The heart of the Gospel is the promise of Change.
Jesus taught us to be modest in doing works of charity on His behalf. Consequently, we do our best to do good works quietly. You will not find the Emerge name on any building in the world and we do our best to provide aid to the poor without fanfare or self-promotion. The story is about Him and what He has done for all of us.
Reach the Young
We focus exclusively on children and young people. Getting to them early effectively rewrites much of their life story. We focus on long-term solutions and the process of daily nurture that helps them to grow to be powerful in Christ. This releases them to fulfill the promise that is bound up within them.
The Best Way to Help
After three decades of working in Asia, we are certain that the most important thing we can do for Asian people is to develop next generation leaders. We want to ignite and mobilize the next generation of Asian believers, helping them to develop a strong spiritual core, competence in leadership and a mastery of modern methods of communication.
We Aren’t “the Best”
We don’t claim to be more special than other non-profits or church groups. We love them all and help all as we can, freely sharing the resources God has entrusted to us. We just want to be found faithful when our life’s brief opportunity is over. We’re here to serve. Contact us. We love to network and we don’t care who gets the credit.
Creativity is Worship
God is introduced to the world as the Creator. Whenever we take the time to think and act creatively we reflect His character. The storytelling arts and music have a profound power to influence people in their core so that the word of God can take root at the deepest levels. We train young people to use the arts and to allow the Holy Spirit to release creativity in them.
Nothing Matters More than the Gospel
While we work tirelessly to reduce poverty and injustice, these are temporary problems, confined to this life. They are the result and reflection of the spiritual darkness covering the earth because of the fall of mankind. Lostness, however, is an eternal disaster. Nothing matters more than doing all we can to insure that lost people hear the one message that can transform their circumstance forever.
“I am not ashamed of the gospel. It is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.” Romans 1.16
