The purpose of Resourcing Christian Education International (RCE) is to serve Christian education ministries in their mission of providing exceptional educational opportunities with a biblical foundation and Christian worldview.

As we partner with and assist educational institutions that range from traditional primary and secondary education schools to Christian colleges, seminaries and adult education centers, our goal is to serve them and their staff so that they can excel in the ministries to which God has called them!

Mission statement

RCE is a unique, service-oriented mission organization that strives to make your ministry a success for the Kingdom of God.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the fully inspired, infallible, authoritative and inerrant Word of God in its original writings.

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the sinful nature of each person; and that we are justified on the single ground of faith in Jesus Christ and His shed blood and that only by God's grace and through faith alone we are saved.

We believe that each human being is spiritually lost, sinful and utterly unable to save himself or herself.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling and filling enables the Christian to live a godly life.

We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the hope of His appearing has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people. Believers are resurrected to enjoy eternal life with God and unbelievers are resurrected to eternal suffering apart from God.

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

We believe that the primary purpose of man is to know God, glorify Him and enjoy Him forever.

We believe that a primary responsibility of all who are saved is to work toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission. As well, we believe that human betterment and justice are essential products of the Christian life.
