The Poor

Serving the Poor - God's Command:
One of the three central core values of Mission International's team ministry is to serve the poor.   We believe that as Christians it is our responsibility to find ways of making provision for those who are less well off than ourselves.
Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York USA has written a paper on this which challenges and encourages the church to live a biblical lifestyle with the poor featuring centrally in it.   A copy of the paper is attached below.

If you would like to support a poor family or community somewhere in the developing world then please see our Global Sponsor pages where you will find details of lots of projects in support of the poor.

The Poor: 

1) reduced to beggary, begging, asking alms

2) destitute of wealth, influence, position, honour

a) lowly, afflicted, destitute of the Christian virtues and eternal riches

b) helpless, powerless to accomplish an end

c) poor, needy

3) lacking in anything

a) as respects their spirit

1) destitute of wealth of learning and intellectual culture which the schools afford (men of this class most readily give themselves up to Christ's teaching and proved them selves fitted to lay hold of the heavenly treasure)
