Slide 11: 

The key to our identitie is the balance between “what we belief”, “How we feel about each other and others”, and “How we express our faith and love” What we How we What we belief care do

Slide 12: 

How we care We are one in Christ Our church strives for unity. That, however, does not imply that we expect that all will believe in the same way. New Testament values as servant hood, meekness and humility will help us to value and respect each other, in spite of our differences. We feel a bond with one another and experience unity and love in our life of faith. The basis of our faith is love for God, our neighbour and ourselves. We experience our unity in our keeping of the commandments of God and our attachment to the faith of Jesus.

Slide 13: 

How we care We welcome diversity The Bible celebrates and encourages diversity. We do no look down on how others experience their faith, or condemn them. Nor do we feel we have to force our tastes, our opinions or methods on them. There is not just one acceptable method, but many methods are welcome, all to the glory and honour of God.

Slide 14: 

How we care We are interconnected We are connected with every human being—whether believer or unbeliever—through our Creator. He cares for every human being, without any distinction. Jesus invites us to love God above everything, to love ourselves, and to interact with our fellow human beings with the same love.

Slide 15: 

How we care We are mild Christ did not come to this world to condemn it. He came to save the lost. All of us are broken human beings. The judgment has not been given to us. If we truly believe this, we will see others as human beings who, just like us, are pilgrims, en route to their destination. Love is the power of God and is the central aspect of the divine message. If God’s Spirit guides us, we do not have to worry when we find that other believers are at a different point in their journey from where we are. Therefore, we live on the basis of acceptance, tolerance, and a mild and forgiving spirit.

Slide 16: 

How we care We stimulate growth We allow others to grow in their own way. Just as Abraham, we are all, with God, on a journey to the promised land. He leads us! We ask each other what we need in order to grow and, then, we help each other to realize that growth. The church facilitates growth with an attitude of respect, openness, honesty and equality.

Slide 17: 

How we care We care We care about our fellow-brothers and –sisters. We therefore support each other in our life of faith. If we care for each other, we will at times warn each other. We may open dialogue and challenge others to live with maturity, conscious of their responsibility towards God and their fellow men.

Slide 18: 

How we care We are in this world Following the example of Christ, we will come to the defence of those who are oppressed, and we will help those who are in need. As stewards of God’s creation, we are responsible for the earth on which we live. All life that God created deserves to be treated with respect.

Slide 19: 

How we care We have been sent Until the day of Jesus’ return we want to share our faith, freely and enthusiastically. We hope and pray that people will decide to become disciples of Jesus and to belong to those who ‘obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus’ (Revelation 14:12).
