Philosophy and Objectives
We believe that God brought the ministry into being, and God has sustained it. Apart from Him, we are nothing and can do nothing.
We believe God has called us to distribute materials on practical spiritual growth to people in the world who have a need to grow but who may lack the accessibility or resources to obtain such material.
We believe God has called us to be debt-free.
We believe God has called us to distribute materials without charge. We will watch Him provide for our needs and give Him the glory.
We believe God has not called us to plead for money. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills.
We also believe we have no right to be presumptuous with God's resources. He is not obligated to give us anything; He is a God of grace.
We believe God expects us to pray and fast and ask Him to provide the specific things we characterize as needs and to praise Him if He provides them, as He provides them. If He doesn't provide them, we will still praise Him, knowing they were not in His will.
We believe that growth is not, in and of itself, a mark of success; but rather, changed lives constitute the mark of success in God's eyes.
We believe our mission field is the world, and whenever God allows it, we will seek to go first to those with the greatest needs and trust Him to provide the resources to do so.
We believe our God is a miracle-working God who does not desire that any should perish, and who desires that all believers might "know Him, the power of His resurrection, the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death." (Philippians 3:10) By His grace, we want to be used to see the lost saved and believers grow.
We believe that printed materials, audio and audio/visual formats, radio broadcasts and the internet are the primary tools He has given us to date to use in reaching people. We desire to be sensitive to new opportunities, such as new countries and languages, as He leads.
We believe that all praise and glory belong to Jesus Christ, and that any glory we share with Him is blasphemy. "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory, forever." (Romans 11:36)
