WHAT WE BELIEVE

Respect
All people matter to God, and therefore, they matter to us. All people deserve to be treated with respect, love, and hospitality, regardless of race, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status.

Integrity
POBLO sees integrity as central to our organization. We value openness, honesty, and trust and implement these principles in our work.

Inclusiveness
POBLO strives to foster a culture of inclusiveness in all that we do. We value diversity and extend our services to all, regardless of nationality, religion, or cultural background.

Cultural Relevancy
POBLO believes in one Gospel message that transcends cultures, yet we recognize that the way the message is delivered must vary in order to resonate with diverse groups of people. We strive to make our work as effective as possible through cultural relevancy.

Sensitivity
In the Islamic faith, conversion to Christianity or any other religion is punishable by death. Many of the people we work with face possible discrimination and even danger from family and friends if they believe in Christ. We are aware of the risks and do all that we can to insure their security. 

There is one Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7-8).
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. He is true God, begotten of the Father from eternity (John 14:6; 1:1).
All who trust in Jesus are saved by God’s grace, through faith in His sacrificial death (Romans 3:24). 
The Gospel is the power of God to save all nations (Romans 1:16).
 All people are loved by God (John 3:16). 
All people should be given the opportunity to hear the Gospel message (Matthew 24:14).
Christians are called to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). 
Christians are called to meet the physical needs of all people (Galatians 6:7-10). 

POBLO is committed to the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Confessions and Doctrine in every area of our ministry.
