Organizational Principles

Purpose & Mission Statement:

Let’s Start Talking’s mission and passion is to pursue Christ’s Great Commission by empowering Christians to advance the Kingdom of God in their communities and throughout the world. Since English is in demand globally, Christians partnering with LST have a unique opportunity to show the love of Christ to unbelievers while the Word speaks to open hearts. The results are more Christians confidently sharing their faith and more of the Lost entering His Kingdom.

Doctrinal Statement:

To facilitate the matching of LST Workers with LST missions sites we ask both to agree to the following statement of faith: “This statement reflects accurately my faith, my practice, and what I teach others: From Ephesians 4: 3-6 I will make every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. I believe in one body (God’s church Acts 20:28) and one Spirit (the indwelling Spirit of God Ephesians 2:22), one hope(of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ alone Titus 1:2), one Lord (Jesus Christ, Son of God, raised from the dead Romans 1:4, ascended to the Father Ephesians 4:10), one faith (a gift of God Ephesians 2:8 received by hearing the written Romans 10:13 and demonstrated Word of God Romans 1:19,20 ), one baptism (the immersion of a believer into Christ and resurrection/ new birth John 3:5 to new life Romans 6:3-4, who receives the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit Acts 2:38), one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”

Core Values:

LST Ministry seeks to demonstrate our love for God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love others as Christ has loved us. According to this standard, we hold the following values in highest regard:

Excellence In order to represent God in a way that honors Him, we believe in giving our very best effort on every occasion, going above and beyond what is commonly accepted to provide service of the highest quality in every aspect of our work.

Integrity We believe in serving one another with personal and professional integrity, demonstrating honesty, loyalty and authenticity, reflecting who we are in Christ Jesus.

Living Word We believe in the authority of the Word as the teacher, and our responsibility to illustrate the Word through our lives and relationships.

Courage We believe that God has empowered us to be strong and courageous, not afraid, but trusting in His sovereignty.

Vision We seek to act according to God’s vision for His Kingdom, striving to discern our direction within His work and to establish goals that advance His purpose.

One Another (1A) Leadership We hold each other accountable to the “one another” passages in scripture that define our roles of mutual responsibility within community, relationship, and team building.
