JESUS IN HAITI MINISTRIES EXISTS TO BRING GLORY TO GOD. Following Christ’s example, we pursue life transformation through discipleship by teaching the Word, building relationships, and sharing burdens, so that all people can experience abundant life in Christ.
JiHM’s mission of life transformation through discipleship is patterned after Jesus’ life and focuses on these core values:
We believe intentionally and responsibly serving others is a biblical call. Service can open people’s hearts to the gospel in ways that teaching alone cannot do. We are called to carry other’s burdens by the good news of what Christ did for us: that while we were under the burden of our sin, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Building relationships that demonstrate love, commitment, authenticity, vulnerability, accountability, and intentionality is key to discipleship. Jesus’ example of inviting his disciples to do life with him teaches us that knowledge of Christ is often gained by relationship before it is understood by explanation. Because of our genuine love for others, we delight to share not only the gospel of God but our lives as well. (1 Thessalonians 2:8)
TEACH THE WORD.
We believe the Word of God is living and active, the very power of God, and there is nothing more important and life-giving we could share to help others find abundant life. (1 Corinthians 1:18) We know the other two values would be meaningless without sharing the life and truth that is found only in the Word of God. (Matthew 4:4)
