My Beliefs

I fully affirm World Team's 4 Core Values as central to Christian life and ministry:

1. The gospel. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to be saved from our sin, and it is the foundation of our walk with God from the day we are saved by it, into eternity.

2. Prayer and worship. We are made to live in relationship to our creator God, and prayer and worship are integral components to that relationship. Prayer expresses our dependence on God, and worship expresses our adoration of his person, work, and worth.

3. Interdependence. Man is made to live in relation to one another, and our interdependence is best lived out in the context of the local church, where God sanctifies his people, transforming us into a holy dwelling place for his presence (Eph 2:22).

4. Developing & releasing leaders. God is faithful to raise up indigenous leaders in his church all around the world, and it is pleasing to God when the church recognizes, develops, and releases biblically qualified leaders to serve as ministers of the gospel.
