STATIG: Stands for (Stewardship, Teamwork, Accountability, Transformation, Integrity, Good Governance) this values governs the operations and spiritual life of the Inkuru-Nziza church:

Stewardship  : Defines a man’s relationship to God. It defines God as the owner and man as the manager. God makes a man a co-worker with God in administering all of life to spiritual ends. Paul explains it by saying, for we are God’s fellow workers (I Corinthians 3:9).

 

 

Teamwork : A successful workplace leans to communicate, collaborate and continually innovate to reach key goals that align with the organization’s strategic plan.

Accountability : We believe in accountability as one tool of the believer’s belt that helps us into his holy and merciful presence. We believe that accountability is one of the key aspects that a church needs, we understand that accountability is a biblical principle. It is through iron sharpening iron that we grow ( Prov 27:17). We are to challenge each other to live in godliness (Heb 3:12-13) confronting one another when necessary (Matt 18:15-17, Luke 17:3). We are to carry one another’s burdens including provoking each other to good works (Heb 10:24) and picking each other up when we fall.

Transformation: Transformation is one of the key elements of the human spirituality phenomenon and is of the foundational area of study within the discipline of Christian Spirituality. (Christo Lombaard 2015)

Integrity:  In the Old Testament, The Hebrew word translated “integrity” means the condition of being without blemish, completeness, and perfection etc… While Integrity in the New Testament means “honesty and adherence to a pattern of good works.” We believe that Christian are called to be like Jesus. We are new creations and can be considered without blemish before God (2 Corinthians 5:17, 21; Ephesians 1:4-8).

Good governance  : [1] Good governance determines how resources are deployed by creating policies to be implemented by market, state, and civil society actors. Good governance is based on negotiations among and within the sectors and involves a combination of formal and substantive rationality. Governance includes civil society in decision-making processes from the beginning. The old model of citizen participation, where their involvement was expected to be that of a sanctioning body, brought citizens in at the end of the process.
