PATH OF CHRIST MISSION is a "Gospel community" that is:
- Committed to
We are committed to biblical truth and joyfully affirm historic, evangelical Christianity. With courage, we declare to the nations the good news of new life in Jesus Christ.
"By Prayer" and in faith we depend on God for the provision of all our needs. We will demonstrate diligence, integrity,
sharing, and accountability in cultivating and using the resources God provides.
Prayer is foundational
in our life and ministry. "By Prayer" we praise God, seek his direction, request resources, and call upon the Holy Spirit to empower our ministries.
We are committed to the urgent and unfinished task of making disciples of Jesus Christ in all nations. In doing this we desire to work in loving, trusting, interdependent relationships with churches and other partners
who share our vision.
We are committed to being a Mission that begins, nurtures, and equips churches to be
the expression of Christ in their communities and to reach out with cross-cultural missionary vision and action.
- Concerned About Human Needs
We humbly acknowledge that the ultimate human need is to know God. We also believe that he has called us to compassionate, holistic service in this broken world by alleviating suffering, fostering development, and effecting change in society.
We desire to be a transforming community dedicated to becoming like Christ in love, servanthood, holiness, and
obedience to the Father. We believe that following Christ's example means sacrifice, sometimes hardship, and perhaps even death.
- A Learning, Growing Community
We believe in the worth and giftedness of each person in SIM and of those we seek to serve. We practise the giving and receiving of discipleship, life-long learning, consultative leadership, mutual development, and training as enduring
We will respond with creativity and courage to evolving needs and opportunities under
the guidance of the Holy Spirit. To be effective and relevant, our ministries, priorities, and structures are subject to ongoing evaluation and adaptation.
