Our vision and mission
NET Foundation wants to provide these pastors with the knowledge, skills and guidance they need. We do this in collaboration with local Bible-based congregations and educational institutions so that they can perform the work as a pastor or evangelist with faithfulness and ability (2 Timothy 2: 2). Our desire is that the local pastor or church leader, through his calling and ministry, will see fruit at work in the local church and community and be more resilient against wrong influences from outside. Our mission is to equip, guide and encourage pastors for work in God’s Kingdom. To make that possible, it is important that they not only possess Biblical and theological knowledge, but also that they are also able to carry out their work with ‘head, heart and hands’, based on an inner conviction and with practical skills. To make this possible, NET Foundation wants to connect as much as possible with the context of its target group and make use of the efforts of local employees and partner schools.
Our identity and core values
NET Foundation wants to pursue its mission and goal from a Biblical perspective. This means that NET regards Scripture as the infallible Word of God. NET Foundation wants to be in line with the Early Church as expressed, among others, in the Westminster Confession.
Important core values for the work of NET Foundation are:
– Dependence on the Holy Spirit through the Word and prayer.
– Faith alone, grace alone, Scripture alone, Christ alone, glory to God alone.
– Collaboration with local reliable partners and employees on a reciprocal basis.
– Inspiring Christians in our followers to be involved with God’s Kingdom worldwide.
