The policy of the Mission is to maintain fellowship with other groups of like evangelical position, while maintaining our ability to function independently when necessary. The Mission seeks to preserve its interdenominational character in view of its responsibility to the evangelical community of which it is a part. The Mission recognizes each Christian member’s liberty to hold varying views within the Statement of Faith.
It may be necessary to relate to other groups (e.g. government or professional bodies) regarding common concerns. In no case does this involve organic union or mutual interdependence with non-evangelical bodies such as the World Council of Churches or its affiliates.
Sponsorship by Other Organizations
When entering a new country of service under the sponsorship of another organization, Y4K will seek to cooperate with that organization in every way, but will maintain the Mission’s autonomy and responsibility for its program.
Y4K recognizes that church groups arising from its ministry are not the Mission’s but Christ’s. From the beginning, the Mission seeks to emphasize that a local church comes under the authority of Christ and not of a mission organization, and that the church, with the Lord’s enabling, should be self-reliant and not dependent on resources from other organizations.
