WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD

Our final authority is in God’s sovereignty as revealed in the Word of God.  He has the power to transform any person or circumstance.

Psalms 71:5 - For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.

 

 

 

DIGNITY

Teule believes in the inherent worth, dignity, and potential of each child and every person. Every person is created in the image of God for a specific purpose.  Therein, lies their dignity, worth, and potential.  

Genesis 1:27 - So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

 

LOVE  

At Teule we shall model and follow the example of Christ in His compassion for the needy (children, youth, and families) created in the image of God. All our activities and interventions will be characterized by love and compassion for all people.  

I Corinthians 13: 13And now these three remain; faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

INTEGRITY 

Teule will conduct its work with integrity, openness, and good stewardship. As stewards, we are accountable for both the achievement of desired results and for the prudent stewardship of the human, physical and financial resources entrusted to us. We shall ensure that we apply resources for optimal benefits to our work. We will seek to be accountable and transparent in all we do.

Proverbs 11:3 - The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.

GRATITUDE

At Teule, we maintain a culture of gratitude. We are thankful to God for all that we have, all we are able to do, and all we have done.  We desire to instill an attitude of gratitude where we actively express our thankfulness in word and deed through good stewardship and generosity. 

I Thessalonians 5:18 - Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

WISDOM

We know that making lasting changes in the lives of individuals and a community requires wisdom. When working with orphaned and vulnerable children, all members of Teule will be sensitive to their individual needs and the needs of vulnerable families.  We need to use Godly wisdom in all our decisions and actions.

James 3:17 - But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure, then peaceful, loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

UNITY

At Teule we know we cannot accomplish anything of significance in isolation. We understand that we need to work in cooperation with each other, our partners, stakeholders, and the community to fulfill our mission. We shall pursue and value active participation, engagement, and collaboration through listening to God, partners, and the community to achieve our vision. Teule will create connection, community engagement, and inclusivity for lasting impact. We will acknowledge our differences and bring our diversity to achieve our work in unity and teamwork as highlighted in the following 

Romans 12:4-5 - For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ, we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

Psalm 133:1 - How good and pleasant it is when the brethren live together in unity.

RESPECT 

We believe that everyone is created in the image of God and deserves dignity and respect. To this end, every person who works with or benefits from the work of Teule will be treated with respect. We shall not subscribe to ideologies or practices that degrade or demean others. We believe in full and inclusive participation by all and that every person, man, woman, or community has the right and the responsibility to contribute their talents, skills, and resources to the work we do.

I Peter 2:17 - Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.

LEADERSHIP

Ultimately, Teule follows the leadership of Jesus Christ. His leadership is exemplified by service, sacrifice, and empowering others.  As an organization, we lead by serving the children, families, and communities in which we work. We commit to empowering those we serve, so they can be leaders in their communities, Kenya, and the world. 

John 13: 14-15 - Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you should also wash one another’s feet. I have set an example that you should do as I have done for you.

Matthew 20:26 - Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be a servant.
