Purpose

Paraclete's vision is to see a flourishing global Church served by faithful, effective leaders.

Our Methodology:

We serve as catalysts, without personal or institutional agendas.

We stay only as long as needed and welcome.

We view all our work as spiritual activity with eternal significance.

We promote effective and Godly stewardship of resources as a model for business and ministry.

We practice accountability of planning and evaluating our work, and teach others to do the same.


Mission statement

Our mission: To come alongside Christian leaders around the world.


Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
