We partner to continue a history in making a difference locally and overseas.
From the early days contributing to local Adelaide City Mission (now Mission Australia) and supporting global endeavours in Bolivia, Sri Lanka and Brazil, our commitment is to continue to go into all the world. A summary of our partnership commitments are shown below.
We have chosen to answer calling of the Word and proclaim the name of Jesus to all nations. Having a heart and passion to go to the nations takes us to many places. Our commitment is to send support, to pray and to remember those who go, but just as important is our willingness to go, serve and be in the nations.
Purpose in partnership
Clarity of purpose can be conveyed through clear vision. Clear vision should never be new of itself. Rather, a clear vision reflects God’s given calling to another generation. A clear vision should be obvious, connecting our past to a future that inspires and directs our present – all within our specific and unique calling of the Lord. We are sent by Jesus to make a difference. And making a difference in Christ means accomplishing more than we could dream, because He has gone before us.
"…anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works...” John 14:12
Our partnerships therefore require faith, commitment and sacrifice. We are clarified our hopes by stating our commitment to partnerships with a 5 year plan. Our plan contains hope that encourages us to stretch in love, and to act with faithfulness to our calling. Our partnerships call for open hands and prayerful hearts looking 5 years onward from 2018 until 2023.
But while we plan, we know that real life will challenge us, possibly requiring adjustments over time, so we trust the Lord for the right answers in all situations.
We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer. Pr 16:1
We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Pr 16:9
Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. Pr 16:3
Our plan is a practice of our vision. We look to the Lord in order to take steps to follow Him in faith, now, and as the years unfold. And we trust that these actions are committed to the Lord, and through His answers and taking His steps, we know that we shall succeed.
