STATEMENT OF FAITH
WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God. (Psalm 119:105 & 160; II Timothy 1:13, 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)
WE BELIEVE there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; II Corinthians 13:14; I Peter 1:2)
WE BELIEVE in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His stoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory. (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-14; Romans 1:3-4; Hebrews 4:14-15)
WE BELIEVE salvation involves the redemption of man and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord, who, by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense, salvation includes regeneration, sanctification and glorification. (John 1:12, 14:6; Romans 5:1, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 3:36)
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by who’s indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18)
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; they that are saved unto resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Matthew 24:27, 30, 36 & 44; II Peter 3:7; Revelations 1:18, 3:11, 20:1-22:13)
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:11-22)
PHYSICAL: Nutritional food, vitamin supplements, medical and dental care, programs emphasizing physical fitness.
EDUCATIONAL: Quality education, skills training, special education program for children with special needs.
SOCIAL: Inter and extra cultural opportunities with focus on traditional upbringing.
SPIRITUAL NEEDS: Biblical training, evangelistic activities, summer Bible camps, scripture memory, devotionals, worship and discipleship.
We believe the most effective way to create positive and lasting change in society is through a deep investment in individual children. Providing long-term holistic care to children in the most destitute situations results in transformation- children with healthy minds, healthy bodies, emotional well-being, and authentic faith in Jesus Christ and Biblical ethics/values. It is through the lives of these transformed young people that lasting cultural, social, economic and political transformation will occur.
Holistic care is essential in order to raise healthy, well-rounded children who will become agents of Jesus Christ in society. We seek to create an environment that meets children’s basic needs, encourages their individual desires and passions and promotes excellence in achievement. We are committed to caring for children in four main areas: physical health, social welfare, spiritual care, and education. We are dedicated to working towards end results that have been established for each area of care.
HOLISTIC CARE END RESULTS:
- Physical Health: We are committed to raising children who are physically healthy with the ability to demonstrate and promote health in their lives, communities and beyond.
- Education: We are committed to raising children who reach their fullest potential through quality education, enabling them to display life skills and independent, creative thinking.
- Social Welfare: We are committed to raising emotionally healthy children who can integrate their past experiences into their lives, maintain connections with their communities, achieve lasting and meaningful relationships, and thrive at home, school and the workplace.
- Spiritual Care: We are committed to raising children who demonstrate a vibrant and authentic faith in Jesus Christ.
LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
Continual learning and growth are foundational to ensuring our mission is best accomplished. We welcome the knowledge, skills and passions of volunteers and partners. We embrace process improvement and seek to create standard operating procedures that are living documents that can be build and improved upon as we grow and learn as a foundation.
Our resources belong to God. He has entrusted us to care and use them in a responsible manner- therefore, all resources will be wisely used to best support the holistic care of the children and communities we serve. Well development efforts will be done in a manner that restores and protects God’s creation.
Rohiya Foundation defines sustainability as the ability to endure with increasing independence. We believe a sustainable approach to caring for the children we serve is the most effective way to empower individuals. We are committed to designing, assessing and improving the sustainability of our projects and programs.
FAMILY AND COMMUNITY
God designed people to live in community. Strong communities are needed for individuals to thrive. We are committed to providing children a “home” atmosphere where they have a place to belong and are accepted as a valued family member. We are committed to providing children with loving and secure caregivers as well as creating and maintaining an environment that celebrates how God created each individual and fosters love, respect, sharing, serving, participation and fellowship.
We are responsible to answer for our actions or lack of actions, in accordance with Biblical standards, including our use of time, finances and in our work and relational conduct. We seek to exercise authority with servant hearts, both to challenge and praise accomplishments, as well as protect the well-bring of Rohiya Foundation.
