    How we work

    Integral Mission

    At CBM, we love God and we love his mission to heal a broken world. Our love for God and his mission is rooted in the fact that he first loved us and rescued us in our brokenness. As a sign of our gratitude to him, we willingly and enthusiastically accept his invitation to join him in his mission.

    We are part of a global family of followers of Jesus Christ, we seek to bring hope in a world of poverty, broken relationships, environmental destruction, lost hope and every type of oppression. Our call is to radical discipleship as followers of Christ the King. The way we do this is through Integral Mission.​

    Integral mission weaves together our words and deeds.  Through our words, we share God’s love and redemption offered in Jesus Christ, and invite people to respond by accepting the gift of a new life.  Through our deeds, we contribute to the healing and positive transformation of people and communities through physical, spiritual, economic, psychological and social programs.

    We believe that both parts are essential, neither takes priority over the other. Neither should be done independently of the other. Each part is essential and necessary for the completeness of God’s desire for his creation.

    Partners

    One of the questions we love to hear from our donors is, “Why don’t we ever see ‘CBM’ and its logo on the side of vehicles overseas or on the door of an office?” The answer is extremely simple: We work with, for and through our global partners. Our goal isn’t to strengthen our ‘brand’ overseas or toot our own horn. Wherever we work in the world, our strategy is consistently this – build up local churches capacity to help heal a broken world through word and deed (see the section above ‘How We work’).

    Partnership is intentional collaboration, where the co-participants share a common journey towards the accomplishment of a pre-determined purpose. Whether we are addressing spiritual, social, economic or environmental challenges, our partnerships are formed to undertake either a specific project (which is usually location-based and time-specific) or to develop a broad array of ongoing programs or activities.

    Together with our partners overseas, we work together in a spirit of mutuality to determine the scope, style and scale of the activities at an early stage, and agree on how to implement the proposal.​ We often help our partners when they need assistance in building their local capacity for effective holistic ministry and sustainable programs. We work together to assess and improve one another’s ministries and are always ready to learn and receive, while we also seek to share in the gifts and resources we have. And when the task is completed and the time has come, we celebrate what we managed to do together.
