Word Made Flesh is united in philosophical commitments, which are expressed in seven missional starting points.

Jesus and the Kingdom of God

Hebrews 12:28, 13:8. We are an ecumenical community of Christians united in obedience to Jesus for service among the poor. Our service flows from intimacy with Jesus and is guided by the values of the Kingdom of God.

The Most Vulnerable of the World's Poor

Matthew 25:40, James 2:5. We respond to the needs of the world by building community among those who lack sustainable access to resources and availability to opportunity.


Genesis 1:27, Mark 6:7, John 13:35, I Corinthians 12, Acts 4:32, Philippians 2:2, 2 Corinthians 5:17. Community, a tangible sign of the Kingdom of God, is our starting point for theological, ecclesiological, and missiological activity.


Matthew 10:7-10, I John 3:16-18. We posture ourselves in simplicity with open hands, dependent on God.

Incarnational, Holistic Mission

John 1:14, 20:21, II Corinthians 5:18-20, 8:9, Luke 4:18-19, Matthew 25:35-46, James 2:15-16, I John 3:16-18. We do not minister to the poor; we are in mission among the poor, identifying with them rather than integrating the poor into our reality.

Partnership in Mission

Revelation 5:9-10, Galatians 3:28. In our praxis of mutual submission, mission is dependent on partnership with local Christians and churches. Mission unifies us.

Stewardship of Creation

(Genesis 1:28, 2:15; Isaiah 11:9, 60; Jeremiah 29:1-14; Habakkuk 2:14; Matthew 9:35-36; 1 Corinthians 15; Galatians 5:22-23; Revelation 20-22) God has created humanity with and restored through Jesus the vocation of priesthood to order and care for creation.
