Our Values

The Example of Jesus

as we serve those who are suffering from poverty and injustice, regardless of color, belief or gender, as part of God's plan to redeem, reconcile and restore the world. We seek to follow Jesus by living holy, humble and honest lives individually and corporately.

The Local Church

as a primary agent of bringing peace, justice, and love to a broken world. The integrated "word" and "deed" dimensions of God's mandate, as evidenced through the church's integral, or transformational, mission are necessary to bringing reconciliation and restoration to God, others, and the environment.

whether staff, volunteers, clients, program participants, donors and partners, as important actors in bringing peace, love, and justice. We recognize and affirm World Relief as a multicultural organization and seek to understand and respect the multiplicity of cultures among us. As we seek change in the world, we recognize that we, too, are changed, by those we serve.
