OUR VISION AND CORE VALUES

Both congregations of All Saints’ Episcopal Church (Arabic and International) are comprised of a group of people from all backgrounds who are walking in God’s grace on a journey of transformation with Him.

 

All Saints’ International Congregation seeks to live as an authentic Christ-centred community, dedicated to impacting our city, our country and the nations with the love of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. This is the foundation of everything we do.

 

All Saints International Congregation (ASIC) is a multicultural, all-age community celebrating our unity in Christ. We emphasize friendship and fun as members of God's family with a commitment to discipleship and spiritual formation in growing more Christ-like.

 

All Saints International Congregation (ASIC) seeks to emphasise hospitality, friendship and welcoming visitors all ages, all nationalities and backgrounds with a desire to see people express faith in Jesus Christ.

 

All Saints International Congregation (ASIC) seeks to build community in its support and encouragement of Lebanese (residents & returnees) and expatriates (long and short-term) worshiping Christ through unity and diversity.

 

All Saints International Congregation (ASIC) seeks to emphasize God’s Grace and his undeserved and unlimited love in Christ, the centrality of prayer and the word of God and an openness to the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

ANGLICAN COMMUNION

MARKS OF MISSION

 

The five marks of mission have been developed by the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) since 1984. Since then, they have been widely adopted as an understanding of what contemporary mission is about with emphasis on both evangelism and concern for the poor in seeking social justice.

 

The marks were adopted by the General Synod of the Church of England in 1996 and many dioceses and other denominations used them as the basis of action plans and creative mission ideas. Some churches abbreviate the five marks to five words:

 

1. Tell

2. Teach

3. Tend

4. Transform

5. Treasure

 

In 2012, the ACC added wording to the fourth mark, to include the need for Christians to challenge violence and work for peace. The five marks of mission are as follows:

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • To teach, baptise and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth
