EVERY NATION MISSION STATEMENT:
We exist to honor God by establishing Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered, socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.
STATEMENT OF FAITH: World Evangelical Alliance
We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His Personal return in power and glory.
The Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ.
The Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
EVERY NATION CORE VALUES
Our core values describe how we build. Whether we are building a core group, a music team, or a new church, these core values are the essential issues.
We value obedience.
Because Jesus is “King of kings and Lord of lords,” we believe that whole-hearted submission to God’s will and His Word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.”
Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him . . .
– Colossians 2:6
We value lost people.
Because God’s heart is to reach the lost, we seek to build churches primarily through evangelism – not transfer, through birth – not adoption.
For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.
– Luke 19:10
We value spiritual growth.
Because we are called to make disciples, our primary focus is ministering to people, not conducting meetings, administrating programs, or building buildings.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
We value leadership development.
Because we are called to raise up spiritual leaders, we prioritize leadership training and deliberately create opportunities for young potential leaders to develop their gifts.
. . . and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
– 2 Timothy 2:2
We value long-term relationships.
Because the family is the foundation and validation for all ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal success. And because we believe God has called us to be a spiritual family, we reject the idea of disposable relationships and choose to walk in love, respect and unity.
. . . eager to maintain the unity of the Spirity in the bond of peace.
– Ephesians 4:3
