We are followers of Jesus, affirming basic Christian beliefs as found in the Apostles Creed.
We believe that Christ sent his followers to build the Kingdom of God. An important part of God’s Kingdom work is providing water for thirsty people, those who need clean water to drink. Matthew 25
We believe that the profound human need for water portrays the reality of human need for God’s Holy Spirit. John 7:37-38
We believe that God provides and makes Himself evident as people call on Him asking Him for water. Isaiah 41:17-20
We believe that Christians are called to verbally and actively share the Good News of God’s Kingdom reign. Matthew 28:18-20
We believe that man is given responsibility for stewardship of the earth’s resources. This implies both development of the earth’s resources for human need with priority to the needy and care for the earth realizing that it belongs to the Almighty. Genesis 2
