Core Values

Global Gates Network of Canada seeks to reproduce disciples and churches among unreached and least-reached peoples. As a result, we will consistently focus our efforts on sharing the gospel with unreached and least-reached peoples in a way that they can understand and we will promote indigenous leadership, ministries, and churches to be birthed out of our organization. Some of our core values include: 

1. Believing and trusting in God to accomplish what He desires (Is 55:10-11, Matt 6:33-34)
Focusing ministry on unreached and least-reached peoples (Rom 15:20, Matt 28:19-20, Matt 24:14, Rev 7:9-10)
3. Proclaiming the gospel in ways that it can be heard, understood, and received in one’s own cultural context (1 Cor 9:19-23)
4. Doing good in the name of Jesus to all people (Gal 6:9-10)
5. Starting reproducible churches (Gen 1:28, Matt 16:18, 2 Tim 2:2, Matt 24:14)
6. Equipping churches and Christians to work among the unreached and least-reached (Eph 4:11-12)
7. Creating synergy in ministry by partnering with like-minded organizations and people (Eph 4:1-16, 1 Cor 12:12-30, Rom 12:3-8)
8. Allowing Christ to transform our worldview (Rom 12:1-2, Col 1:13)
9. Following the teachings of the Bible, so as to bear fruit as followers of Christ (1 Tim 3:16; Gal 5:22-26)
10. Practicing obedience-based discipleship (Matt 7:21; Luke 6:46)
