Global Awakening has been constructed on a strong foundation of core beliefs and values that we find central to fulfilling the vision and mission given to Randy:
Knowing and depending upon God:
The Lord reveals Himself to and through His Church; Christ in us is the hope of glory.
This is our essential link in communing with God, the foundational work in global mission and the primary way of knowing how to accomplish His purposes on earth.
Presence of God:
Valuing and living in God’s presence and walking in deep intimacy with Him is vital for all ministry. Jesus only spoke what He heard the Father say; He only did what He saw the Father do (John 12:50; 5:19).
Pursuit of God:
Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross was more than enough to wash away our sins and give us full access to God. However, we hunger and thirst for more of Christ to be revealed in our lives and ministry for His glory (Ps. 63:1-3).
Relationships based on and built by trust:
Our relationship with God will overflow in life and ministry with other believers.
Living out the truth of the Word of God humbly and consistently in love, in moral, financial, and relational matters (Eph. 4:15).
We are to extend mercy for the physical and spiritual needs of believers and unbelievers alike – for the poor, widows and orphans, etc. (James 1:27).
Jesus prayed that we would be one as He is one with the Father (John 17:21-23). The synergy of oneness with Him, His purposes and one another release the greater power of unity: “five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight.” (Lev. 26:8). As God’s people, we are to reflect His oneness in life, truth and power.
Negotiable doctrines and practices allow the body of Christ to unify under the common banner of Christ's death and resurrection. Our diverse national and ethnic orgins, gift mixes, and worship experiences express His richness and glory.
We partner together to uphold values, purpose and mission.
Sharing the gospel with others is the intentional overflow of a Christian’s life in God.
The purpose of the five-fold ministry is to equip the saints for the work of ministry. We will give away what we have learned. Knowing that all we have is of His grace, we will release ministry through prophecy, laying on of hands, teaching, and training.
