Why we do what we do

Glasgow City Mission’s ethos is to work together to extend Jesus’ model of the Kingdom of God on earth by living out a lifestyle of love, truth, justice, mercy and forgiveness according to His teaching.

This ethos is the motivation for all our work and the reason we do what we do. We are inspired by the message, life and example of Jesus through which God’s unconditional love for all people is expressed. This ethos is given life through our relationships – the way we work together and behave with one another both demonstrate and authenticate our beliefs.

Our statement of faith

We are Christians who unconditionally value the people we serve. We believe in the living God who loves us and transforms lives. Because of this, we are inspired to share our faith, have compassion and seek justice for people in need. We are Bible based, Jesus centred, Spirit led and dependent on God and the power of prayer.
