As a result of walking alongside people, witnessing their suffering and desperation, eight values direct the work of Network Beyond.
1. WE BELIEVE IN MULTIPLICATION
The Good News is not for us alone. Multiplication lies at the heart of Jesus’ call to pass on His life to others and in the ministry model of early church leaders highlighted in 2 Timothy 2:2.
2. WE BELIEVE IN EMPOWERMENT
No one is “ordinary,” but gifted to serve God is their unique way. We entrust ministry to others, as noted in Ephesians 4:12. We value creativity and initiative.
3. WE BELIEVE IN PRAYING BIG PRAYERS TO OUR ALMIGHTY GOD
As we pray, we seek to know God. We want to hear from Him and see His vision for the world He loves. We ask that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
4. WE BELIEVE IN OBEDIENCE
Biblical knowledge is vital but must be combined with our response of saying “Yes” to all God calls us to.
5. WE BELIEVE IN DISCIPLE MAKING
Jesus’ commission (Matthew 28) is visionary, desiring all nations come to Him. Yet it is also personal, “go and make disciples.” It’s about the world plus “you and a few.”
6. WE BELIEVE IN MOVEMENTS
Spiritual movements are works of God’s Spirit that are indigenous, viral, and diminish darkness and lostness. We see the world in terms of generations, beyond us and our control.
7. WE BELIEVE IN RELATIONSHIPS
We value others who serve Jesus in their own calling and see the potential of lifegiving partnerships.
8. WE BELIEVE IN GOD'S TRANSFORMATIONAL WORK
Transformation is ongoing to develop Christ likeness in our thinking, relationships, and personal living. It’s our “head, heart, and hands” all being changed.
