In Jesus’ Name and in Jesus’ Way

Seeking to glorify God in everything, we ask for His guidance in prayer, follow where he leads, and live out His commands. (Proverbs 3:5-6; Matthew 6:33, 10:38-39)

Agape Love

We love selflessly, as Jesus loves, without expectation or limit. (Luke 10:27; John 13:34, 15:5; 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, 13)

Humility

We serve one another with Jesus as our example, we respect each other, we grow together, and we value each other deeply. (Proverbs 17:27, 22:4; Matthew 20:26-28; Mark 9:35)

Perseverance

We can do all things through Christ, and we advance the mission with the strength that comes from being firmly rooted in His love and hope. (Romans 5:3-5; Galatians 6:9; Philippians 1:6, 4:12-13)

Grateful and Hopeful

We look back in gratitude at God’s goodness and provision, and His faithfulness leads us to look forward with hope in all things. (Psalm 136; Isaiah 40:28-31; Lamentations 3:21-25)

Integrity

We do and say what is right, giving our best in all contexts and with all people. (2 Kings 12:15; Proverbs 12:18-20, 24, 13:4, 15:19; Matthew 5:37)

Yes to the One

Following the example of Jesus, we don’t turn away a person asking for help, and we are ready to come alongside those in need. (Matthew 5:42, 25:31-46)

Statement of Faith

AIM serves to glorify God through Jesus Christ.
(1 Peter 4:7-11; Ephesians 1:11-14)

The greatest need for all human kind is forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life.
(Romans 5:1-11, 3:21-26; John 4:13-14, 6:22-40, 14:6; Ephesians 1:7, 2:1-10)

Jesus has compassion for people, addressing their deepest spiritual need (for Him as savior and shepherd), while also addressing physical needs. He sought all people, even the outcast and especially the sinner to be his own, changing their lives for all eternity.

(Matthew 9:35-10:1; John 4:1-26, 8:1-11; Luke 19:1-10)

The greatest command is to love God, and to love others as ourselves–just as Jesus loves us.

(1 Corinthians 13; Matthew 22:37-40)

It is by the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in believers, that AIM carries out its work.
(Ephesians 3:20-21; Romans 8:9-11)

The Church is the body of Christ with Him as head. The church proclaims the Gospel for spiritual and personal transformation. It is through the Church that God cares for the disadvantaged and exploited.
(Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:17-20; Romans 6:12-14; James 1:27; Psalm 82:3-4)

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and serves to guide all aspects of the Christian life.
(Numbers 23:16-19; John 1:1-14; 2 Timothy 3:15-17)

It is by prayer that we discern the will of God. Through prayer we seek guidance in ministry and provision for ministry. God desires that we ask, and will provide according to His will more than we can ask and imagine.
(John 14:13; Matthew 7:7-11; Ephesians 3:20-21)

All resources belong to God and come from God. He will supply from his unlimited resources all we need to carry out His work.
(Psalm 50:10; Philippians 4:19)
