- Recognize our weaknesses and need of the Lord’s constant help (Eph. 6:10f; Heb. 12:1; 1 Pet. 5:6-8)
- Recognize and know the times in which we live in our diverse communities and by extension the world and the danger this poses to our spiritual lives (Rom. 13:11-14; 2 Tim. 3:1f; 1 Thess. 5:1-11).
- Recognize and be alert to the fact of our three enemies, the world, the flesh, and the devil and his demonic forces, deceptions and strategies (1 John 2:15- 17; Jam. 4:3-6; Rom. 7:15-25; 8:4-7; Eph. 2:2; & 6:10-13).
- Be prayerful. One of the ways that we can take heed and be watchful is in prayer (Eph.6:18; Col. 4:2).
- Study and meditate on the Word regularly through daily time in the Word and by regularly assembling ourselves together (Ps. 119:15, 104, 105, 130, 165, 147, 148; Heb.3:7; & 10:24, 25).
- Maintain right associations and fellowship with the saints especially around the Word (cf. Ps 119:61 with vs. 62; 1 Thess. 5:11, Heb. 10:23-24, and 1 Cor. 15:33,34).
- Walk by means of the Spirit. Remember it is the Holy Spirit who convicts us of sin, applies the Word to our hearts, and enables us to appraise and discern all things, including our own lives according to the Word, the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:15,16).
- In order to fulfil the objectives, Gate of Zion Ministry would be very much obliged to join efforts with organizations, institutions and individuals; to provide supports, awards scholarships and grants on a non-discriminatory basis.
- Provide financial assistance to orphanages and destitute homes; and to establish social welfare system that will help rehabilitate victims of dreadful circumstances.
SCHEDULE AND STRATEGY
We establish a program to train and mentor new volunteers and traditional owner rangers. We also develop and implement a monitoring and evaluation framework to assess joint management effectiveness for the Gate of Zion Ministry arrangements work for the departments to know whether the arrangements themselves are functioning effectively.
MISSION AND VISION
Gates of Zion Ministry’s commitment is absolute priority of “going forth from ourselves toward our brothers and sisters” as one of the two great commandments which ground every moral norm and as the clearest sign for discerning spiritual growth in response to God’s completely free gift.
In the light of the peril, we must walk circumspectly; we must take heed to our walk, keep our eyes on the Lord, and use our blessings in Christ for godly living. If we will do this, we will develop the ability to handle CONCERNS in the lives of others and avoid disqualification.
