Commitment to Mission
In the light of its beliefs about mission expressed in this Mission Strategy paper, the church commits to:
- evangelism and teaching ministry to the English-speaking people in Hong Kong;
- encouraging its members to be mindful of the unreached especially in the 10/40 window, partnering with the church and the missionaries already there and sending missionaries to the unreached.
- exhorting and encouraging its members to carry out all five marks of mission in every part of their lives, especially in the workplace; and
- partnering with other Christian organizations especially through prayer and giving 15% of its non-designated income to support its mission partners through ‘the World Mission Fund’ (formerly ‘tithed to missions’).
- We value work among the unreached whether in Hong Kong or overseas (especially in the 10/40 window).
- We seek to support all five forms of mission work.
- We seek to support those who have received and discerned their call and have been sent out from Shatin Church.
- We value ministries that equip and train Christian leaders.
- We value partnership with ministries that are church-based or which support the work of local churches.
- We will consider the financial need and integrity of the agency and will value partnership with those for whom our contribution will make a difference.
