OUR VISION: Healthy Families Glorifying God
Why Are We Called Eden Mission?
Eden is a reference to the Garden of Eden where God created the institution of marriage and family. At Eden Mission we believe families are important to God. God never intended us to live individualistic lives. He meant for us to live and grow and be part of a family. As a ministry, we believe healthy families will bring light and hope to a hurting land. Our mission is to improve the lives of families so they can in turn help other families like them.
We believe in being above reproach. Our integrity helps build trust with the people we work with. We build trust through our competence and convictions.
We do everything to the best of our abilities, knowing that we represent God through our actions and words.
We strongly believe that what we do is not FOR people, not TO people, but rather WITH people. Our intent is to do everything we can in order to help our brothers and sisters lead God-glorifying, successful lives.
We believe that all people are of infinite value, regardless of age, race, development, appearance or ability.
The Bible doesn't call us to discuss or lament human need and social injustice. God's Word calls us to action. "Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves...a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing." (James 1:22-25)
We limit our opportunities to fulfill this scripture when we attempt to define who our neighbor is. Our neighbor is any person in need that God has placed on our heart. God's servants are a resource He uses to meet the needs of His people. Beginning with the first man and woman, God created the family to be the foundation of His earthly kingdom.
Eden Mission's purpose is to cultivate the holistic empowerment of the family to create fellowships of believers who will work alongside their God to free other families from spiritual and economic bondage. Eden Mission plans to complete this work to benefit our neighbors and bring glory to God.
Eden Mission is an Evangelical, Non-Denominational, Bible-based ministry. In short this is what we believe:
- We believe the Holy Scripture is God's own Word, written by men and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
- We believe there is but one God: eternal, infinite, perfect and unchangeable.
- We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is God.
- We believe the Holy Spirit is the active agent in our sanctification, seeking to produce His fruit in us.
- We believe one is saved by the grace of God.
- We believe Jesus who ascended to heaven will return.
- We believe in the resurrection and judgement of the saved and the lost.
- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all believers are members of His body.
- We believe evangelism is a responsibility of both the church and of each individual Christian.
