfulness to the Scriptures in doctrine and practice.
  5. Our Goal is not to enlarge ourselves or to become a key figure in the Great Commission but to be faithful and obedient stewards according to the grace that is given to us.
