What We Believe

We are Christians, called by God to honor Jesus Christ with our lives, abiding by Biblically defined ethical standards in every area of life, public and private. This includes our efforts to persuade co-workers and others to believe the good news about Jesus Christ.

Wherever we live and work, we seek to follow the mandate, motives, message, and model of Jesus, who still pursues and reclaims those lost in sin and rebelling against him.

We believe all people are created in God's image with the capacity to relate to their creator and redeemer. We disdain any effort to influence people which depersonalizes them or deprives them of their inherent value as a person.

Since we respect the value of persons, we believe all are worthy of hearing about Jesus Christ. We also affirm the right of every person to survey other religious options. People we serve are free to choose a different belief system than Christianity. We, the members of the "Nursing Homes Spiritual Helper," are Christians, and we will serve anyone as best we can and as needed.

We affirm the role and right of Christians to share the gospel of Christ in the marketplace of ideas. However, this does not justify any means to fulfill that end. We reject coercive techniques or manipulative appeals, especially those that play on emotions and discount or contradict reason or evidence. We will not bypass a person's critical faculties, prey upon psychological weakness, undermine a relationship with one's family, or religious institution, or mask the true nature of Christian conversion. We will not intentionally mislead.

We respect the individual integrity, intellectual honesty, and academic freedom of others, both believers and skeptics, and so we proclaim Christ without hidden agendas. We reveal our own identity, purpose, theological positions, and sources of information. We will use no false advertising and seek no material gain from presenting the Gospel.

We invite people of other religious persuasions to join us in true dialogue. We acknowledge our humanness-that we Christians are just as sinful, needy, and dependent on the grace of God as anyone else. We seek to listen sensitively in order to understand, and thus rid our witness of any stereotypes or fixed formula which block honest communication.

As our "brother's keeper," we accept our responsibility to admonish any Christian brother or sister who presents the message of Christ in a way that violates these ethical guidelines.

We, the members of "Nursing Homes Spiritual Helper," do claim peace, truth, serenity, and strength of character as Godly spiritual virtues.
