WHAT OUR PARTNERS SAY

"As a representative of a Non-Governmental Organization for 18 years overseeing humanitarian aid, I am impressed with the impact that Mercy Partners has made among the people we attempt to serve. Organizations have delays in dispersing care, however, this Christian charity has empowered national teams to care for the people within their own village which provides a direct transmission from the church to the people who need assistance. Simply, they have not fostered dependency that is so prevalent in the country. They are an example that many organizations should follow..."

— David B.

BRIDGING CULTURES FOR CHRIST PROVIDES HELP, HOPE, AND LOVE TO THOSE IN CONFLICT ZONES.

WHAT WE DO

MERCYPARTNERS connects resources with Gospel opportunities, so God’s people can meet the needs of humanity in a practical way.

IMMEDIATE CARE

Those that fall under the level of human existence need immediate care to Survive.

SUSTAINABLE AID

Those that exceed the level of survival require sustainable resources that will help them Strive.

DISCIPLE TRAINING

 Those that strive, need instruction, and education to help others in their community. When we help others we Thrive.

EDUCATION

Those that thrive in conflict need encouragement to remain where they are rather than seeking outward mobility to western culture.

Baptized Disciples

Where we provide change, native evangelists bring authenticity. Having partnered with natives and near-culture evangelists, we have seen over 400 unreached respond to the Gospel since 2010, taking on the likeness of Christ at baptism.

OUR BRIDGING METHOD

    As a non-profit charity, we raise charitable donations that allow us to provide aid in conflict zones and create service programs that foster immediate care, sustainable aid, and discipleship training of native evangelists to care for their local people. We are able to provide help, hope, and love to humanity in conflict because we enable native evangelists to provide mercy in a practical manner. We are committed to the opportunities we have to make God's grace evident by bridging the gap with native evangelists as an equal partner. Traditional mission strategies advocate four stages of development: pioneer, paternal, partner, and participation. During colonialism these strategies had worked; however, our globally engaged world of today offers better opportunities for an alternative approach. We call this approach Bridging Cultures for Christ.

PRACTICAL MERCY

                not Paternal Stage

 It is important that mercy passes

directly from the native church to

the recipient so Christ will be  glorified. Good News is good when

it is exemplified by practical mercy. When a follower receives mercy in a practical way, it will provide a hand up in their life. We partnered with the native church to provide resources where they had the opportunity.

IMMIGRANT STATUS

                 not Pioneer Stage

We encourage assimilation by

becoming vulnerable to the people  we are called to work with. The thought of becoming an immigrant is the proper mindset to build a bridge to reach others. It allows the Gospel to be understood and lived within the culture. By taking on the form of a student of culture we gain a license to show mercy.

Partners from the Start

                     no  Partner Stage

       We believe that partnership looks

        like treating the indigenous

        leaders as equal right from the 

      start. The partnership is at the

   root of mercy and growth stems    

from mercy; mercy that is shown through equal partnerships. If we start as partners we will not emulate a parent-child relationship. How we approach our relationships can liberate us to take on the role of a servant.

TRUE PARTNERSHIP

                no   Participatory Stage

          We believe that where we can

          create change, the native

         evangelist can provide  

        authenticity. The far-off  

     missionary is needed since we are responsible for meeting "Gospel opportunity" with an abundance of resources that God allows us to access and manage. We do not wait to be invited to participate but operate as an interdependent, multicultural church family.

WHAT'S NEW

HOW TO HELP

Help Those To Survive

Giving your time and resources helps others to survive. Your investment multiplies kingdom impact by bridging cultures.

Help Those To

Strive

Remember when you were on your own? You may have discovered that the smallest resources can make a difference. Sustaining resources provide a hand-up so others may strive.

Help Those To

Thrive

After being able to sustain ourselves the next significant step in the human experience is to "pay it forward" and help others to go from surviving to striving. Publications and training help to accomplish this goal.

Donate Directly

Charitable giving not only changes the situation of those in conflict zones but changes our heart's condition, connecting our prayer life to those in need.

Statement of Faith

 

• The Bible is the all-sufficient guide to becoming a friend of God and maintaining that friendship, both individually and corporately.


• The Death, Burial and Resurrection of God's only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, created the passage that all mankind can unite with their creator.

 

• It is only when we die to self and submit to being buried with Christ, (Rom 6:4) that we receive salvation and God's indwelling Holy Spirit.


• This burial is physical and spiritual at the same time, the physical immersion of the body led by the submitting of the human will. When we are immersed, we are saved from sin and enter a covenant, an agreement, as we continue to submit to God's Holy Spirit which guides us in all truth. Outside of this death, there is no entry or identity in Christ Jesus.
