Strategic Goals – through the 12 Reforms

  • Christian heritage: The western church becomes counter-cultural and transformative by reasserting the principles and values of God’s kingdom culture.
  • World view transformation: The Christian world view’s core principles are highly valued as essential social policy standards.
  • Evangelism: Achieving a social climate where respect for the Christian faith and a willingness to hear the gospel expands and the Church grows significantly.
  • Social responsibility: Western Civilisation’s slide into paganism is arrested.
  • Human nobility: Everyone has the same opportunities to access justice and achieve their full potential as people made in the image of God.
  • Social capital: Social cohesion, safety and cooperation, operating free of artificial or remotely imposed constraints becomes the norm.
  • Freedom from hegemony: All ideological threats to democracy and human rights no longer threaten the West or the rest of the world.
