Unified Leadership, Empowerment of Mothers, Advancing Effective Partnerships

 

  1. Preeminence of Christ

Jesus is first and foremost in everything related to Expect Hope. He is “the head of all rule and authority” and we look to His example of absolute righteousness as the standard for moral values, attitudes, behavior, and life choices. (Colossians 1:15-23, Colossians 2:10)

  1. Authority of Scripture

The moral standard revealed by God in the Bible is absolute and informs how we are to relate to our Creator and all others. (Matthew 22:37-40) 

  1. Sanctity of Life

Each human life begins at the moment of conception, regardless of the circumstances, and every conceived child bears the image of God. The child is His creation who should be protected and cherished. (Psalm 139:13-16)

  1. Unified Leadership

God is glorified when leaders are united in the wisdom that comes from Christ Himself. We “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” by cultivating a posture that acknowledges and defers to His presence. (I Corinthians 1:30; Ephesians 4:3)

  1. Empowerment of Mothers

Mothers are empowered by the building of capital and opportunity. This includes increasing social connections, tangible property, employable skills, and laying a strong spiritual foundation, all of which results in the alleviation of economic, relational, and spiritual poverty. (Zechariah 7:9-10, Micah 6:8, Job 31:16-23)

  1. Advancing Effective Partnerships

The church, an expression of Jesus and his primary agent of change, proclaims the message of reconciliation with God and love for neighbor. We appreciate the strength and beauty that comes when all parts of the body of Christ work together to accomplish his purposes. Our partnership with Christ-honoring churches and private sponsors is a great source of encouragement as together we provide support for expectant women. (Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 8:1-15)
