Doctrinal Statement:

We believe… 1. In one Holy, Almighty God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, each with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being. Biblical References:Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-2, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Philippians 2:6 2. In the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Old and New Testaments; that they are infallible, inerrant in the original writings and the final authority for faith and life. Biblical References: 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Matthew 5:18, John 16:12-13 3. That the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, without ceasing to be God, became man by the Holy Spirit and virgin birth; that he lived a sinless life on earth; that he died at Calvary as a satisfactory substitutionary sacrifice for sinners; that his body was buried in and arose from the tomb; that he ascended to heaven and was glorified as a man at God’s right hand; that he is coming again for his own and then to set up his Kingdom. Biblical References: John 1:1, Matthew 1:20-23, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 1:3, Hebrews 10:12, John 16: 7-11, Matthew 19:28, Matthew 25:31, 2 Timothy 2:8 4. That the Holy Spirit is a divine person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; that he is that supernatural agent in regeneration by whom all believers are baptized into the body of Christ; that he indwells and seals them until the day of redemption. He is the divine teacher and helper who guides believers into all truth; it is the privilege of all believers to be filled with the Spirit. Biblical References: John 16:7-15, 1 Corinthians 12:13, 2 Corinthians 1:22, Ephesians 1:13 5. That God created man in his own image and in the state of innocence. Through Adam’s transgression, “sin entered the world, and death through sin;” consequently, mankind inherited a corrupt nature, being born in sin and under condemnation. As soon as men are capable of moral action, they become actual transgressors in thought, word and deed. Biblical References: Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 5:12, Romans 3:23, 1 John 1:8, Ephesians 2:3 6. That salvation is a gift of God brought to man by grace and received only through personal repentance for sin and faith in the person and the finished work and atoning blood of Jesus Christ. Biblical References: Ephesians 1:7, Ephesians 2:1-10, John 1:12 7. In the bodily resurrection of men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to everlasting punishment. That the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where, in conscious bliss, they await the first resurrection when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord. Biblical References: Revelation 20, Acts 24:25, John 5:28-29, Luke 16:19-31, 2 Corinthians 5:8, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17, 1 John 3:2 8. That the church universal is a spiritual organism composed of the regenerated who are baptized into that body by the Holy Spirit at the time of the new birth. The local church, as the visible manifestation of the body, has the responsibility to provide for the fellowship and edification of believers and to propagate the gospel into the world. Biblical References: Acts 2, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 5:27, Mark 16:15 http://www.twr.org/about/doctrine_and_values.html

Core Values:

God’s Word (2 Tim. 3:16) We believe in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Old and New Testaments; that they are infallible, inerrant in the original writings, and the final authority for faith and life.

Prayer & Faith (Jer. 33:3) We are committed to God’s direction for our ministry through prayer, which is our most fundamental demonstration of worship and dependence on the Lord. As a faith mission, our planning and daily work is permeated by fervent prayer as we discern and submit ourselves to God’s leading.

Integrity (Psalm 41:12) We are committed to the development of Christian character and a Christlike manner in all that we do, living and working above reproach.

Church (Col. 1:24) We believe the local church is the unique and divinely ordained instrument on earth in God’s purpose to glorify Himself.

Excellence (Phil. 4:8) In all our ministries, we seek excellence that is reflected in the quality of our personnel and in the efficient use of the most appropriate technology in ministry.

Accountability (2 Cor. 8:21) We are committed to pursue the highest ethical standards to ensure the stewardship of time, resources and relationships entrusted to us are responsibly accounted for before God.

Partnerships (Rom. 12:4-5) We are committed to partnership with like-minded mission organizations, indigenous and sending churches for follow-up, discipleship, leadership, multiplication and church planting.

Respect (Rom.12:10) We are committed to the dignity of individuals. We are committed to our stakeholders (employees, partners, cooperative broadcasters, individual investors, churches, listeners) who are both our equals, and whom God has called as His choice servants to join in the Kingdom work.

Servant Attitude (Eph.6:7) We are servants of our Lord Jesus Christ. We give ourselves to the highest good for our brothers and sisters in Christ, enabling them to advance the vision and strategies which God has entrusted to us and them in their communities, cities, countries and regions.

Innovation (Psalm 96:3) We are committed to a collaborative spirit characterized by creativity, appropriate and innovative technologies, openness to risk, aggressive expansion, proactive attitudes, and application of biblical truth to changing needs.
