God-Focused It's not about us! HBI Ministries are about God. All we do is to be God-centered, God-directed & God-focused, bringing glory to Him above all else. We are eager to know God's presence, hear His voice and follow Him. (Psalm 63:1-4) We want to make God the center of all our attention and endeavors. (Mark 12:29-30; Deuteronomy 5:6, 11; Psalm 145). Word-Based We accept the Bible as the authoritative source that sets the standard and provides the foundational principles for all that we do. We desire to be transformed, taught, renewed, challenged, strengthened & empowered individually and corporately by seeing God's word rightly applied in our lives and ministries by the Holy Spirit. Christ-Minded We are committed to developing passionate followers of Jesus Christ. Christ is both our example and strength, as we pursue integrity, excellence, faith, hope and love in our life and work. As followers of Christ, we strive to be a transforming community dedicated to Christ-like love, servanthood, holiness and obedience to the Father. We believe that following Christ’s example means sacrifice, hardship and chances of facing death. Mission-Driven We are committed to the urgent and unfinished task of making disciples of Jesus Christ in all nations. We are committed to a mission that flows out of God's love for the world and our compassion for people. It is our desire to actually see the kingdom of God become a reality in India and beyond. In doing this, we desire to work in loving, trusting, interdependent relationships with churches and other partners who share our vision. Spirit-Empowered We confess our dependency on the Holy Spirit to control and empower our lives and ministry so that we reflect His courage, righteousness and fruit in our relationship at home, society, ministry and church. As we experience God’s leadership, we exhibit the fruit of the Spirit in all our relationships- our home, church, organization and in our communities. Church-Centered HBI, as an organization, exists to serve local congregations. We believe that the local church is the primary instrument God uses to accomplish His purposes in the world. Therefore, we are committed to fostering church planting movements, equipping local churches to become healthy, growing, multiplying and mobilizing churches to accomplish the Great Commission. People-Sensitive We believe that people matter to God. Therefore, all people matter to us. We want to serve people from all communities, races, castes, classes, genders and languages. We are inclusive, caring and relevant without compromising the principles of the Word and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ.
