“The Playbook” for Multi-Ethnic Ministries Theological Foundation:


Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ, the messiah and savior predicted in the Old Testament, who redeemed humankind and inaugurated God’s righteous rule over creation. All who believe in and align with Him are the people of God, called to preach the gospel and to live and promote kingdom values until Jesus returns.




Our message is theocentric. Our message leads to the making of disciples. Our message is transformative in the life of a believer. Our message fosters unity in community and holistic restoration of nature and society. Our message is Good News!
