4 Point Strategy


Mission Statement

ULBC’s God-glorifying and joy-producing mission is to know Jesus and make Him known.

The Biblical perspective of missionaries being supported from others:

“I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me but you had no opportunity. Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content . . . I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:10-13

4 Point Strategy


Remember the danger of the tongue

“No human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly passion” James 3:8

Remember the source of disunity

“What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? It is not this, that your passions are at war within you?” James 4:1

Exercise genuine wisdom“The wisdom from above is . . . peaceable . . . And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” James
