"Serve one another,
each one with the gift
which he has received."
(1 Peter 4:10)
Moving the world with God.
God has moved near to us in Jesus Christ. This inspires and motivates us. His love is available to all people. That's why our desire is to let him move us, to other people, so that they also might experience faith, love and hope. In all this, we know that we can't change the world. Jesus Christ is the only one who brings change and salvation.
Working alongside Christian partner organisations and local churches, our desire is to build the church of Christ worldwide and support overrseas development. We place particular importance on being firmly rooted in Godʼs Word and on working together in partnership. Trust in God, courage, reliability, willingness to serve and creativity are values our work is built upon. By taking 1 Peter 4:10 as our guiding verse, we want to express that everyone is gifted by God, and that everyone is called to stand up for Jesus Christʼs name and for each other. We invite people to be Coworkers, contributing their gifts of prayer, donations, professional experience, time and creativity.
