THE FIVE GLOBAL OPPORTUNITIES
(Within the universe of opportunities, who can we help)?
Christian Camping: Temporary communities of faith in their various forms
Church Growth & Planting: Existing & new frontiers

Evangelism & Discipleship: Communicating the gospel; spiritual growth
We believe in:
The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, entirely trustworthy and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;
The triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection, and His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness and glory;
The person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration, and sanctification, who indwells every believer equipping them with gifts for service and witness;
The necessity of the new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ;
The church as the one, universal body of Christ who is the Head, called to be God's redeemed people.
