Our mission is to do RESEARCH and TRAINING of community development principles and technologies, and to implement these through strategic PARTNERSHIPS in the field.

We promote biblically-sound, holistic, and sustainable development practices in order that the basic human needs of those who are disadvantaged and needy may be met.

We seek to equip missionaries and indigenous leaders with the resolve and capability to model and implement these practices in their communities, allowing the people to become the true owners of their own development.

Biblical Community Development: an approach to Christian Holistic Mission

 

Holistic Mission

 

1.     Redeem the continuity to the broken world.

2.     Witness the ultimate “converging point”: The creator and redeemer of the whole creation.

3.     Witness the hope of the Consummation

 

An individual gospel without a social gospel is soul without body,

And a social gospel without an individual gospel is a body without a soul.

One is a ghost and the other is a corpse.  E. Stanley Jones.

 

 

Need Fulfillment by Holistic Development

 

1.     There was original mandate of “development for the preservation” for the created order.

2.     The created order was disturbed by the Fall, and this necessitates the “Development for Recovery.”

3.     The creational order will provide the standard for the “Development for Recovery.”

4.     The frustration and limitation the “Current Development” in the fractured world motivated us to look beyond and actively invite the “coming” of the completerestoration at the Consummation.

Poverty means death. “Gustavo Gutierrez”

This death, however, is not only physical but mental and cultural as well.

“ HenryNowen”

 

The Spirit of the Lord is on me,

because he has anointed me

to preach good news to the poor.

He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners

and recovery of sight for the blind,

to release the oppressed,

to proclaim the year of the Lords favor. Luke 4:18-19
