Organizational Principles

Purpose & Mission Statement:

Mercy Partners was formed for exclusively Christian charitable and educational purposes. Specifically, Mercy Partners educates the general public about the humanitarian and spiritual needs of people that reside in conflict zones and creates service programs within those zones that foster immediate care and sustainable aid. We also train native evangelist to care for their local people. Mercy Partners publishes and sends out articles of interest to people who have subscribed, announcements about upcoming Mercy Missions, guidance for volunteers and donors. Mercy Partners runs entirely by volunteers. Mercy Partners has established a safe network of churches within the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) which serve as a distribution point of humanitarian aid and medicine as well as a place of worship and educational centers. We aid in organizing native outreach for the eradication of parasite infestation within refugee camps and elsewhere ( IDP's) from Darfur, South Sudan, Uganda and Kenya. We train evangelist that have a heart towards the depravity of their own people to serve in the capacity of distributing aid and lead in education.

Doctrinal Statement:

• The Bible is the all sufficient guide to becoming a friend of God and maintaining that friendship - individually and corporately. • The Death, Burial and Resurrection of God's only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, created the passage that all mankind can unite with their creator. • It is only when we die to self and submit to being buried with Christ, ( Rom 6:4) that we receive salvation and God's indwelling Holy Spirit. • This burial is physical and spiritual at the same time, the physical immersion of the body led by the submitting of the human will. On the occasion that we are immersed, we are saved from sin and enter a covenant, an agreement, as we continue to submit to God's Holy Spirit which guides us in all truth. Outside of this death, there is no entry or identity in Christ Jesus.

Core Values:

accountability "Without accountability there is no dignity." - mp

availability "Jesus made himself available for us to receive Mercy so that we may become available to provide Mercy to others." - mp

vulnerability " Jesus took on the humble form of a servant, we too, may have license to share Christ when we become vulnerable to the people we serve"-mp
