We see in Scripture that an obedient heart in line with Christ’s cares for the world’s widows and orphans, for the poor and the oppressed. We believe that material poverty is ultimately the result of broken relationships. We believe that empowering the oppressed is about much more than providing more physical resources--more imported, condescending solutions, that don’t address real problems. Relational reconciliation is the mission of Christ and therefore our mission. We believe if we are going to meet them where they are with the love of Christ, we must come alongside them, in their circumstances, walk with them in their poverty, and empower them to bring change to their own lives. We can’t make disciples of Jesus by fixing people’s problems for them. We make disciples by empowering the oppressed.
