To glorify God, The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit (The Lord Jesus Christ). This is our highest motivation and all-encompassing purpose. We do not glorify man, organization, or government, but the Lord Jesus Christ, and we evaluate what we do by this standard. We evangelize unreached peoples, disciple believers, minister to human need, and enfold believers in Christ-centered Churches for perfection/ maturity in Christ and for the work of the ministry.
The Unreached – We reach out for those who are yet to hear about the everlasting gospel of the Kingdom of God for a witness (2 or 3).
Minister to Human Need – We see ministering to human need as scripturally valid. We do this in the context of our central purpose.
Disciple Believers – This involves teaching the Word of God, developing the gifts of the body, bringing believers to maturity and perfection in Christ.
GRA is a church-planting mission. We believe the local church is God’s provision for worship, witness, and edification of believers. We see the local church as the vehicle through which God releases His love, life, and light to change many of the spiritual, social, and economic ills of the society. The Church is to be salt and light, a therapeutic witness to the sick world, releasing the resurrection life of Jesus. We are called to set the captives free.
Our existence is based on God’s WORD and the working operation of the Holy Spirit in and through us. We have been apprehended with the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus (Phil 3:12-14). This Christ-centered Calling is stated and revealed in God’s manifold wisdom throughout the Bible (Prov. 22:20; Ex. 25:8, 40; Deut. 16:16; John 14:6; 1 Cor. 10:1-4, 11; 13:8-13; 2 Cor. 1:10; Eph. 3: 10, 4:8-16; Heb. 6:19-20; 8:1-6; 1 John 2:12-24).
