Kingdom of God
The Kingdom of God is first of all a grassroots movement of transformed people being used by God to transform families, neighborhoods, workplaces and local congregations so that we may experience the fulness of the abundant life that Jesus Christ brings. The only way in which this grassroots movement can really make a significant impact, is through growing integral disciple making movements in all countries of the world.
Integral healthcare is the compassionate care of all the needs of whole human beings in their entire context.
Compassion is the appropriate identification with the suffering of others leading to enabling action. Compassion is elicited by the observation of suffering. We allow the pain of others to touch our hearts in an appropriate way – neither too much nor too little.
Too much will lead to burnout, too little leads to cold and distant relationships. Appropriate identification touches us deeply enough that it stirs us into action – enabling action. By this we mean that we empower those who suffer to identify and solve their own problems using their own means as soon as possible. We take extra care not to make them dependent on us in the long run.
The needs of whole humans
All the needs of whole human beings are important. In the real world, people have needs in ten major areas. Healthcare workers need to collaborate with others to ensure that the needs of whole humans are met in all ten areas.
- Faith / Spiritual
- Esthetical / creativity
- Legal / judicial
- Educational / literacy
- Social (interpersonal)
- Psychological (intrapersonal)
