We depend on God for our calling, empowerment, and our resources.
Our employees are called by God to reach the unreached. His Holy Spirit equips us (ordinary people) for our unique role in the great controversy between Christ and Satan. God entrusts us with His resources and provides for all our needs.
We live by a code of honesty and truth to achieve enduring results.
As stewards of God’s resources, we nurture a spirit of openness and accuracy in all our conversations, communications and financial reporting. We present Biblical truth with cultural sensitivity using evangelistic methods that are reproducible and sustainable by the people being served. We embrace the incarnational ministry model Christ demonstrated in order to achieve self-sustaining church planting movements among unreached people groups.
We nurture dependant vulnerability in our relationships.
At AFM, we respect the dignity, uniqueness and intrinsic worth of every person. This includes the unreached, AFM employees, and our supporters. We acknowledge that no one person can see the whole picture, and while we may be experts in our areas of responsibility, we seek and value advice and counsel from God, each other, and those to whom we are responsible. We choose to be responsible for our actions and value the guidance and help of our peers and leaders. Finally, we seek to encourage each other, making decisions that build up the emotional, spiritual, and intellectual capacity of fellow team members to succeed. Back to top.
We work together with the Adventist Church, donors, and each other to reach the unreached.
As Seventh-day Adventist Christians, we seek to work in harmonious cooperation with the Adventist Church and its leadership as well as other organizations to advance the kingdom of God. We understand the value and challenge of working in teams and are willing to pay the price both personally and corporately to build high functioning, effective and joy filled working relationships. We celebrate results together because we understand that reaching the unreached in this generation can only be accomplished when we all work together. Back to top.
We communicate with clarity and candor.
We foster a culture of openness by communicating pertinent information to everyone within AFM. We are not afraid to speak with complete transparency, (protecting sensitive or confidential information as needed), knowing that doing so builds trust. We are committed to facing our fears and addressing points of interpersonal conflict with kindness and respect. Back to top.
