Core Values

Who We Are

Jesus calls us to make His glory known among all nations by making disciples and multiplying churches. Being on mission is not a program, but the calling of our lives as Christians. However, 3.2 billion people are currently unreached with the gospel, and many of them endure unimaginable suffering. And, only 1% of mission dollars and 3% of missionaries go to the unreached. Something has to change. Radical exists to equip the Church to be on mission.

At Radical, we believe the Scriptures are the inerrant and infallible Word of God, providing the foundation for all that we believe and do. Based upon His Word, we are driven by the following core values:

DESPERATE PRAYER

We are dependent on Christ for all things. This drives us to our knees in desperate and continual prayer for God’s power to work in and through us for His glory.

UNCONDITIONAL DEVOTION

Because Jesus is Lord, there are no contentions regarding our obedience to him. Whatever He says, we will do. Wherever He leads, we will follow. We will give our very lives for the sake of the gospel.

HUMBLE SERVICE

We are overwhelmed by the unfathomable grace of Christ, who became our servant for our salvation. Consequently, we want to live and work to serve others in His spirit and for His honor.

BIBLICAL INTEGRITY

Knowing that we are accountable to Christ and to the people we serve, we will reflect God’s Word and honor God’s character in our financial practices, professional relationships, and personal lives.

GLOBAL COMPASSION

Christ in us provokes us to deep concern for a world marked by urgent spiritual and physical need. As a result, we are compelled to serve the most spiritually and physically impoverished people on the planet.

TRUSTING AND TEACHING THE WORD

The Word of God directs our planning and our proclaiming. We don’t want to come up with new plans for the church; we want to align with the plans God has already given in His Word. Similarly, in every setting we preach and every resource we provide, we want to exalt the glory of God by exposing the Word of God.

MAKING DISCIPLES THROUGH LOCAL CHURCHES

God has ordained making disciples to be the central mission of the local church. Therefore, we want to encourage, equip, and empower local bodies of Christ as they lead the way in accomplishing the global mission of Christ.

REACHING THE UNREACHED

Christ alone is worthy of the praise of every people group in the world. Knowing that many of these people groups have still not been reached with the gospel, we want to encourage and equip the church to reach them all, confident that one day the Great Commission will be accomplished and Christ will return to receive the praise He is due.
