1. We are Kingdom Focused
Disaster Response is an opportunity to serve those in need, creating an environment to share the gospel. It will always be our top agenda to be ministers of Hope who operate in excellence, sharing Christ and connecting those we serve to the local Church. We value a kingdom focus over our organizational or Church agendas in how we work together, relate, and operate.
2. We believe in making the local Church the Hero
We recognize that The Church is God's plan for community and life transformation. Therefore, we aim to make the local Church the resource, catalyst, and centerpiece of community hope and healing. We follow the lead and promote each local Church as the hero by connecting resource partnerships to raise their influence and expand their capacity.
3. We believe we are Better Together
We value all relationships and opportunities they bring to reach communities and share the love of Christ through the Local Church. Working together expands the impact as we draw from collective wisdom, resources, and strategies. Uniting in love, we pray, encourage, support, and elevate one another.
4. We Value Uniqueness
God has called us as individual organizations, churches, and people. Therefore, we do not seek to control, conform, or restrict any organization, Church, or person's call or vision. Instead, we believe in relational collaboration to share our gifts and strengths, seeking common ground to link arms and serve communities well.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes completed and final revelation.
The Bible is without error in whole and part; including theological truths as well as geographical and historical details.
We believe God has existed from all eternity in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God, having come in human flesh, being fully God and fully man, except without sin.
We believe all people are in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and act: and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation. The central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man’s sin through His substitutionary death on the cross and subsequent, visible, bodily resurrection.
We believe salvation is offered as a gift: free to all. The gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.
Serve Source exists to support opportunities for the gospel of Jesus Christ to be shared worldwide.
