Commitment to Christ

At Compassion, we aspire to be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ, in who we are and what we do. And we commit to actively seek God’s face and to do His will, demonstrating that God has changed — and is changing — our character.

Commitment to Christ

Jesus Christ is at the heart of our ministry. Our commitment to Christ drives the content of our programs, characterizes the kind of people we hire, and guides our ethics.

We believe we must do more than simply meet the physical needs of the poor. Poverty sends a defeating, painful message into the heart of a child: a message that says, "You don't matter." Introducing children to their loving Heavenly Father is the most powerful way of reversing this message.

Every child who participates in a Compassion program is given the opportunity to learn about Jesus and discover how to develop a lifelong relationship with God. This good news is modeled and shared in age-appropriate and culturally relevant ways, never through coercion.

The Great Commission is at the core of our mission and discipleship is at the core of our program.

We aspire to be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ, in who we are and what we do. And we commit to actively seek God’s face and to do His will, demonstrating that God has changed — and is changing — our character.
