Values

As Christians, we hold as important many values, beliefs, and principles. The following is an abbreviated list most central to HIV/AIDS. See Mission, Program Goals, Vision, and Values, Beliefs, and Principles for an expanded list.


Transforming Power of the Gospel

LifeRise AIDS Resources believes that there is no more effective way to stem the tide of HIV/AIDS than to transform lives with the gospel of Christ.


Central Place of Family and Community

Because the family, within the larger context of community, is the preferred structure in which people pursue their lives and raise children, we support only those efforts that are family-and community-based, which draw upon the assets of these societal institutions to address HIV/AIDS.


Compassion

We follow the example of Christ to show mercy and bring healing to those hurting from HIV/AIDS.

Health Focus but Holistic Care

Our projects are holistic going beyond health needs to meet emotional, psychological, social, economic and spiritual concerns.


Integrity

To be responsible in our actions and good stewards of resources, we commit to the highest standards of integrity and demand the same of our partners.


Concern for the Poor and Most Vulnerable

LifeRise shares God’s special concern for the poor, oppressed, and most vulnerable, such as orphans and widows, and favors projects that work among them.


Response and Engagement of the Church in International HIV/AIDS

We engage in HIV/AIDS not only to relieve vulnerability and suffering on an individual level, but also to promote Christian values and response on a global level.

Partnership and Participation at a Local Level

LifeRise partners with grass roots evangelical Christians because we believe that projects are best designed and most sustainable when implemented by those whose lives are directly affected by them.


Marriage as a Sacred Covenant

LifeRise programs affirm God’s design for marriage as a life commitment of mutual love and respect between one adult man and one adult woman with sexual relations taking place only within the bonds of marriage.


Excellence in Our Programs

We desire to be excellent in our work, employing “best practices” and continuous learning and improvement, in order to reflect well on our God whom we serve.
