The Gospel is at the heart of everything we are and everything we do at the 25 Project. II Corinthians 5:21 says, “For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” We exist because of the Gospel, and the grace and mercy that flows from what was accomplished through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. We desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a lost world. Every single act, every deed, every act of love and care, every meal given and served, all of it…the motivation, the drive behind everything is simply and sufficiently the Gospel.
The chosen and called instrument to which God has ordained to take the Gospel to the world is the Church (Acts 2:42-47; Acts 13-14). The 25 Project is not the Church, and we never pretend or attempt to take the place of the Church in any circumstance. We are here to support, uphold, and help mobilize the Church to fulfill its God given purpose. And so at the heart of all we do is a cooperation, dependence, partnership, and support of the local Church.
The Least of These
God’s call on us as an organization and ministry is focused on those Jesus refers to in Mathew 25 as the “least of these”. Jesus says, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me… Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” As a ministry, we are specifically focused on ministry to orphan and vulnerable children. Our aim is to provide holistic care and ministry addressing the spiritual, physical, economic, and educational needs of those we serve. Bringing Hope to the least of these is the calling we feel has been placed upon us an organization, and it is to this segment of people to whom we are committed to serving.
