Middle East Agape Radio’s Mission is to create communication experiences that share the Gospel while strengthening believers, through strengthen the local church and family unit as we provide spiritual encouragement with a Christ centered focus. Through Biblical teaching, relevant information and uplifting music to the Glory of God among the Arabic-speaking people as our ultimate goal is to achieve a time in history when “the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.”Habakkuk 2:14.
In achieving our mission, our chief method is the strategic use of mass communication and education that will train the young and adults to understand how the principles of the Kingdom of God. In achieving our mission, nothing should be done that does not glorify God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
Three words should characterise our mission. First, we will be creative. Our task is not to duplicate or copy other men’s labours. Second, we will be excellent. Our work must either be of lasting value and highest quality, or it should not be done at all. Third, we will demonstrate integrity. In our work, our public relations, our internal and external communications, there will be an abiding commitment to truth. Integrity must characterise all of our dealings with others.
In staffing for our mission, we must insist on securing the best possible men and women for each task, and we will make every effort to see that people and tasks are matched appropriately. Our policy will be to secure a small staff of outstanding people and to compensate them well for their labours. Our staff should be “filled with the Holy Spirit and wisdom.”Acts 6:3. God’s work must be done by God’s people, equipped and chosen.
We believe that God’s work, done according to the principles of His Kingdom, will prosper financially. We cannot serve God and money, so serving God and His call always takes precedence over conflicting considerations of money. Nevertheless, we recognise that only those activities which are economically viable can continue in our present society, so planning must take into account economic viability.
We also categorically state that the payment of accounts when due is a key ingredient of integrity. We seek to finance our activities by all lawful and morally correct means, including, but not limited to, contributions, sales, and investment income. In planning, we will endeavour to project adequate income for current activities, plus generous surpluses from which we can build and expand.
In the fulfilment of our mission, as to calling and message, we are inspired by John the Baptist -A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God” Isaiah 40:3- as we are preparing the way of the Lord Jesus Christ especially among the Arabic speakers.
