Before we are or do anything, we seek to obediently follow the leadership of God as seen in the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Following his leadership, we recognize two directions in which we must be faithful – to God and to other people.

Faithful to God

Before we express love in the world, God expresses God’s self.  In participating in the life of God, we participate in Love.  Whatever concern we have for our fellow human originates in the heart of God, and however we design our successes, God has already understood what our success might look like.  We seek to participate in the life of God as expressed in the person of Jesus Christ, and we seek to follow God’s leadership in loving and serving the world.  Further, we do not consider ourselves as unique experts in the work we conduct, but rather seek to remain open to insights into our work from all who are informed by love and knowledge.
