Statement of Faith

STATEMENT OF FAITH

Exchange Ministries is a non-profit ministry dedicated to loving, educating and investing in people to live healthy and whole lives in Christ so we can love others well.  God made it clear that Exchange Ministries has been called to action. He charged us to love, disciple and send out because the harvest is plenty but the workers are few (Matthew 9:37).

Exchange Ministries believes that, as the body of Christ gets healthy and whole by the power of the love of God, they will be fit for their purpose—to proclaim and show the love of God down the roads less traveled. By the power of God and the gift of His good grace, Exchange Ministries, its participants, leaders and partnering donors will impact the world for good by bringing wholeness and healing into a lost and hurting world.
