Vision & Core Values

Vision

The vision of Christar is to cultivate Christ-honoring transformation in communities where He is yet to be worshiped.

Christ-honoring transformation speaks to the process as well as the outcome. In the establishment of indigenous churches, we pursue a Christ-honoring influence on the community at large. As workers who partner with God in His work, we are a part of the transformation process that God is bringing about. God’s promise in Revelation 5:9 is clear. People from every tongue, tribe, people and nation will worship God in eternity. Our vision is to go to those people who are not accounted for in the eternal roll call of nations! Read more about Christ-honoring transformation and why we share the gospel with least-reached people.
