The beliefs, core values and supportive principles of KKI are the expression of our basic beliefs, coupled with specific directives given to us by God since KKI was founded in 1976. They form the heart of our foundational convictions, relationships, lifestyle and expressions of ministry. They are rooted in God’s written word, the Bible, and have been confirmed to be the framework of our mandate through many formative experiences.
Values refer to those biblical principles that have distinctive significance in our ministry. They provide us with a definition of our identity, purpose, way of making decisions and guidelines for loving and serving God and our fellow man. As such, they have been given a dominant position. Our basic beliefs and other principles, while also important in the understanding of our ministry, include truths that may be common to other believers and other ministries as well.It is our hope that successive generations will learn to know, love, trust and obey God in accordance with these beliefs, values and principles. We further pray that they will take them into their hearts and learn to access the grace of God to faithfully apply them to their everyday living and expressions of love.
