Kharis House Core Values & Statement of Faith

OUR CORE VALUES

  • We believe it is the Church’s responsibility to redeem the world. God’s one and only plan. It is the power of Christ for transformation (emotional, physical, psychological, spiritual) of the broken lives the ministry seeks to rescue.
  • We believe every life matters and is valuable to God regardless of the circumstances under which that life was created. We place worth and dignity on all life, from unborn babies to aging widows.
  • We believe in family preservation, preventing orphans and encouraging the vital role mothers play in the lives of their children.
  • We believe we are to represent our Lord with the same radical grace we have received. A radical grace that supersedes culture and brings unmerited equality and inclusion.
  • We believe all girls deserve the right to an education. We value education and equal rights for vulnerable girls.
  • We value education and economic empowerment of women as means to better the lives of their families and break the cycle of poverty.
  • We value prayer, partnership, collaboration, servanthood, hard work and sustainability.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God to man.
  • There is one eternal God, the Creator of all things, who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. Man was created in God’s image, but by man’s transgression became separated from God.
  • Man is justified by faith, by the shed blood of Jesus Christ on Calvary’s cross, His death, and His resurrection from the grave.
  • The Holy Spirit resides in the hearts of true believers and is evidenced by a spiritual rebirth, reconciliation with God, and obedience to God’s Word.
  • Both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; the saved unto eternal life and the lost unto eternal damnation. God is the creator of all life, including the unborn; all life is precious in His sight.
  • God designed marriage to be between a man and a woman united in a lifelong union.

  • Legitimate employers should never ask for a fee during the recruitment process.
