TEAM’s Purpose and Vision
From everywhere to everywhere: We will help churches send missionaries where the most people have the greatest need, making disciples and planting reproducing churches to the glory of God.
TEAM’s Core Values
We subject our lives to the truth of Scripture, and we rely on God through prayer. God provides what is necessary to carry out world evangelization. While only God can save, we speak His words, use His gifts and reflect His love. Without constant reliance on God through prayer and obedience to His Word, we can do none of these things.
Our work is focused on the Church from beginning to end. We engage existing churches in cooperative efforts to establish new churches worldwide and then encourage those churches to establish even more new churches.
Christian visionaries see the immediate future in light of eternity. We see the day when the people of God from every tribe, tongue, people and nation will be gathered around the throne of heaven, worshipping Him. Keeping our eyes on this vision, we are adaptable and flexible, gladly changing methods when appropriate.
Because lost people matter to God, they matter to us. We go to serve, not to be served. We work where the Gospel is least known because we have been commanded to do so and because people’s ultimate need is to find eternal life through a personal relationship with God.
Character and competence are both indispensable. None of us starts with complete maturity or fully developed skills. Through lifelong learning and development, we increase our effectiveness and become what God already knows we can be. We seek to empower everyone at TEAM to reach his or her full potential.
People are our most valuable asset. We at TEAM relate to each other in a community characterized by unity, trust, acceptance and diversity, linking arms with God’s people wherever we find them. We are accountable to one another, evaluating ourselves regularly. The more we are a caring community, the more we demonstrate peace and brotherhood to a world torn apart by divisive hatreds.
