Our Vision Statement
Our vision for the future (next 10 years) is a country of Myanmar, and also China, where God is worshipped and Christ is followed by a growing number of Christians (+ 400) and churches are increasing in number (+30) and maturity.
Our Values Statement
To fulfill our vision and properly perform our mission, we commit to the following universally shared and enduring core values, which guide our operations, decision making and our behavior within our ministries and also our mission field:
Servanthood. Just as Jesus “did not come to be served, but to serve” (Matt. 20:28), we believe that our role in the Kingdom of God is to serve God and serve people. We will strive to follow Jesus’ example of servanthood that he demonstrated when he washed his disciples’ feet, “I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you” (John 13:15).
Commitment. Jesus said that “no one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God” (Luke 9: 62), illustrating that an unrelenting, full-time commitment of our time, talents, energy and resources is necessary to be effective in ministry and pleasing to God. By serving in MACM, we make that commitment to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Stewardship. We recognize that all we have belongs to God (our Master) and that we are stewards of what he has given us, whether endowed at birth, earned through work or received through offerings. Thus, we commit to exercising biblical stewardship of resources placed under our care so that we too may receive the blessing of the Master as cited by Jesus in Matthew 25:23 “Well done, good and faithful servant[s]! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”
Integrity. We believe that ministry and personal integrity must underlie all that we do and say in our daily walk with God and in service in his kingdom. Integrity means being honest and transparent in our behavior and accountable for the commitments we make, in keeping with James’ exhortation “…do not swear – not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your ‘Yes’ be yes, and your ‘No,’ no…” (James 5:12).
Cooperation. We understand that successful ministry depends upon cooperation, mutual respect and encouragement between MACM and its employees, its collaborating churches and educational institutions, its financial supporters and its Board of Directors. Therefore, we commit to working with our ministry partners in a loving spirit of cooperation in all we do.
Faithfulness. We affirm that the “righteous will live by faith” (Rom. 1:17) and that “faith will be credited by God as righteousness” (Rom 4: 24). Thus, we commit to walking and ministering by faith and “showing that faith by what we do” (James 2: 18) in the ministry of MACM.
