The Three Core Goals
Our shared goals are a part of our mission together. We seek to fulfill these things in word, deed, and power as individuals, together with one another, and in unity with fellow Christians of all nations.
WE WILL IMPART THE PRACTICES AND VIRTUE OF KINSHIP
We form small, extended familial groups and practice mutual care and support with our relatives, fellow Upadarians, and fellow Believers according to a Biblical blueprint. We refer to these as Kinship Groups, where we view the success and well-being of those we are connected to be as important as our own.
In addition to mutual support and mutual profit, our approach is to grow through participatory learning experiences to develop our lives in accordance with the scroll of God’s purpose and destiny, to fulfill God’s best for our lives with excellence, and to actualize, in a spirit of love and truth, God’s standards of righteousness and justice.
WE WILL PURSUE MISSIONAL LIVES AND SUPPORT WORLD OUTREACH
We embrace a holistic approach as witnesses in word, deed, and influence. We seek to live as examples of the gospel, support those carrying the gospel, and distribute the benefits of the gospel to the oppressed.
Our intent is to live a missional life and engage by focusing on tangible needs. We aspire to communicate in people’s native language without the limitations of sociocultural imposition stemming from previous forms of missions traditionally affiliated with Western church culture.
WE WILL BE AS REFUGEES AND PROVIDE REFUGE TO CHRISTIANS IN CRISIS
We provide refuge in emergency and crisis situations by offering security, safety, and medical supplies and services for ourselves and those we grant refuge to, especially fellow Christians. Everyone who flies our flag is committed to providing refuge to people in need and aiding refugees by connecting them with local resources.
Both individuals and local chapter communities seek to provide sanctuary, shelter, support, aid, comfort, and assistance to internal and external refugees, to Christians first and others based on Christian love. We will find and exploit “gaps for freedom” – the unsuspecting opportunities available to all, which allow us to prosper in self-sustaining freedom efforts within existing national frameworks by using legal means and the latest technological possibilities.
